Jeremy Corbyn is ready to win another election if one is called

Jeremy Corbyn is ready to win another election if one is called

Labour's Shadow Chancellor, John McDonnell, told LBC's Richard Suchet that the party is not celebrating the result, because "no one won", but he is grateful for the votes.

Mr McDonnell replied: "We're not celebrating".

Labour won 56 fewer seats than the Tories but defied expectations and deprived Theresa May of her majority.

The protesters added that the Labour party leader is an honest and straight talking politician who should form the next government with progressive parties.

He said the Daily Mail focused more on the negatives of Mr Corbyn rather than the potential positive outcomes of voting for the Conservatives.

Several MPs have said they were angered by key points in the Conservatives' manifesto, the document that outlined the party's agenda.

Labour needed to capture the imagination of the youth, but it turned out there were plenty of bored young people online happy to do their work for them and mock up memes that presented Theresa May as a malfunctioning robot and Jeremy Corbyn as "the absolute boy".

"We shall return to parliament this week; For those of us who always anxious about Jeremy Corbyn's electability, it is time to stand up and say that we got some of that wrong".

As rumours swirled around how long Ms May would last in the top job, Mr Corbyn's success prompted the Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson to write in The Sun that Mr Corbyn "did not win the election". "But I've got to get through the whole thing".

Mr Corbyn said he would not make any coalition deals or pacts but would instead put forward Labour's own programme for government.

Plaid Cymru Westminster leader Hywel Williams was asked later on Sunday Politics Wales if his party would help Labour keep the Conservatives out of government. We've said let's look at that and see if it can be reformed. "I don't think that they are either".
