Corbyn’s position untenable says Ed Miliband amid warning of worst crisis since World War II

ED MILIBAND has called on successor Jeremy Corbyn to quit as Labour leader, saying his position is “untenable”.

The former party leader said he had supported Mr Corbyn “all the way along” but urged the Opposition leader to now reflect on what is “the right thing for the country”.

Britain is facing its worst crisis since the Second World War, Mr Miliband said.

He told BBC Radio 4’s The World At One programme: “I have reluctantly reached the conclusion that his position is untenable.”

Mr Corbyn’s camp insisted he was going nowhere and issued a “put up or shut up” challenge to Labour’s MPs.

Mr Miliband’s intervention follows a similar appeal from former acting Labour leaders Harriet Harman and Margaret Beckett for Mr Corbyn to fall on his sword.

Prime Minister David Cameron also waded into Labour’s misery, telling him: “For heaven’s sake man, go.”

  1. If you were a labour member who voted in Jeremy.

    And you are disenfranchised by your MP.

    Support Jeremy and get rid of the career politicians, that you despise so much.

    It is a democracy after all.


  2. Milibrand should know about treachery, he stabbed his brother in the back. Wasn’t it him, who devised the electoral system, which allowed Corbyn to be elected and now he’s saying we should ignore it. Says it all about what democracy means to some people, just a fashionable concept, until you don’t like it.
