Corbyn loses confidence vote

Labour's leadership crisis has reached a third day with fresh resignations coming ahead of a vote on a motion of no confidence in Jeremy Corbyn later today.

With Jeremy Corbyn's Shadow Cabinet now somewhat depleted, brains at Labour are left with less choice when it comes to who to send onto the airwaves to protect the leader's honour.

"Today's vote by MPs (Members of Parliament) has no constitutional legitimacy". Permission to use quotations from this article is granted subject to appropriate credit being given to www.theeagleonline.com.ng as the source.

Last week millions of Labour voters, particularly in the party's traditional heartlands, rejected its message to vote Remain.

Ex-frontbenchers have told the Telegraph that Ms Eagle is expected to stand and would receive support from many senior MPs in the party.

Corbyn allies have previously signalled that he will stand in any leadership contest because he has backing of the grassroots activists and some unions and will not be outed by what he called an attempted "corridor coup" by MPs. Chris Bryant, who quit on Sunday, said of the opposition leader in a phone interview Tuesday.

Jeremy Corbyn has lost a non-binding no confidence motion, with more than 80% of MPs voting against him.

Either way, the immediate task for those Labour MPs opposed to their leader is to unify around one figure to overthrow him. "Our people need Labour party members, trade unionists and MPs to unite behind my leadership at a critical time for our country".

'We are a democratic party, with a clear constitution.

Dame Margaret said she was unsure who should lead the party next but thought there were a number of strong candidates.

Furious Labour MPs told the leader to his face that he must quit for the good of the party at a heated meeting in parliament on Monday night. As the process of electing a Conservative leader takes weeks, if not months, the new prime minister will not be officially announced until early September.

"I have had hundreds of emails from Labour party members and Labour supporters asking me to pursue what I'm doing". He said: "There is no chance of him being Prime Minister but he is still leader of the party".
