Jeremy Corbyn lost chance to replace Theresa May by just over 2000 votes

Jeremy Corbyn was just 2,227 votes short of becoming Prime Minister

British Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn was just 2,227 votes away from becoming the new prime minister in the just concluded snap general election, THE AFRICAN EYE has learned.
If Corbyn had won just seven marginal Conservative seats and formed a so-called ‘progressive alliance’ with other smaller parties, he would have been able to win a majority.
The DUP would not be in the picture today and Theresa May would've probably made a very different speech outside No.10 yesterday.
Ahead of Mrs May’s shock announcement to stay on, the Labour Party had said it was ready to form a coalition government, with Mr Corbyn announcing: ‘We are ready to serve’.
And they were so painstakingly close, that a coalition of Labour, Liberal Democrats, Scottish National Party (SNP), Plaid Cymru, the Green Party and one independent MP in the House of Commons would have been enough for Mr Corbyn to become the new leader.
