Bernie Sanders, the former US presidential election candidate, has congratulated Jeremy Corbyn, saying the election result is a sign of the world “rising up against austerity”.
Prime Minister Theresa May was fighting to hold on to her job on Friday as British voters dealt her a punishing blow.

“People in the UK, the US and elsewhere want governments that represent all the people, not just the 1%.
“I congratulate Jeremy Corbyn for running a very positive and effective campaign.”
