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

But when asked about a potential alliance on the Andrew Marr Show, Chancellor Sajid Javid said: "We don't need an electoral alliance with anyone".

Efforts will be put into getting a Leave deal - pleasing Unite - but there will also be an option to Remain - pleasing the GMB.

Mr Farage has offered a "non-aggression pact" between his party and the Conservatives, on the condition that Mr Johnson sign up for "a clean-break Brexit" - in other words, no deal.

Mr Corbyn recommitted to a second referendum on Brexit, which he said would include a "credible option to Leave" as well as Remain.

Wednesday will also mark a deadline set by MPs for the Government to publish communications connected to prorogation and no-deal Brexit planning.

Tom Watson argued that it is not too late for Labour to win back Remainers who have switched to supporting the Liberal Democrats who are campaigning unambiguously to revoke Brexit.

When he (and adviser Dominic Cummings) get their early general election, they are likely to fight on a people versus Parliament ticket: "tell them again".

Lewis told MPs: "Because [Jeremy Corbyn's] leadership has the led to the party of anti-racism and equality becoming the party of institutionalised antisemitism, so much so Mr Speaker that the majority of Jews in this country feel they would not be safe in the event of him becoming Prime Minister".

Mr Farage made the remarks from Sedgefield in the north east of England, where he has been out meeting members of the public today as part of the Brexit Party conference tour.

Johnson's bid to quit the bloc "do or die" on October 31 has hit the buffers: parliament has ordered him to delay Brexit until 2020 unless he strikes a deal, while a new Brexit Party is threatening to poach Conservative voters.

'He wants to stage a showdown over a no-deal Brexit that he can package as a battle between parliament and the people, ' Jeremy Corbyn said.

Yesterday, Jeremy Corbyn met union leaders to seek a consensus that Labour continue backing a referendum giving the public the final say on Brexit when it is clear what that would involve.

"We are in the biggest political crisis any of us have known in our lives and I'm trying to offer a solution and a way out, I'm giving him the opportunity to be a hero".

Labour is "united around the idea there should be a referendum" on the outcome of Brexit, the party's shadow Brexit secretary Sir Keir Starmer has said.

"All leaders agreed that they would not support Boris Johnson's ploy to deny the people their decision by crashing us out of the European Union with no deal during a general election campaign", a spokeswoman said.

'We see this right through Government, right through the judiciary'.
