ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Britain's opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn called on Prime Minister David Cameron to repeal unpopular Conservative party economic policies, which he said were to blame for many in the country voting against the government in the referendum and choosing to leave. On Tuesday, MPs in the Labour Party passed a motion of no confidence in Corbyn, accusing him of not campaigning hard enough to keep the country inside the EU. But with Corbyn refusing to step down, Cameron lent his voice to the growing clamor for the Labour leader to resign. "It might be in my party's interest for him to sit there, it's not in the national interest and I would say 'For heaven's sake man, go'," said Cameron as the House of Commons jeered and cheered. As Britain grapples with its worst political crisis of modern times, the success or failure of Labour's coup attempt against its own leader will shape the country's post-Brexit relationship with the EU, the world's biggest trading bloc.
