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.
