Time for Corbyn to go, says Labour MP

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn must quit, party candidate Gareth Snell said on Friday, conceding that he expected to lose his parliamentary seat in Stoke-on-Trent - a city once regarded as a Labour stronghold.
Snell said a combination of the perception that Labour was blocking Britain's exit from the European Union, and some voters dislike of Corbyn meant he expected to lose the Stoke-on-Trent Central seat.
Asked if it was time for Corbyn and his finance chief John McDonnell to go, Snell replied: "Yes".
Stoke was hard hit by 1980s closures of heavy industry and coal mines but remains renowned for its porcelains, bone china and ceramics and Labour has represented Snell's Stoke-on-Trent Central seat since the constituency was created in 1950.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson's Conservative Party looks set for a resounding victory in Britain's election, allowing him to deliver Brexit on Jan. 31 in what would be the country's most significant geopolitical move for 70 years.
