Jeremy Corbyn says Theresa May must resign after London attack

The Labour leader attacked the Prime Minister's police cuts when she was Prime Minister

Monday, June 5, 2017

Jeremy Corbyn has called for Theresa May to resign in the wake of Saturday's terror attack in London Bridge.

In an interview with ITV News, Corbyn said May should resign because she presided over government cuts which reduced police numbers by 20,000 when she was home secretary, following the third deadly terror attack the UK has faced in three months.

The Labour leader said in a speech on Sunday the public cannot be protected "on the cheap" and insisted the security forces need more resources. 

He outlined on Twitter how Labour would rectify the problem, were the party to be elected.

May served as home secretary throughout David Cameron's period as prime minister, before taking the top job in the wake of the EU referendum last year.
