UK Labour's Corbyn says prepared to stay as leader until next year

"I called for, last night, a period of reflection in the party and obviously the ruling body of the party, our National Executive, will decide what process we follow then for the election of a successor to me," he told reporters.

"I'm quite prepared and obviously elected to do so, to lead the party until that takes place," he added.

Asked if he felt guilty about the scale of Labour's loss, Corbyn said he had done everything he could to win the election and bridge the divide in the electorate over Brexit, but said he felt the majority of Britain's media misrepresented him throughout his leadership.

"I just think we need to have some consideration to the effect this has on politics, when the whole political debate is seen through the prism of personal abuse and personal attacks," he said
