European elections: Corbyn’s DISASTER as Labour poised for worse election day in 35 YEARS

Ben Bradshaw aired his views on what appeared to be a dire day of campaigning for the party, whose mandate includes a so-called people’s vote or final say on the Brexit deal. He said on Twitter: “That was the most dispiriting Election Day in 35 years a Labour member. Our voters are flocking to the Greens & Lib Dems because of their clear & unequivocal support for a #FinalSay #peoplesvote & Remain.

“So sad & so avoidable. #BrexitShambles #EUelections2019.”

Voters were quick to wade in on his opinions on social media.

One commenter said in response to Mr Bradshaw saying Labour voters want scarp Brexit: “If you think most voters across Midlands and North England want to remain then that’s where your problems lie!”

Another said: “Here’s an idea: why don’t you wait until the votes have been counted before deciding whether the time is right to p*ss & moan.”

A third, referring to the top contender for Theresa May’s role after her shock resignation today, added: “The majority of Labour constituencies have voted leave and the majority of them areas will vote for the Brexit party in these EU elections.

“If Labour stand on a remain ticket or second referendum ticket with a Boris Johnson Government he will win a landslide.”

Another said: “Voters are flocking to the Brexit Party because d*ck heads like you have put in their heads that Labour is a remain Party.”

Labour remain behind Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party in the early opinion polls of the European election results.

This morning, the Brexit Party was on 35 percent of the votes, while Labour is at 20 percent.

The Lib Dems are hovering at around 16 percent with the Tory Party struggling at 12 percent.

Mr Corbyn today twisted the knife after Mrs May quit as leader of the Conservative Party, triggering a leadership contest.

He said he welcomed her resignation and called for an immediate general election.

He said: “Theresa May is right to resign. She has now accepted what the country has known for months: she cannot govern, and nor can her divided and disintegrating party.

“The burning injustices she promised to tackle three years ago are even starker today. The Conservative Party has utterly failed the country over Brexit and is unable to improve people’s lives or deal with their most pressimg needs.

“Parliament is deadlocked and the Conservatives offer no solutions to the other major challenges facing our country. The last thing the country needs is weeks of more Conservative infighting followed by yet another unelected Prime Minister.”

He added: “Whoever becomes the new Conservative Leader must let the people decide our country’s future, through an immediate general election.”
