More votes than when he first won the leadership last year.
Jeremy Corbyn has been re-elected leader of Britain’s opposition Labour Party, ending a “coup” attempt by more moderate MPs who say his left-wing agenda can never deliver victory at the polls.
The veteran campaigner’s triumph, by 313,209 to 193,229 votes, cements his authority over the divided party and will fuel his drive to turn Labour further left – a move many of his colleagues say will see them out of power and allow the ruling Conservatives free rein to set Britain’s divorce from the EU.

This is a huge endorsement, despite all the tough talk by the dissenters, of Jeremy’s push away from ‘just left of centre’ back to a more social labour party. I wish our NZ Labour Party could find some courage and do likewise.
