Jeremy Corbyn Will Remain Leader Even If Labour Gets Destroyed In The General Election

Jez confirms he doesn't really care what the electorate thinks - he'll carry on anyway

Jeremy Corbyn has confirmed the worst fears of Labour centrists and anyone who hopes to see the party in power at any point in the next decade: he will remain as leader no matter what the result of the general election.

With every shred of evidence pointing towards a catastrophic defeat to Theresa May's Tory party in June, those who oppose Corbyn's leadership were clinging to the idea that, if nothing else, an electoral massacre will wash him and the left-wing faction of the party away like a cleaning rain so they can attempt to rebuild an effort to gain power and enact meaningful change in Britain.

Not so. With the arrogant zeal of tinpot dictator Corybn has declared that the will of the electorate is irrelevant, telling BuzzFeed: "I was elected leader of this party and I'll stay leader of this party," whatever the result.

Corbyn, of course, has the backing of Labour's thousands of two pound members – a great swathe of left-wing zealots, idealistic students and comfortably well-off liberals who like how his fantasy politics make them feel about themselves – meaning even facing the worse election result in the party's history won't be enough to vanquish his support.

More significantly, Corbyn's union allies are so determined not to lose control of the party to pesky moderates, they've vowed to stay in his corner: the Telegraph quotes a senior figure at Unite – Labour's biggest bankroller – as saying: "There is no way that we are going to give Jeremy Corbyn's scalp to the Right."

Where does this leave many of the struggling people in British society Corbyn purports to represent with his poorly costed promises of more bank holidays and free hospital parking?

Looking at a man with no charisma, fighting an election he knows he doesn't have to win, and with a heavy heart voting Conservative for the first time in their lives.
