Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nationalreview.com: “Jeremy Corbin to Resign as Labor Leader after Defeat in General Election | National Review”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Jeremy Corbyn, the socialist leader of Britain’s Labour Party, announced Friday that he will resign as leader after his party’s historic defeat at the hands of prime minister Boris Johnson’s Tories.

Corbyn called it a “very disappointing” night after only 203 of Parliament’s 650 seats fell to Labour members, the worst electoral result for the party since 1935. While he has vowed not to lead the party through another election, Corbyn said he will retain his seat during a “process of reflection.”

“I will not lead the party in any future general-election campaign,” Corbyn said. “I will discuss with our party to ensure there is a process now of reflection on this result and on the policies that the party will take going forward.”

“I will lead the party during that period to ensure that the discussion takes place as we move on into the future,” he added.

Even some members of his own party pressured Corbyn, 70, to not only step down as party leader but to resign entirely due to the loss, which they claim resulted largely from his failed leadership.
