Gordon Brown believes Jeremy Corbyn will 'probably go'
The former Labour leader was giving a speech on the future of the UK after the EU referendum.
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn will "probably go", former Prime Minister Gordon Brown has said.
Corbyn is under intense pressure to resign from his post following a no confidence motion being past by Labour MPs.
Dozens of members of the shadow cabinet have resigned since the early hours of Sunday morning after Hilary Benn was sacked as shadow foreign secretary after informing Corbyn he had no confidence in him.
Brown believes Corbyn will leave his post and the party need a leader who is "able" to answer questions from the public who are worried about their prospects.
The former Prime Minister said: "Well, Jeremy Corbyn is under real pressure to go and really the issue for the future of the Labour Party is not just whether we are electable it's whether we have a plan, a programme that answers people's worries expressed last week at the referendum.
"People worried about jobs, the prospects for their children. Worried about the health service, worried about how we can manage this huge global change that is taking place and make it fair and exclusive [inclusive] and therefore Jeremy Corbyn will probably go but the issue is: Can the Labour Party develop the plan that is necessary.
"That's what leadership is about, showing people that you have a way forward and particularly when the country is divided. It looks leaderless at the moment because the government - the present government - seem to have given up and because people are wanting answers to questions that have left them confused.
"We need a Labour Party with a leader who is able to answer these basic questions".
Gordon Brown delivered a speech in Glasgow earlier on Wednesday which outlined the need to meet the challenges posed by globalisation.
"To understand the causes of the anti-establishment rebellion we should set up an all-party commission that brings in people with much to contribute from all over the world and usher in a national conversation on all aspects of globalisation.
"The aim should be to make globalisation work for the British people in an inclusive and fair way - asking how we can take new measures - to raise skills, to compete in new areas, to help the low paid, to increase the supply of jobs, to relieve communities under pressure - and thus respond to the insecurities that globalisation can bring. This is the central economic issue of our times.
"Given that we are trying to address the concerns of people who feel left behind by global change we should encourage a national conversation on global change that includes that immigration brings great benefits but has to be managed."
The former Labour leader campaigned for a Remain vote in the EU referendum.
