Corbyn could quit if polls don’t improve in 28 months, union boss admits

JEREMY Corbyn could step down as Labour leader if the party’s fortunes do not improve before the 2020 general election, a key ally has hinted.

Unite union chief Len McCluskey said Mr Corbyn and shadow chancellor John McDonnell were “not egomaniacs” and would not try to “cling on” at the head of the party.

Mr McCluskey said the leader and Mr McDonnell would “examine” the situation if Labour’s poll ratings remained “awful” a year before the scheduled election.

    Do we think he actually wants to be prime minister? I dont think so

    McClusky and his union are the Labour party’s paymasters, LMc wants a return on his ‘investment’ so he is setting out his stall. He does not see J.Corbyn Esq.as PM (Welcome to the real world Len)
    Forget the leadership elections, they were for party members to choose their leader. What matters
    is convincing Joe and Josephine Public that Corbyn is electable and that is an uphill struggle given that we are 6 years plus into a Tory government and Corbyn’s Labour party is -15% in the polls.

    The bigger question IMV is who should control the Labour party; The Labour leader or fat cat union bosses?
