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.
Italian Populist Youth Group Praises Trump for His Peace Efforts
The Lega Nord is one of Europe’s strongest populist parties.
The Lega Giovani, the youth branch of Salvini’s Lega party, announced its support in nominating President Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Due to Trump’s efforts in brokering peace deals between Gulf Arab states and Israel, one Norwegian lawmaker Christian Tybring-Gjedde nominated the president for the Nobel Peace prize.
In a statement, Luca Toccalini, a member of the Italian Parliament and Chairman of Lega Giovani, declared that the “globalist left is losing its mind, scared by the outcome of the upcoming American elections, and this latest news decisively increased their worries.”
Toccalini added that Lega Giovani “strongly” supports the “nomination of President Donald Trump, a just reward for the continued dedication of his administration for lasting peace with a bilateral and multi polar approach.”
The populist Italian member of Parliament noted how Trump’s Middle East agenda has contrasted with Obama’s:
After a decade of turmoil in the Middle East and North Africa, sponsored by a globalist agenda and President Obama’s dreams of revolution, the last 4 years have seen great improvement for the stability in our neighbourhood which has also helped Europe.
Wishing four more years of peace and greatness, as Lega Giavani we strongly support Donald J. Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Matteo Salvini and Lega have led the way in putting populism on the map throughout Europe. Salvini broke the mold by implementing pro-gun reforms in 2018 and 2019. What seems like a concept that is only confined to the U.S., now the right to bear arms is starting to enter the conversation in Europe. Political organizations like Lega have undoubtedly changed political discourse in Italian politics and Europe, for that matter.
Youth organizations such as Lega Giovani will play a substantial role in spreading Lega’s message and educating younger generations of Italians and preparing them to be the new populist vanguard of an ever-changing European polity.
