Key Corbyn aide resigns, slamming Labour leader a loser

Andrew Fisher

One of Jeremy Corbyn’s closest aides has quit, declaring the Labour leader will not win the next general election.

Andrew Fisher – who wrote the party’s last manifesto – is said to have walked out before the Labour Conference in Brighton.

The former head of policy claimed the party was gripped by a “class war” among its top people.

He also cited a “blizzard of lies and excuses” for leaving.

In a memo, Mr Fisher criticised Mr Corbyn’s team for a “lack of professionalism, competence and human decency.”

As today’s conference opened a Labour spokesman said: “We don’t comment on staffing matters.”

The resignation will, however, come as blow to Mr Corbyn.

He’s already under pressure after a poll yesterday ranked him as the least popular opposition leader ever.

It’s said he may stand down as he feels under “incredible pressure”.
