Labour member pens personal rebuke to Corbyn

Former British shadow health secretary Heidi Alexander’s resignation letter reads as a personal rebuke to Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn.

The letter released Sunday marks the start of an open revolt against Corbyn’s leadership role following Britain’s vote to leave the European Union. Senior party figures are trying to pressure him to resign.

Alexander writes: “I do not believe you have the capacity to shape the answers our country is demanding and I believe that if we are to form the next government, a change of leadership is essential.”

She says Britain needs an “effective opposition” at a time of unprecedented challenges.

Other members of the Labour Party’s shadow cabinet have also resigned to protest Corbyn’s performance as leader.
