Brexit: Labour deputy Tom Watson calls for referendum ahead of election

Boris Johnson trying to keep control of events

"Anybody who says it's all - this stuff about it being anti-democratic - I mean donnez-moi un break - what a load of nonsense", the Prime Minister said on a visit to a primary school in London.

In a bombshell intervention deepening Labour's civil struggle over Europe, the deputy chief will this present day narrate the 2016 vote modified into as soon as too lengthy ago to be official, and that a single-anxiety election would not fracture the Brexit impasse.

Addressing the annual Trades Union Congress conference, Mr Corbyn said he would reverse the "deliberate, decades-long transfer of power away from working people".

Shadow chancellor John McDonnell and shadow foreign secretary Emily Thornberry have both said they would campaign for Remain in a referendum, even against a Labour-negotiated Brexit deal.

"So a general election is coming".

"Only Boris Johnson and the Conservatives will deliver Brexit by 31 October, no ifs or buts, so we can move on and focus on the issues that matter to people - investing in the NHS, reducing violent crime and cutting the cost of living".

'And I can tell you this: We're ready for that election.

"The next Labour government will bring about the biggest extension of rights for workers that our country has ever seen".

Jeremy Corbyn is expected to clarify Labour's Brexit position later, arguing voters should be able to choose between a "credible" Leave option and staying in the European Union in another referendum. "We stand for the interests of the many - the overwhelming majority who do the work and pay their taxes - not the few at the top who hoard the wealth and dodge their taxes".

Tories are hijacking the referendum result to help "the rich".

Mr Corbyn also launched a series of policies on employment rights, vowing to put power "in the hands of workers".

But a general election is extremely unlikely until at least mid-November because of Mr Johnson's suspension of Parliament.

Joined by non-Labour representatives including Rory Stewart and Norman Lamb, "MPs For A Deal" argue that the "WAB", which MPs never got the chance to vote on, secured some of the concessions Labour had been campaigning for until recently and could gain a Commons majority.

"They want to delay Brexit yet again, without further reference to those who voted for it ... and so now the house will move to adjourn and resume the state opening and the Queen's speech on October 14, and I hope the opposition will use that time to reflect".

The PM is expected on Tuesday to continue to campaign for the election he is yet to have any success in triggering. The speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow, called Johnson´s tactic a "constitutional outrage", according to CNN.

The UK prime minister made a decision to send MPs home through October 14, but first tried to call a snap election to ensure his parliamentary majority, but the House of Commons twice opposed that proposal.
