Poll shows Corbyn got most labour leadership votes from 'post-election members'

Owen Smith has failed in his bid to become the leader of the Labour party.

However a new polls shows the Pontypridd MP won a clear majority of votes from members who joined the party before last year's general election.

The poll says that Corbyn enjoyed an overwhelming lead among members who joined Labour during and after last year's leadership election.

He was re-elected after getting more than 60% of the vote overall.

The result was announced at the party's conference in Liverpool this morning, and our Political Editor Adrian Masters was there

Wood claims Corbyn win could mean 'decade of cuts'

Leanne Wood warns of risks to Wales of Labour 'infighting'

Plaid Cymru leader Leanne Wood has responded to Labour's leadership election result by claiming that 'chaos and infighting' in the party will lead to 'a decade of decline under Tory rule in Westminster.'

She went on to say that the only alternative is to give Wales more self-rule.

This leaves us facing the prospect of a Tory UK Government‎ in London, that Wales has not voted for, doing its worst for the people in this country.

It is not often I agree with the MP for Pontypridd, but when he said that a victory for Jeremy Corbyn would condemn the UK to a decade of Tory cuts, it is difficult to see how he is wrong.

The only alternative to this now is a much a stronger devolution settlement for Wales and greater self-rule.

Labour have shown that they are unable to govern in Wales - just look at their poor outcomes after seventeen years of leading the Government - and this leadership contest has demonstrated how they are unable to act as a united and strong opposition in Westminster.

The case for our nation to be empowered with the tools that will allow people here to have a greater say on matters which affect their daily lives has never been stronger.

Tories claim Corbyn is 'devil's luck' for Carwyn Jones

A Welsh Conservative spokesperson has described Jeremy Corbyn's re-election as 'another chapter in the protracted saga of the Labour party's decline' and predicted 'more infighting, more division, more chaos.'

The spokesperson added that Mr Corbyn's leadership causes big problems for Welsh Labour.

For Carwyn Jones, Corbyn’s re-election is the devil’s luck. He has steadfastly refused to back him and once even suggested he should stand down.

The two men agree on very little and Corbyn is rumoured to have drawn up a so-called ‘hit list’ of Welsh Labour officials who opposed his re-election, so a Sword of Damocles now hangs over Labour’s future in Wales.

Labour remain disunited, chaotic and incapable of forging a better future for Wales and the UK. It’s crystal clear that only the Conservatives, led by Theresa May, can deliver a country that works for everyone - not just the privileged few.
