Jeremy Corbyn is attacking Boris Johnson’s Brexit policy

The UK opposition Labour Party leader Corbyn is out on the wires now, via Reuters, looking to already push an election agenda.

The Brexit Party had offered to stay away from seats now held by a Conservative MP who voted against the Withdrawal Agreement three times and supports no deal.

"They will get the chance for a public vote, under a Labour government, to vote between Remain and a credible option that we will negotiate with the European Union".

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.

Asked about his deputy's comments, Mr Corbyn said on Wednesday: "It's Tom's view, I don't accept it and I don't agree with it".

United Kingdom workers will pay the price of a no-deal Brexit.

Mr Johnson has vowed to deliver Brexit "do or die" by the end of October, and if he fails to do so it remains likely the voters will seek to punish him at the polls, as they did in April when the Brexit Party came first in a national election after Theresa May failed to honour the March Brexit date as promised.

Dominic Cummings is not quite ready to bury the referendum hatchet, judging by the venomous briefing from "a senior Tory source" in response to the idea of the Tories striking a pact with the Brexit Party.

"We must unambiguously and unequivocally back remain", he said, adding that this is "not for electoral or tactical reasons, but because it is the right thing to do for the country at this time of greatest crisis since the second world war".

They have just met after a night of high drama in parliament.

The Court of Session in Edinburgh found ministers had stopped MPs from sitting for the "improper goal of stymying Parliament". He claimed Johnson's government is not serious about trying to get a Brexit deal with the EU.
