The crushing defeat was “a long time coming”, according to Labour Together, a group of MPs, party members, union leaders and media figures.

Its no-holds-barred report sets out the political, organisational and digital failures that led to Labour’s worst result since 1935.

It says the party “has a mountain to climb” to win the next election and called for root and branch reform.

The report said under Mr Corbyn, Labour had been unprepared for an election, went in with no clear message and, ultimately, with a complex manifesto, marked by a plethora of policy announcements seen as impossible to deliver.

The report also points to issues that marred Mr Corbyn’s leadership, including anti-Semitism.


It said simply stopping him was a major driver of the Tories’ success.

And it said activists were plagued by “crashing digital tools” that made work harder.

The review also showed Labour lost many voters due to Brexit, with more deserting the party before the referendum than in last year’s election.
