Sir Keir Starmer: Labour is united, we want a referendum

Mr Watson has created waves together with his deliberate speech and he's set to say that it's not too late to win again Labour's Stay voters who've been postpone by confusion over the celebration's place on Brexit.

Although Corbyn and other opposition leaders denied Johnson's motion to call an early election in a dramatic night in the House of Commons on Monday, the Labour leader's speech was reminiscent of the party's 2017 campaign which saw them win 30 seats and wipe out the Conservative's majority.

The Dudley North Member of Parliament, now sitting as an independent after he resigned the Labour whip in February over rising antisemitism in the party and Jeremy Corbyn's negative attitude towards the 2016 Brexit referendum, spoke out in an emergency debate on the rule of law Monday evening. As the Prime Minister's top adviser reportedly said, the negotiations are "a sham".

But on Tuesday, UK Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn told the TUC conference that it will promise a "credible Leave option" alongside a new European Union referendum if it wins a general election. If a new referendum was held, 37 per cent of Britons say they would vote to remain, 34 per cent say they would vote to leave while 18 per cent would not vote at all, Kantar said.

The aim of the bill that passed through parliament last week is to eliminate the possibility that Britain could leave the European Union on October 31st without an official withdrawal agreement.

As the Government tries ways to get around the bill, a newly-resurfaced report reveals not just how much Labour changed its Brexit policy in less than three years, but also what a Jeremy Corbyn's Brexit might look like.

The Shadow Chancellor said that Labour would not seek to prevent or delay Brexit, describing those trying to do so as being "on the side of certain corporate elites".

Johnson, who took office on July 24 to replace Theresa May, promises to carry out Brexit on the agreed date, with no excuses.

The prime minister said: "I think he [Jeremy Corbyn] has become the first leader of the opposition in the democratic history of our country to refuse the invitation of an election".

"There is no such thing as a good Brexit deal, which is why I believe we should advocate for remain", he will say.

He also accused the PM of cosying up to President Donald Trump to get a "one-sided" trade deal with the United States which would damage employment rights, the NHS and UK industry.

"But the only way to break the Brexit deadlock once and for all is a public vote in a referendum".

The latest row follows a series of clashes between the two men over Mr Corbyn's reluctance to embrace a second referendum and the party's handling of complaints of anti-Semitism.

"It will put us at the mercy of Trump and the big USA corporations itching to get their teeth further into our NHS, sound the death knell for our steel industry, and permanently drive down rights and protections for workers".

'A long-established election can also successfully fail to solve this Brexit chaos'.
