Labor leader Jeremy Corbyn in an open letter in the British newspaper Sunday Mirror offered his apology to his supporters for the huge defeat that Labor suffered during last Thursday’s elections. The opposition party won 203 seats, the worst result since 1935. “We were short and I take my responsibility for that.”
Despite the severe defeat, Corbyn says:
…to be proud that his party offered a message of hope during the elections.
Corbyn said during the election night that he will remain at the helm of Labor for the coming period, as the party enters a period of reflection. But he will not lead the party in the next election.
The Labor leader has long been pursued by accusations of anti-Semitism and whether or not to support terrorist organizations such as Hamas and Hezbollah.
