Corbyn: May has 'lost' bid for mandate and should go

Jeremy Corbyn said Theresa May had failed to get a mandate.

Theresa May has "lost" in her bid for a Prime Ministerial mandate, Jeremy Corbyn said as he was re-elected MP for Islington North.

Being returned to the seat with more than 40,000 votes, the Labour leader said he was "proud" of the election campaign his party had run.

In his victory speech, Mr Corbyn said: "Politics has changed. Politics isn't going back into the box where it was before.

"Because what happens is that people have said they've had quite enough of austerity politics."

He added: "If there is a message from tonight's results, it's this: the Prime Minister called this election because she wanted a mandate.

"Well the mandate she's got is lost Conservative seats, lost votes, lost support and lost confidence.

"I would have thought that's enough to go, and make way for a government that will be truly representative of all of the people of this country."
