Brexit fall out: Corbyn out

Sky News was the first to announce it. Around 16:30, it reported Jeremy Corbyn lost the no confidence vote held this Tuesday afternoon.

Sunday Times’s James Lyons knew by how many votes: 172 to 40. Other British newspapers confirm about 81% of Labour MPs no longer had confidence in their leader after the Brexit results.

So there will now not only be a Tory Leadership, but also a Labour Leadership Election. Several Labour MPs are already putting themselves forward as candidates.
