Do you thing Jeremy Corbyn will resign if the Conservative Party wins with a large majority? If so, who do you think will replace him?

A lot of Corbyn's own MPs and party members don't support him so I really don't think a Corbynite like Diane Abbot or John McDonnell would be too successful if it comes down to a leadership race.

Depends if you believe Jeremy Corbyn, who said he didn't want to be the leader once he was past 70 years old.
Or Jeremy Corbyn, who said he had a mandate from the membership so would stay on.

If he does resign, I hope the new leader is literally ANYONE but Diane Abbot. Even the idea that she could be PM is scary.

No, he won't resign. He'll cling on, like a limpet (or like Neil Kinnoch, anyway). He'll always bang the 'democratically elected by the party' drum, even though he's a joke who couldn't win a game of Connect 4 with a 6 year-old, never mind a general election.

The only time he'll go is when his party forces him out. The tide has to turn against him.

What if the lack of support he has from his party leads to another leadership race? I personally don't think he is a good leader at all, the party needs someone who can unite all labour voters and someone who's numbers add up when it comes to financial policies.

I don't think he will. He will stay on at least until he can get the rules change to make it easier for another left winger to stand next time.

Ms Abbott would make a wonderful successor for Jez on the shadowy benches.

But he will be soon. Why stay on as leader if he's not then going to stay on to fight for PM at the next General, by which point he will be over 70.

It's not honesty when you contradict yourself.

If it does come down to another leadership race, I think someone like Keir Starmer or Yevett Cooper would be a good choice.

the future does not belong to stale white middle-class people. the labour party needs the vibrant leadership of Diane who speaks to the grass roots of every background.

So long as the polling is not wildly off and he can say he gained vote share then it does not matter because even if he goes next Autumn, another Momentum candidate will replace him.

that's completely factual but you are allowed to change your mind. he was never definite about the 70 thing.

If Labour lose more seats than before I expect he'll announce his intention to resign but will first change the Labour leadership election rules to allow John McDonnell to win rather than a moderate like Yvette Cooper or Sir Keir Starmer.

If Labour gain more seats then he'll stay on with the PLP likely staging another leadership challenge.

He won't resign. He is not just fighting the conservatives, he is fighting the labour party from within

Seems a jolly chap. One has to assume he supports the Islington positions on foreign and stuff though.

Hows your drift right going?
