Jeremy Corbyn mocked after insisting were the resistance just weeks after Labours worst result since 1935


JEREMY CORBYN has been mocked after insisting ‘we’re the resistance’ just weeks after Labour’s worst result since 1935.

The outgoing party leader used his New Year message to praise the movement he has led, completely ignoring it helped land Boris Johnson a stonking 80-seat majority.

Jeremy Corbyn has insisted his movement is the ‘resistance’.

Despite the brutal wipeout of Labours red wall, Mr Corbyn has still not stood down and continues to offer his views on politics.

He said: We are the resistance to Boris Johnson.

We will be campaigning every day. We will be on the front line, both in Parliament and on the streets.

The bizarre final year message repeats calls for the party to focus on the NHS and climate change, but once again fails to offer an apology for his role in Labours disastrous election.

He said: 2019 has been quite the year for our country and for our Labour movement.

Our movement is very strong. We are half a million people and growing. We are in every region and nation of our country.

The far-left leader will stand down by March next year, with Corbynite Rebecca Long-Bailey currently the favourite to replace him.

Now a host of political names have lined up to bash the 70-year-old for his unusual statement.

Labour MP Neil Coyle said: “We would be better able to ‘resist’ Johnson if Corbyn hadn’t just reduced our representation to the lowest levels since before the French resistance even existed.

“If Corbyn had resisted anti-semitism with any energy we may also have done better.

“If his team hadn’t ignored 100,000 members leaving we may have been better able to resist the Tories in the election.”

Former Labour MP Ian Austin, who stood down after criticising anti-Semitism within the party accused the the failed leading of being deluded.

Labour MP Neil Coyle lashed out at the failed leader.

He said: What will it take for Jeremy Corbyn to understand the damage his dreadful leadership has done to the Labour Party and the extent to which he and the party were rejected by the public?

Former Tory leader Iain Duncan Smith said: Labour have withdrawn into a virtual chatroom.

This leadership election now is in danger of becoming an exercise in virtue signalling to the hard-Left.
