Beleaguered Jeremy Corbyn is facing the prospect of most of his MPs voting to oust him as Labour’s bitter civil war threatens to tear the party apart.
Furious Labour MPs told the leader to his face that he must quit for the good of the party at a heated meeting in parliament on Monday night.
But a defiant Mr Corbyn is refusing to bow to “a corridor coup” despite losing around 40 members of his front bench team in just two days.
Here is how papers in Britain and around the world handled the Labour crisis and Brexit fallout on Tuesday morning:
The Daily Telegraph
The Daily Mirror
International New York Times
Brexit is described as “Project Failure” on the front page of France’s Le Figaro, with Merkel and Hollande pressing the UK to ratify its exit from the EU.
Corriere della Sera
Italy’s Corriere della Sera splashes with Brexit and how it’s affecting the markets.
Wall Street Journal (Asia)
And the Asian edition of the Wall Street Journal also looks at how Brexit is battering the markets.
The Irish Independent leads with a look ahead at the talks in Brussels today, with Taoiseach Enda Kenny set to warn that the country’s economy and peace are on the line after the Brexit vote.
