Corbyn commits to second Brexit vote if Labour Party wins general election

Tom Watson gave a speech to the Creative Industries Federation at Somerset House in London

Johnson, who has misplaced his working vast majority in the Home of Commons, would like to keep an election but parliament has purchased him to question the European Union to hold off Brexit until 2020 unless of course he can strike a transition offer at an European Union summit on October 17-18.

Mr Corbyn has said Labour must offer voters both Leave and Remain options.

In a speech on Wednesday in London, Mr Watson will say a single-issue Brexit election may not break the deadlock in Parliament - something only a second referendum can achieve with certainty.

In the early hours of yesterday morning, Mr Johnson lost his second bid for a snap general election amid angry scenes in the Commons.

Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said on Monday that the United Kingdom was in unsafe territory as voters were concluding that parliament was hindering Brexit.

He furthermore slammed "interfering" judges for ruling Boris Johnson's suspension of Parliament to be illegal.

Responding to Labour's plans, Conservative Party chairman James Cleverly said: "Labour's deputy leader makes clear Labour want to cancel the referendum result".

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.

There was little headway in resolving the divisive Brexit imbroglio after a critical week that saw Prime Minister Boris Johnson facing six defeats in six days and unprecedented scenes in the House of Commons before Parliament was prorogued on Monday night.

Mindful of this, Brexit leader Nigel Farage has made an offer of a non-aggression pact to Mr Johnson on several occasions, and today said his price would be an unopposed run at 90 Parliamentary seats in the next election.

First priority is to stop a no-deal Brexit before heading to an election. "We ask Labour to rethink and engage with business", said Josh Hardie, CBI deputy director-general. If there is still a majority for Brexit, what do they have to fear?

Mr Corbyn told union members: "No-one can trust the word of a Prime Minister who is threatening to break the law to force through no-deal".

"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. "Better wages, greater security and more say".

"My experience on the doorstep tells me most of those who've deserted us over our Brexit policy did so with deep regret and would greatly prefer to come back; they just want us to take an unequivocal position that whatever happens we'll fight to remain, and to sound like we mean it", he said.

However, some haven't given up hope they can yet convince him there is no "credible Leave option", and if he is in a position to call a referendum, he'll opt for Remain.
