Professor eats his pro-Brexit book after election stunner

Professor eats his pro-Brexit book after election stunner

"I think it's pretty clear who won this election", he said at Labour's headquarters in central London. Ukip, who won nearly four million votes at the 2015 general election, saw their vote collapse and go to the two main parties in the wake of the Brexit vote.

Mr Kinnock resigned as an aide to the then shadow business minister Angela Eagle previous year, accusing Mr Corbyn of having a "half-hearted and lacklustre role" in the European Union referendum campaign. Both were critics of Mr Corbyn but indicated that they would... "When a government puts forward the Queen's Speech, we will put forward our point of view, we are of course ready to serve".

But, as it turned out, Corbyn defied expectations and won 40.3 percent of the vote in the United Kingdom, and so it was time for Corbyn to quite literally eat his words.

"That surely is a very important message that the people in this country, in every part of this country, have given us all today".

He then added that the party is preparing to form a minority government.

Ms Phillips said she had always retained open communications with the Labour leader - complaining about the "horrid vicious sexism" of his supporters towards her at one time, while sharing campaign intelligence from Yardley doorsteps at others.

Ironically, the book that he was challenged to eat is entitled "Brexit".

Aberavon MP Stephen Kinnock said he would be "honoured" to take a front bench job if it was offered to him.

The Conservative party reportedly spent £1.4 million on Facebook and social media advertising, whilst Labour's "digital army" instead spread their message online for free, using language and jokes that people were more willing to share.
