He must keep up the pres­sure

Daily Mirror - - NEWS - BY KEVIN MAGUIRE, AS­SO­CIATE ED­I­TOR

IF there were an early elec­tion, Labour would win and we’d hail Prime Min­is­ter Jeremy Cor­byn.

So his war­ring Tory ri­vals will kill each other over Brexit and put Theresa May out of her mis­ery... but will bribe, bung and bat­tle to avoid a sui­cide poll be­fore 2022.

Mr Cor­byn scents Down­ing Street and the faith­ful be­lieve he will be in No10 by next Septem­ber.

But the tough part is en­gi­neer­ing that elec­tion.

If this Par­lia­ment goes the distance, the odds are Labour will fight next time un­der a new leader.

Shadow Chan­cel­lor John McDon­nell demon­strated his im­por­tance as the ar­chi­tect of bold plans to re­mould the econ­omy.

But the party’s new dar­ling is An­gela Rayner, an ed­u­ca­tion spokes­woman of the old school, who this week emerged as one of Labour’s best TV per­form­ers.
