Could the Labour leader be set to step down?
In a number of tweets early on Wednesday morning, Manchester Evening News reporter Jennifer Williams claimed Corbyn is not expected to leave immediately but has made plans to resign as the Leader of the Opposition.
She wrote: “Am told corbyn has given a departure date to his close circle. Hence the frenzy.
“Single sourced, I would add. Just to be total disclosure.”
- Labour leader imposes three-line whip on his MPs for Brexit bill
- Corbyn blows cool with Abbot and 'says back Brexit OR YOU'RE DONE'
Jennifer Williams, Political/social affairs editor for the Manchester Evening News, tweeted the news
She quickly added: “Third source agrees there's definite manoeuvring. Expectation that corbyn is going. Not necesarily straight away, but going.”
Express.co.uk has contacted the Labour Party regarding these claims.
