Just over an hour before the polls closed on Thursday, I took a call from a member of the Shadow Cabinet. Theres a strong possibility Jeremys going to resign tonight, they said. Hes not going to Labour HQ from his count. Theyre going to try to keep him away from people, and see if they can get him to change his mind. There was no need to keep him away from people. The people were coming to him in numbers not seen for a Labour leader since the 2001 Blair landslide.

Th MAY failed her campaign !
She should have GO TRUMP ! , following TRUMP’s way and then connecting with real , working people who are also fed up by the massive islamic immigration bringing terrorism and violence and taking jobs
She’s way too timid for that type of thing.
honestly I’m still puzzled as to how she even got the PM spot.
Comrade Corbyn allied with Sadiq Khan can still cause plenty of trouble & really roil what’s left of British society.
Agreed. IMHO, this all seems to have been a referendum on May as opposed to Corbyn and what he stands for. I wonder if the main good thing to come out of all of this is that May over the next while probably would have continued to do more damage to the Tory brand had she not called the snap election to the point that Corbyn may have actually won. With her hopefully packing it in soon, this may be still averted (I know, wishful thinking can get people here mad at me, lol).
This is really disturbing. In the US we do not have a major politician as far left or as openly sympathetic to terrorist organizations as Corbyn is. Not even Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren reach Jeremy Corbyn levels of leftist insanity. They might as well have reanimated the body of Joseph Stalin and ran him as the leader of the Labour Party. Its depressing that so many people were willing to vote for Labour when they had someone like this at their head.
May is pretty pathetic, but sometimes you have to hold your nose and do the right thing to prevent your country from totally going down the drain.
“Th MAY failed her campaign !
She should have GO TRUMP !”
There is simply not an ounce of “Trump” in that ugly shrew! She was the $hits as Home Secretary, and an even bigger failure as PM. Tories or Labour, either way GB is screwed, and those Neanderthals wouldn’t have the intestinal fortitude to go UKIP.
“Its depressing that so many people were willing to vote for Labour when they had someone like this at their head.”
Yes, but it’s equally depressing that we have people who are willing to vote for the likes of Sanders and Clinton. We should not throw too many stones at the Brits, as we are living in a similar “glass house” and we don’t have a huge Muslim contingent here as they do in London.
One thing I have noticed in parliamentary systems is when a governing party calls a snap election way outside the usual election call to solidify power it usually backfires since it takes for granted the electorate. No one likes a surprise election plus it feeds the idea that the governing party is power hungry. There is enough politics in the news as it is.
