Triumphant Corbyn declares Labour 'a government in waiting'

Centrist Labour MPs are seeking to return to active roles within the party following their unexpectedly successful performance in the election.

Corbyn kept it simple and about the Labour manifesto, and the many goodies offered to the electorate.

Emily Thornberry today laughed off "boobgate" after a video of Jeremy Corbyn accidentally hitting her breast in a misplaced high five went viral.

Labour leader Mr Corbyn suggested Britain could soon be heading to the polls for the third time in less than three years after Thursday's election returned a hung parliament.

"So now the election is over, the next phase of our campaign to win power for the majority has already begun".

"We must remain in permanent campaign mode", he said.

The scenes were in marked contrast to the hard meetings Mr Corbyn had with his critics in the parliamentary party before the election. Leaving the gathering on Monday, Chuka Umunna, a Labour MP who has previously been a prominent critic of Mr Corbyn, described the session as "excellent".

The unusual circumstances the UK Government is now under, after a lost Tory majority lead to a hung parliament, was cause for some jeers when the newly re-elected Bercow addressed the house.

It also comes as Labour's top team prepares to announce the line-up of its Shadow Cabinet in the next few days. The main opposition Labour Party took 262.

The Conservatives remain the largest party but Mr Corbyn's party are feeling buoyant after their vote share soared.

"Far from being strong and stable, the Government Theresa May is putting together is weak, wobbly and out of control".

"We have a chaotic situation with a government that sought reelection on the basis of wanting a bigger mandate and a bigger majority to bring stability to British politics".

She later added: 'We are waiting in the wings and we'll step in if we are required and called upon to serve'.
