Labour Throw In The Towel?

Labour is not trying to win the general election, one of the party’s senior MPs has admitted, as it emerged that at least 13 MPs have resigned in an exodus ahead of the vote. Helen Goodman, a former minister, conceded that Labour won’t win in June and Jeremy Corbyn won’t be the next Prime Minister after more MPs announced they will not stand again today. One of the most senior MPs to refuse to stand was Michael Dugher, the former shadow minister. Dave Anderson the shadow secretary of state for Northern Ireland also announced he will not seek re-election.
