Even if you don’t really follow British politics that closely, you probably have a pretty good idea that everything since the Brexit referendum has been deeply, utterly fucked.
Prime Minister David Cameron resigned pretty much immediately after the votes came in announcing that Britain would be jumping ship from the EU.
Now UK Labour and opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn is also under pressure to throw in the towel after facing mass resignations in his own party, due to a mini-revolt from shadow foreign secretary Hilary Benn – who was shut down quick smart when Corbyn sacked him.
It is an insane mess of titles and names to try and figure out just how many resignations they’ve been, but luckily the BBC prepared this handy chart:
Corbyn has told reporters that he has no intention of resigning:
“I was elected by hundreds of thousands of Labour Party members and supporters with an overwhelming mandate for a different kind of politics.
“I regret there have been resignations today from my shadow cabinet, but I am not going to betray the trust of those who voted for me – or the millions of supporters across the country who need Labour to represent them.”
Good luck to Britain who are currently experiencing probably the beginning of the end of the world.
