Labour's predicted General Election surge is down to Jeremy Corbyn's positive message, according to John McDonnell.
The shadow chancellor said Theresa May had looked for a personal mandate from the election but is set to be "extremely damaged" by the result.
"I think what's changed is the political discourse," Mr McDonnell said.
"People wanted a positive debate. And what they got was quite a nasty campaign from the Tories, but a positive campaign from Jeremy.
"And I think they welcomed it."
Theresa May is expected to receive a frosty reception when she meets the 1922 Committee later. But what do we know about the group?
The Prime Minister appointed her former leadership rival as Environment Secretary as she confirms her new top team.
He insisted he would be backing Theresa May as leader and has warned MPs to "calm down and get behind the Prime Minister".
