Jeremy Corbyn rules out holding second Brexit referendum

20 April 2017, 07:19 | Erica Roy

An aide would not confirm whether Mr Corbyn favoured trigger ballots, saying only that there had been "a discussion" at the party's highest levels.

He said: "There will be no coalition deal with the SNP and a Labour government".

SNP Westminster Leader Angus Robertson told Mrs May most people realised she had taken the decision "because of the woeful state of the Labour party".

Meanwhile, the Prime Minister said that Labour would "bankrupt" the United Kingdom and only her Conservative government could ensure a successful Brexit deal and promote a "strong economy and defence".

Shadow chancellor John McDonnell said there was a "great atmosphere" in the packed meeting, while deputy leader Tom Watson described it as "very buoyant". "This can only mean more uncertainty for Britain, more risk and a future that is less secure", said Patrick McLoughlin, the Tory party chairman. "Every Conservative vote will strengthen the UK's negotiating position in Europe - every vote for another party will weaken it".

Labour's flimsy Brexit arguments and inability to get their views across to voters had "provided a concession of both votes and credibility to Ukip", according to Mr Marshall-Andrews.

"We have consistently demanded a meaningful vote in Parliament and, as the government, will bring the deal we negotiate to Parliament before it is finalised to ensure democratic accountability".

"He will say: "[The] rules have created a cosy cartel, which rigs the system in favour of a few powerful and wealthy individuals and corporations.

But analysts have said the chances are weak - chiefly because the Liberal Democrats would probably not want to ally with a struggling Labour Party, which is also deeply divided over its current leader.


Setting the tone for the next seven weeks, the Prime Minister picked out every one of Jeremy Corbyn's unhappy backbenchers and reminded them - and the country - of Labour's divisions.

Controversial business figures such as Mike Ashley of Sports Direct, Sir Philip Green, Southern Rail and tax-avoiding multinationals should be "worried" about the prospect of a Labour government, said Mr Corbyn.

"It is wealth that should belong to the majority and not a tiny minority".

"Or are we going to be a country that works to make the rich even richer?"

Having secured his own personal landslide last May, it's likely this group of Labour marginal MPs will lean heavily on Sadiq Khan to help shore up their support and save their seats.

"They are yesterday's rules, set by failed political and corporate elites we should be consigning to the past".

Despite a new opinion poll putting Labour as many as 24 points behind the Tories, he insisted the election result was not a "foregone conclusion", declaring: "Things can, and they will, change".

Speaking at Prime Minster's Questions, she added: "I will be asking the British people for a mandate to complete Brexit and to make a success of it".

But Ford said that votes for the Liberal Democrats could draw support away from Labour and ultimately boost May's Conservatives.
