Jeremy Corbyn: He’ll win the next election or quit as Labour leader, according to the shadow chancellor in a new interview.

The Independent is running a disturbing report that claims Jeremy Corbyn will quit as Labour leader if the party loses at the expected general election later this year.

The claim is from an interview between former New Labour spin doctor Alastair Campbell and shadow chancellor John McDonnell, in GQ magazine.

Mr McDonnell is quoted as follows, after being asked if Mr Corbyn would “stay on”: “I can’t see so. What we’d do is as the tradition, which is have an election for a new leader.”

He added: “I think it is the same for my own personal position.”

This is unfortunate as it gives every troublemaker in the UK a reason to campaign hard against Labour – to end the hope of a government that serves the majority, rather than a greedy few.

This Writer certainly expects Mr Campbell to try to capitalise on this as, being a staunch ally of the neoliberal Blairite project, he’ll want to see the reinstallation of an anonymous suit as Labour leader with a brief to make it as close to the Conservative Party as possible, in order to deny us any real choice in a general election.

The Liberal Democrats and the Tories, under the unspeakable Jo Swinson and the abominable Boris Johnson, will be much worse.

The forthcoming election is therefore shaping up to be a battle for the soul of the nation.

Will Mr Corbyn’s supporters fight to win?

Or do we hand the United Kingdom to the forces of darkness?
