Bury South MP Lewis 'Corbyn cannot lead us back to Government'

"Unfortunately, it is clear Jeremy Corbyn cannot lead us back to Government and there is a real risk we will suffer a worse election result than in 2015.

"Having taken sounding from Labour members and Councillors in Greater Manchester this weekend I feel I have a duty to stand up and be counted.

"So today I have written to Jeremy and asked him to resign ahead of this weeks no confidence vote."I have been loyal to Jeremy since he became leader."

– Ivan Lewis MP, Bury South
