Jeremy Corbyn, leader of Britain's opposition Labour Party which is currently languishing behind the ruling Conservatives in opinion polls, says he will not quit as leader if he loses a national election next month.

Corbyn, who is due to officially launch his party's election campaign on Tuesday, told BuzzFeed News he would carry on whatever the outcome of the June 8 poll despite surveys predicting Labour heading for its worst results in decades.

"I was elected leader of this party and I'll stay leader of this party," Corbyn told BuzzFeed on Monday.

Some recent opinion polls have put Prime Minister Theresa May's Conservatives ahead of Labour by more than 20 percentage points and was on course for a landslide victory, a result which May says will strengthen her hand in Brexit negotiations.
