Corbyn humiliation: BBC star tells Labour leader to get on his bike and 'go now!'

The Labour Party is still reeling from its shattering defeat to Boris Johnson’s resurgent Tories. The party won a measly 203 seats, seeing its northern strongholds fall to a blue tsunami as it recorded its worst general election performance since 1935. The defeat has prompted a whole lot of soul searching among Labour members and supporters, with some calling for Mr Corbyn to get on his bike without further delay.

Ms Meaden, a regular fixture on the BBC’s Dragon’s Den, has now added her voice to those calling for Mr Corbyn to go.

Taking to Twitter, she wrote: “Dear UK Labour please shape up.

“Jeremy Corbyn please step down and take your team with you now so you can start to rebuild. LG”

Social media fans soon took to the airwaves to express their support for her forthright views.

One wrote: “That man just won’t leave.

“Now they are blaming the BBC, Brexit and everything else for their massive failure.

“I expect him to blame Santa Claus next. Why does he not go?

“Leave Corbyn, go now. Put down your cup of tea and go now.”
