World News: Britain's Labour unveils plans to create Ministry for Employment Rights

"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".

The 59-year-old, who announced on Sunday he would be standing down from the Commons after 18 years representing Bassetlaw, said: "That's not a good recipe for winning a General Election and in the North of England, Labour will pay a huge price".

"I was very moved by the passion of experienced health workers who care so deeply for the communities they serve, but who see first hand the damaging effects of austerity".

Addressing the Trade Union Congress in Brighton, after twice whipping his MPs not to support Boris Johnson's bid to trigger a snap general election, Corbyn said, "a general election is coming".

"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 will say.

'I want trade unionists going out on the streets to tell him we have a different agenda.

At a conference of union barons, the Labour leader insisted his party was "ready" and vowed to campaign for a second referendum.

Shadow Brexit secretary Keir Starmer will echo Corbyn's language about a "credible leave option", when he addresses the TUC on Wednesday. As the Prime Minister's top adviser reportedly said, the negotiations are "a sham".

"No one can trust the word of a Prime Minister who is threatening to break the law to force through no deal". It may be ancient history to some of Labour's young new recruits, but many people will never forget how they supported terrorists responsible for horrific carnage in a brutal civil war which saw people blown up in pubs, hotels, and shopping centres. Now Labour insists there should only be a vote if the number of potential outcomes are limited, preventing the British people from voting in a government the Labour leadership considers unacceptable. He often misses shadow cabinet these days.

Although the debate ended without a vote and was not attended by the Prime Minister it was targeting, the session had been called by Labour MPs alarmed at the possibility the Prime Minister might find a way around a law they had passed to ban a full Brexit, forcing the nation to delay its withdrawal from the European Union once again.

But, while Labour-affiliated unions would rather stay in the EU than have no deal, they believe a Labour government should offer voters a choice in a referendum between a negotiated deal and Remain.

There was disquiet among some around Corbyn that the chaotic events of the past week in parliament risked allowing Johnson to present the Labour leader as part of a Westminster cabal, trying to block Brexit. "Once we get out of here, there isn't any way to establishment-up Jeremy", one Labour source said. The consequences are stark for all workers, whether members of a trade union or not.
