British opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn meets EU on Brexit

David Davis has backed proposals that would break a commitment to Brussels

On Brexit and the prospects of a General Election, Corbyn has said that Labour will vote against Theresa May's Chequers proposal if it forms the backbone of any final deal with the EU's 27 member states, and claimed that the prime minister would be forced to call a GE if she could not get it through parliament.

If EU and Britain agree on a deal, it must be approved by individual nations before Britain leaves. That infuriated Brexit-backers such as Farage and former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, who say it would leave the United Kingdom tethered to the bloc and unable to strike new trade deals around the world.

Corbyn, who told his party conference Wednesday that a no-deal Brexit would be a "national disaster", has nevertheless said his party will vote against any accord based on Prime Minister Theresa May's plan.

More than 100 constituency parties tabled motions calling for a second referendum, and thousands of People's Vote supporters marched through Liverpool to intensify pressure on Mr Corbyn.

"I believe the European Union to be a capitalist club that is for the few, not the many", the young socialist said, adapting Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn's party slogan, "For the many, not the few".

The latest motion says: "If we can not get a general election, Labor must support all options remaining on the table, including campaigning for a public vote".

CORBYN: If you can't negotiate that deal, then you need to make way for a party that can and will.

In a confident hour-long address to the party's annual conference in Liverpool, Mr Corbyn "reached out" to Mrs May, saying: "Brexit is about the future of our country and our vital interests".

She added that a second referendum was "hypothetical", adding: "What we have said is that, in a very extreme set of circumstances, nothing should be ruled out, and that includes a People's Vote".

He warned that as time runs out to get a Brexit deal, "companies are losing patience" and planning to relocate overseas.

After losing the Conservatives' overall majority in the House of Commons in the snap election which she called in 2017, Mrs May is generally thought to be wary of taking the risk of going to the country early again.

Macron's cabinet is holding meetings every two weeks to ensure practical preparations are in place should Britain leave the European Union without a post-Brexit agreement in place.

Some Labour MPs represent districts in Britain that voted decisively to leave the European Union in the 2016 referendum, and fear losing their seats if there is a general election.

Her Tory colleague, Brexiteer Nadine Dorries, said the PM should step down as she had become "handcuffed" to her Chequers Plan and was not spelling out the benefits of Brexit.

To everyone's surprise, John McDonnell had spent the year working against party members having their say and this week he brandished his Leave-leaning credentials, indicating that the party was reluctant to have a People's Vote and insinuating that Remain would not be on the ballot even if one did take place.
