Jeremy Corbyn will not lead Labour into another election campaign as he faced mounting calls to step aside immediately. The Labour leader last night called for a “process of reflection” following the crushing defeat, which is now expected to be the worst since Michael Foot led the party to disaster in 1983, reports the Telegraph.
Results from 649 out of the country’s 650 constituencies show a comprehensive victory for the Conservative Party, which has gained a majority in the House of Commons. On the other hand, the Labour Party suffered its worst election result since 1935. Jeremy Corbyn has already announced his decision not to lead the party in the next election.
