Jeremy Corbyn was pictured leaving by the back exit between bins at Islington Town Hall today after refusing to accept the blame for Labour's election catastrophe yesterday – despite a poll identifying his leadership as the biggest factor in the party's worst defeat since 1935. After his utter humiliation at the polls, Mr Corbyn resisted pressure to quit immediately, saying he would cling on for several months to allow his party to 'reflect' on the reasons for the defeat. In an astonishing interview he declined to say sorry to the dozens of MPs across the North and Midlands who lost their seats as a result of Labour's failure to appeal to working-class voters.

BORIS Johnson held Brexit talks with Ireland’s boss last night after EU chiefs told him it was crucial the pair strike a deal. The PM tried again to thrash out a replacement to the Irish backstop with Leo Varadkar last night. The pair met on the side lines of a UN summit in New York.

LABOUR has confirmed it will betray millions of leave voters and campaign for a second referendum, and to Remain in the EU.

Boris Johnson can now kick back and watch Labour's implosion on BBC News in the Downing Street flat after winning an 80-seat majority. The Prime Minister's general election triumph - thanks to Labour's worst rout since 1935 - means he can now proceed with his plans to hold a Queen's Speech next week. So when will it actually happen, what will he prioritise and what votes will happen before Christmas? First, Boris Johnson could carry out a mini-reshuffle of his team from Monday - though as all Cabinet ministers kept their MP seats he doesn't need to make many changes unless he wants to.
