Jeremy Corbyn draws battle lines for a future election in fiery speech

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

But a general election is extremely unlikely until at least mid-November because of Mr Johnson's suspension of Parliament.

In a speech in London, Mr Watson will say that while an autumn general election seems inevitable given Boris Johnson's loss of control in Parliament "that does not make it desirable".

The left-wing rebel told Parliament, as he was chided by former colleagues for his comments, that: "I think it's absolutely incredible [Labour] lecturing anybody else about observing the rule of law... the leader of the opposition, the shadow chancellor, who have spent their entire time in politics defending all sorts of extremists and in some cases terrorists and antisemites. A general election might well fail to solve this Brexit chaos", Watson will say.

Labour claims it will vote to allow Prime Minister Boris Johnson to bring about an election when he has delayed the October 31 Brexit deadline. He told delegates: "The next Labour government will bring about the biggest extension of rights for workers that our country has ever seen".

"No one can trust the word of a Prime Minister who is threatening to break the law to force through no deal".

'No one can trust the word of a prime minister who is threatening to break the law to force through no-deal, ' Corbyn stressed, after recalling that an exit from the European Union on bad terms would result in job losses, trigger food price increases and cause a shortage of medicines in the UK.


"It is important that voters who want to leave as well as those who want to remain can vote Labour". 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. "Many on the left of the party are suggesting that he wants to avoid an election at all costs out of fear that Jeremy may become prime minister".

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.

"In the next few weeks the Establishment will come after us with all they've got, because they know we're not afraid to take them on".

The Ministry will be responsible for transforming our workplaces by delivering a huge rollout of individual and collective rights at work and implementing enforcement powers to make these rights meaningful.

In a bombshell intervention deepening Labour's civil war over Europe, the deputy leader will today claim the 2016 vote was too long ago to be valid, and that a single-issue election would not break the Brexit deadlock.

These included continued customs union membership until the question of whether to leave could be settled at a general election; and closer alignment with the EU on workers' rights and environmental standards.
