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.
Polish Election: National Conservative President Andrzej Duda Leads, Will Face Soros-Linked Liberal Challenger in Runoff
Poland’s President won the first round of the runoff.
Poland’s national conservative President, Andrzej Duda, will face liberal Warsaw Mayor Rafal Trzaskowski in a runoff election in July. Duda, of the Law and Justice Party, recieved a strong electoral plurality in the first round of elections, taking just under 44%. Trzaskowski recieved 30%, and will be the sole candidate competing against Duda in the runoff elections.
Trzaskowski favors further integrating Poland with the European Union, and has pitched his candidacy to global liberal western elites irritated by euroskeptic and nationalist sentiment in Poland. He’s attended the globalist Bilderberg Conference, and received a scholarship from the Soros Foundation in the early 90’s as a student.
Trzaskowski also led the movement within the country to resettle thousands of Middle Eastern refugees in Poland during the 2015 migrant crisis, a policy that was overturned after Duda took office that year.
Duda has campaigned on reforming the nation’s judiciary, resisting political imperatives from unelected European Union bureaucrats in Brussels(without calling for the Eastern European nation to leave the EU), and opposition to attempts to promote a western-style cultural agenda in Poland. Duda has spoken against the promotion of homosexual ideology in the country, comparing the previous generation’s experiences living under communism to the liberal agenda. “They didn’t fight for this so that a new ideology would appear that is even more destructive,” said Duda in a campaign rally earlier this month.
Various other political parties competed in the first round elections, including other right-wing and conservative parties, who marshaled approximately 9% of the vote combined. If Duda can unite voters inclined to vote for parties to the right of Law and Justice, he stands a strong chance to cruise to an easy victory with more than 50% of the vote.
