Boris Johnson knocks back Nigel Farage’s election pact

"I left the Labour Party to shine a spotlight on the disgrace it's become under his leadership because I regard myself as proper, decent, traditional Labour", Austin told MPs.

Johnson, who was a figurehead for the Vote Leave campaign in the 2016 referendum, when 52 percent of voters backed Brexit, has rejected opposition complaints that he was undemocratically denying parliament the right to debate Brexit.

The Prime Minister himself furthermore brushed aside ideas that a deal could be carried out between the 2 men with a spokesperson having mentioned: 'The PM could no longer be doing a take care of Nigel Farage'.

Corbyn has said he wants an election and that Labour will then offer a referendum with both leave and remain options.

However, Johnson's opponents will not support an election until he has been forced to seek a Brexit delay on October 31, or passed a deal in the Commons.

Fresh divisions are set to open up within Labour after deputy leader Tom Watson called on the party to back a new Brexit referendum before a general election.

Can't we see that a yellow/Labour government aren't going to get a meaningful Brexit of any kind at all.

Corbyn has previously said that Labour is prioritising a general election and would make the commitment to a referendum with leave and remain options in its manifesto. "But I also say we are prepared for a disorderly Brexit", Merkel told parliament.

In a speech today in London, Mr Watson said a single-issue Brexit election may not break the deadlock in Parliament - something only a second referendum can achieve with certainty.

United Kingdom court rules Boris Johnson's suspension of Parliament unlawful
Independent former Welsh Conservative MP Guto Bebb said Boris Johnson should resign if he has misled the Queen. Legal expert David Allen Green said the court had effectively ruled the PM had deceived the Queen.

But Labour and other opposition parties failed to support Johnson's subsequent attempt to force an early general election, which under the Fixed-Term Parliaments Act must be approved by two-thirds of the House.

Mr Watson is now at loggerheads with most of the Shadow Cabinet.

"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".

Corbyn outlined a classic left-wing Labour pitch at the Trade Union Congress (TUC), reiterating his plan to nationalise Britain's rail network and utility companies, give workers seats on company boards and protect tenants against exploitative landlords.

Farage said contacts had been made with the Conservative Party about a possible non-aggression pact but that there had been no clear response yet.

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.

"Just as we worked throughout the summer to pass a law preventing no deal, so we will work each and every day we are shut down to enforce that law".

Mr Farage claimed that Dominic Cummings" opinion of the Brexit Party was "petty'.
