Corbyn under mounting pressure to quit as Boris Johnson tours north to celebrate victory markadan | 2019-12-14 20:41 UTC

Boris Johnson has told traditional Labour voters who helped him win an 80-seat majority at the general election he would “repay your trust” during a visit to Tony Blair’s old constituency of Sedgefield.

It comes as Jeremy Corbyn faces fresh calls to stand down as Labour leader immediately, with David Blunkett condemning his “ultra-left wing sect of losers”. John McDonnell said he will not be part of the future shadow cabinet, stating: “I’ve done my bit… we’ll all go now.”

There were several arrests as hundreds of protesters came out onto the streets of the capital in the wake of Mr. Johnson’s election victory, chanting “not my prime minister” and “defy Tory rule”.
