Socialist Jeremy Corbyn to Resign as Labour Party Leader After Election Whipping

The Labour Party was destroyed by the Tories in Britain’s general election.

Jeremy Corbyn announced that he will resign as leader of the UK’s Labour Party when speaking after his party’s devastating landslide defeat in Thursday’s general election.

Corbyn’s leadership became untenable when it became clear his party would lose overwhelmingly to Boris Johnson’s tories. The Labour leader and longtime socialist activist confirmed that he would tenatively step down as leader of the party when speaking at his election event Thursday night in his constituency of Islington North.

I will not lead the party in any future general election campaign. 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. And I will lead the party during that period to ensure that discussion takes place and we move on into the future.

Corbyn will remain on as leader of the party during a transitional period, probably hoping to usher in a leader that shares his left-wing views.

Exit polls suggest that Johnson’s Tories will secure a sizable majority in Parliament, taking a whopping 368 seats compared to Labour’s 191. The Conservatives will now have enough votes to finalize a Brexit plan without the votes of Labour Members of Parliament.

The socialist claimed that the left-populist policy positions he staked his party’s general election campaign on were in fact popular, but that the prevalence of ongoing Brexit proceedings in the United Kingdom drowned out his arguments. Labour offered a vague and lukewarm Brexit policy, refusing to endorse outright rejecting the 2016 referendum while rejecting a commitment to following through on the departure of the United Kingdom from the European Union.

The defeat of Corbyn’s Labour at the hands of Boris Johnson’s establishment conservative party signals a significant setback for left-wing populists and socialists across the western world. Corbyn had been known for a willingness to push his party further to the left than what voters usually associated with a center-left party.

Pope Francis Prays For Coronavirus Relief in Unprecedented Empty Vatican Audience

The Pope appeared alone.

Published

on

Pope Francis prayed that God would comfort Italy and the world in the midst of the raging Chinese coronavirus epidemic, appearing in an unprecedented Vatican audience in Saint Peter’s Square. Papal events at the Vatican are almost always filled with pilgrims and the faithful, but the ceremony overseen by the Pope was entirely empty on account of the strict quarantine imposed on Italy as the nation reels from an unmatched death count from the disease.

Imagery of the event revealed the striking emptiness of the Vatican square, the overcast and rainy weather adding to the solemn nature of the papal event.

May God’s blessing come down upon you as a consoling embrace,”  said the Pope at the event. “Lord, bless the world. Give health to our bodies and comfort our hearts.”

The Pope encouraged prayer from the faithful for those directly involved in the response to the historic health epidemic- healthcare workers, doctors, grocery employees, police and volunteers.

The Pope chose to deliver the traditional ‘Urbi et Orbi’ address at the event, a Vatican tradition that is usually reserved for Christmas and Easter. The prayer implied the likely cancellation of Vatican Easter proceedings, with the devastation caused by the coronavirus in Italy likely precluding any major gatherings within the coming months, at least. Reports indicate that the Pope will celebrate traditional Good Friday and Easter Sunday masses, but alone, in a manner similar to Friday’s papal appearance.

Catholic Sunday Masses have been entirely cancelled in Italy, a nearly entirely unprecedented development that speaks to the gravity of the situation in the disease-stricken country. The nation had its worst day in terms of casualties on Friday, with deaths rising to 9,134, with a total national count of almost 87,000.
