Corbin licks defeat wounds: "We did not meet mission, accept responsibility"
The Labor leader, who promised to clear the way after the bitter loss in the election, defended his campaign and blamed the British media for describing his party, which had its worst result since 1935. "I am proud that our message was one of hope, not of fear"
UK Labor Party leader Jeremy Corbin apologized on Sunday for the overwhelming defeat of the party in the UK parliamentary election. However, he defended his campaign, which failed to pull Labor's base of support from the working class, describing it as a campaign of "hope and not fear."
Prime Minister Boris Johnson's Conservative Party won an overwhelming majority of 365 seats out of a total of 650 seats in the House of Representatives in Thursday's election. Labor received only 203 seats, their worst result since 1935. "I'm sorry we didn't meet the mission and I take responsibility for it," Corbin wrote in a letter in the Sunday Mirror newspaper, affiliated with Labor.More in Walla! NEWS More in Walla! NEWS

Corbin, who faces fierce criticism from his party after the electoral defeat, said he would resign from the party leadership he has been in since 2015 after undergoing a "self-examination process." The process of replacing the Socialist leader will begin early next year, but some party members have called for his immediate resignation.
"I am proud of the campaign we have run. I am proud that no matter how low our rivals have come down, we have refused to join them in the sewers," Corbin wrote. "And I'm proud that our message was one of hope, not fear." He also blamed the media for the way it portrayed his party.
Corbyn's radical socialist platform, blamed by the Jewish community and its rivals for anti-Semitism and non-struggle within the party, failed to spur voters who have grown tired of more than three years of political clashes over leaving the EU. Johnson's campaign revolves around three words: his commitment to "complete the barracks."
One possible candidate to network Corbyn's 70 is MP Lisa Nandy, who told the BBC she "seriously thinks about it."
