Jeremy Corbyn draws battle lines for a future election in fiery speech

Jeremy Corbyn draws battle lines for a future election in fiery speech

Opposition leaders have not supported the votes, which needed the backing of two-thirds of MPs, because they fear an election could be used to force through a no-deal Brexit. Whether it is or isn't, the labour movement mobilisation against Boris Johnson's government should build throughout September and aim at a huge demonstration for democracy outside the Conservative Party conference, focused on forcing an election to address the catastrophic social, economic and environmental crises afflicting our country and the world.

Watson will insist that it is not too late to win back remainers attracted by the Lib Dems' simpler "stop Brexit" message.

Comparing no deal to the 2008 financial crash that saw "tens of millions of people who had nothing to do with it" pay for the consequences, Corbyn will warn that the government would seize the opportunity to "push through policies that benefit them and their super-rich supporters".

"If you are a worker with a boss who makes you work extra hours with no pay, or forces you into a risky situation, you deserve a government that fights for you", Corbyn said.

Labour leader Mr Corbyn has produced apparent his priority is for an election when no deal is off the table, but Mr Watson will argue that the only way to conclusion the deadlock is with a next vote.

A number of Mr Corbyn's colleagues want the party to unequivocally back Remain, but big backer the Unite union wants to ensure Leave is still an option.

Mr Corbyn threatened to "unleash the biggest people-powered campaign we've ever seen", when addressing union members.

He will promise that MPs won't be "silenced" by Johnson's decision to prorogue parliament.

"Prime minister: you can hide from parliament for a few weeks, but when we return we will be ready", Starmer will say. "Just as we worked throughout the summer to pass a law preventing no deal, so we will work each and every day we are shut down to enforce that law".

Watson's intervention is likely to be viewed as less than helpful by the Labour leadership. "And I think that's unbelievable, that decent people who have devoted their entire lives to mainstream politics are being driven out by this culture of extremism and in some cases, anti-semitism.I have to be honest and the truth is that I have become ashamed of the Labour Party under Jeremy Corbyn".

'So a general election is coming.

In his first public speech after the suspension of Parliament decreed by Johnson, Corbyn lashed out at the United Kingdom prime minister, who is seeking to leave the European Union (EU) without a deal.

"We will deserve all the ridicule we get if this is the manifesto".

Some members of the shadow cabinet, including Emily Thornberry and John McDonnell, have already made clear they would campaign to remain in a referendum, whatever deal Labour was able to secure from the EU27.
