Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn Under Fire For Visiting Ghana When He Should Be Consolidating Support To Takeover the Gov’t

2 min


Leader of the British Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, is expected to visit Ghana next week at a crucial time in British political affairs.

Corbyn is making a bid to become caretaker Prime Minister to stop Boris Johnson from taking the country down the path of a no-deal Brexit, and is expected to be meeting members of the Conservative and other parties to attempt to build support.

Instead, Corbyn will be in Ghana next week for a 4-day ‘fact-finding trip’, during which he’s expected to meet both Preisdent Nana Akufo-Addo and former President John Dramani Mahama.

UK newspapers the Daily Mail and the Sun have both torn into him for the trip, and other MPs are also unhappy that he’s making the trip at such a crucial time.

MailOnline quotes a Labour MP as saying: “It would help matters if the party leader wasn’t going abroad at such a time but what would help most is if he wasn’t Labour leader.

“People in his own party don’t trust him so what chance is there of people in other parties backing him?”

Negotiations for Brexit are still not working out, and new PM Boris Johnson has promised a no-deal Brexit – the UK leaving the European Union without an interim trade deal.

Many MPs are said to be against the idea and Corbyn was planning to use that to successfully execute a bid to become caretaker PM. Even before this trip, it was unclear if he could build up enough support to do so.
