Brexit: Corbin under fire for not supporting enough "Remain" Camp, Labour party "lost confidence"
Date created : Latest update :
The deep divisions in Labour were blown into the open when Corbyn sacked his foreign affairs policy chief, Hilary Benn, overnight because, as his spokesman said on Sunday, “he has lost confidence in him”. A growing number of Labour lawmakers have called on Corbyn to resign in the aftermath of the vote to leave the EU. Some party members say he failed to assuage concern among the party’s traditional supporters; others that he should have campaigned more in favour of EU membership.
