The Twitter user named Colin Corbynista claimed he didn’t know a “single Labour members” who thinks Mr Corbyn should resign. The Corbyn supporter said it was only rebels and Conservatives Party supporters who wanted him to pack his bags because they’re “so terrified of him”. But when he asked his followers “do you think that Jeremy Corbyn should resign?” 75 percent of the 49,168 respondents said yes, compared to 25 percent who said no. He tweeted on May 27: “I don’t know a single Labour member who thinks Jeremy Corbyn should resign. It’s only Centrists and Tories who want him to resign as they’re so terrified of him.” 

“Do you think that Jeremy Corbyn should resign?

“Please retweet for good sample size


He later blamed “bots” for the result, writing: “I’ve only got 2.5k followers and my poll got about 4000 retweets. So how come my polls seem to get tens of thousands of votes? Bots, I’d say. I shall discount any votes that I think have come from a dubious source.” 

Jeremy Corbyn has hinted the Labour Party received a drubbing in the European Parliament elections.

The Labour leader has now hinted he may move towards backing a second referendum as he battles to claw back support.

In a statement, the Labour leader said the EU elections had become “a proxy second referendum”.

He added: “With the Conservatives disintegrating and unable to govern, and Parliament deadlocked, this issue will have to go back to the people, whether through a general election or a public vote. 

“Labour will bring our divided country together so we can end austerity and tackle inequality.

“Over the coming days, we will have conversations across our party and movement, and reflect on these results on both sides of the Brexit divide.

“We will not let the continuing chaos in the Conservative Party push our country into a No Deal exit from the EU. Parliament can and will prevent such a damaging outcome for jobs and industry in the UK.”

With results declared from all nine regions of England and in Wales, Labour came in third place behind the Liberal Democrats in second.

Labour received 2,346,441 votes, with 14.1 percent of the vote, down 11.3 percent on the EU parliamentary election results in 2014.

The Lib Dems picked up 3,366,673 votes with a 20.3 percent share of the vote, up 13.4 percent on last time.

The party finished first in London and ahead of Labour in four other English regions.
