Gordon Brown Successor Lesley Laird Given Shadow Cabinet Post In Labour Reshuffle

Jeremy Corbyn was applauded by Labour MPs as he returned to the House of Commons following his party's surprise election gains.

Mr Corbyn and Ms Thornberry, MP for Islington South and Finsbury, were celebrating Labour's election results when the Labour leader made a decision to go for a high-five. He's been famously sceptical about Corbyn - he did challenge him for the leadership, after all - but last week he did admit he had been "clearly wrong" about the leader's abilities.

With no chance to change to stop himself, Mr Corbyn appears to accidentally smack Ms Thornberry's breast.

"The way in which Jeremy Corbyn and the supporters certainly threw themselves into this general election campaign, if only he'd shown that level of enthusiasm going into the referendum.we might be in a different place on that issue as well", the interviewee said.

"I must let the House know - and the rest of the nation know - that if that is not possible, the Labour Party stands ready to offer strong and stable leadership in the national interest".

The first projection is that the Conservatives will win between 308 and 328 seats, with 326 required for a majority.

In other moves, the newly elected MP for Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath, Lesley Laird, becomes shadow Scottish secretary.

Mr Corbyn said: "I am delighted to announce four appointments to fill shadow cabinet vacancies". They'll defend their communities against May who has no mandate.

Ms Laird added: "My priorities are the things that people told me are important to them in the General Election campaign: that's jobs, housing and public services". I look forward to working with the strengthened shadow cabinet as we prepare a government in waiting to carry out our manifesto for the many not the few.
