Britain’s main opposition Labour Party lost over half of its shadow cabinet by Monday following a spate of resignations in protest at leader Jeremy Corbyn in the wake of Britain’s vote to leave the European Union.

The latest of the ministers to announce they no longer had confidence in Corbyn’s leadership was Angela Eagle, who stands in for the veteran socialist when he is absent from debates with the prime minister.
