Jeremy Corbyn’s backing for Brexit vindicated by electoral gains

Jeremy Corbyn says he is "ready to serve the country" but refused to be drawn on whether he would try to form a minority government.
The Labour leader reiterated his call for the Prime Minister to resign as he claimed it was "pretty clear who won this election".
Mr Corbyn said his party had made no deals or pacts, but added: "We are ready to do everything we can to put our programme into operation."
He said: "Parliament must meet and Parliament will have to take a decision on what happens, when a government puts forward the Queen's Speech, we will put forward our point of view, we are of course ready to serve."

Asked about Brexit talks due to begin on 19 June, Mr Corbyn said they "will have to go ahead" and called for a "jobs-first" agreement with the EU.
Boris Johnson is the favorite to be the next Tory leader - and has already refused to back Theresa May after her election nightmare.
The outspoken Foreign Secretary was repeatedly asked if he believes Mrs May should be Prime Minister but would only say 'it's early days' after retaining his Uxbridge seat.  
The knives are out for the Tory leader after a dismal campaign, a series of policy blunders and a manifesto now branded the party's 'worst ever'.
Theresa May is said to have 'no intention' of resigning and plans to form a Government - but some MPs including Anna Soubry said she should quit as soon as possible.
George Osborne said the result was ‘completely catastrophic for the Conservatives and Theresa May’ and said the woman who sacked him would be lucky to survive.
Jeremy Corbyn has again repeated his demand that Mrs May leaves office immediately - John McDonnell said he expected Boris' leadership campaign to start today.
