Jeremy Corbyn has just vowed to vote down the Queen's Speech and said he is ready for a second general election.

Speaking on the Andrew Marr Show, he said:

I can still be Prime Minister. This is still on. Absolutely.

Theresa May has been to the Palace. She’s attempting to form a government.

[...] We will – obviously – amend the Queen’s Speech.

There’s a possibility of voting it down and we’re going to push that all the way.

Corbyn also claimed that another election would bring back stability - although it might be worth considering that is what this general election was supposed to do.

While the Conservative party descends into blame-gaming and in-fighting, the Labour party seem to have united behind Corbyn following his victory.

For Corbyn to succeed in this, Conservative backbenchers would have to support Labour in this endeavour, as well as almost all other MPs, while Theresa May clings to office.
