STUNNED Labour aides have left bottles of “Corbynista Victory Ale” unopened as the party looks set for a humiliating general election defeat.
The hundreds of bottles had been poised at Labour HQ ready for a celebration bash if Jeremy Corbyn managed to snatch victory from Boris Johnson.
But the exit poll last night has suggested Labour are in for their worst defeat since 1983 under Michael Foot – with calls for Corbyn to quit.
Sunday Times journalist Gabriel Pogrund tweeted a snap of the bottles, saying: “At Labour HQ, there are hundreds of bottles of “Corbynista Victory Ale” that have been left unopened
“Source texts: ‘People are being sent home so that we don’t take notes or leak anything’.”
The exit poll put the Conservatives on track for a huge win, with Labour trailing behind on 191.
The expected results mean Britain’s political chaos could finally be over, leaving Boris with the numbers to push his Brexit deal through Parliament in weeks.
Meanwhile, Jeremy Corbyn will be facing deafening calls to finally quit as Labour leader after failing to win a second general election in a row.
Former Labour Home Secretary Alan Johnson led the condemnation of Corbyn’s failed leadership – saying he could not lead the working class out of a paper bag.
And Corbyn’s right-hand man John McDonnell all-but accepted it was the end of the road for them after four disastrous years in charge.
It comes after Brits queued at polling stations across the country yesterday despite the miserable weather to cast their vote in the 2019 general election.
Boris had urged Tories to turn out, saying: “Today is our chance to get Brexit done. Vote Conservative.”
As he was pictured campaigning this evening in his constituency of Uxbridge and South Ruislip, hisgirlfriend Carrie Symonds also told voters to “keep going”.
The third General Election in less than five years has been largely dominated by the 2016 vote to leave the European Union – with Labour pledging to give voters another say in a second referendum, while the Tories have vowed to take the UK out of the EU next month.
The last election in the UK in 2017 saw a 68.8 per cent turnout, higher than at the 2015 and 2010 elections – with bookies offering 6-4 odds on a 65-70 per cent turnout this year.
