“We are united in our opposition to Boris Johnson’s plans for a No Deal” – Jeremy Corbyn
Jeremy Corbyn MP, Leader of the Labour Party, commenting after a meeting of cross-party MPs, said:
“Following a productive meeting of cross-party MPs this morning, we are united in our opposition to Boris Johnson’s plans for a No Deal.
“We are confident that the legislative route we have adopted has every chance of being successful, and we are working on ways in which we can prevent Boris Johnson manipulating an election to force a No Deal Brexit.
“Labour wants to prevent a No Deal Brexit, and to have a General Election, so we can end austerity and invest in our communities. I am confident we can have both, and we’ve been in discussions about a way to achieve this. We will continue to work across Parliament towards this goal and will have further meetings to this end in coming days.”
