United Kingdom government must spell out Brexit plans -opposition Labour


A 7.30am meeting of Labour’s ruling body this morning at the party conference in Liverpool agreed that a package of devolution reforms giving the Scottish and Welsh leaders a place on the committee should go to a conference vote.

He will promise to end the undercutting of wages through exploitation of cheap foreign labour and give extra financial support to areas struggling to absorb large numbers of new arrivals.

Last month at a packed meeting at the Prince of Wales hotel in the town, party members in Southport gave Mr Corbyn 107 votes with challenger Owen Smith receiving 27.

Jeremy Corbyn has vowed to unite Labour after he was re-elected as the party’s leader on Saturday – but again refused to rule out the deselection of Labour MPs once the new boundary map comes into play.

Alexander said she isn’t prepared to return to Corbyn’s shadow cabinet.

Corbyn’s speech follows comments by former shadow work and pensions secretary Rachel Reeves, in which she suggested that there would be riots, if immigration wasn’t reduced.

Some have put Labour as far as 14 points behind the Conservative Government – a division which would translate into a huge House of Commons majority for the Tories in a General Election.

Harmony and unity within the Labour Party lasted for a matter of hours before fresh rumours began swirling.

Among the most contentious elements was a change that means Carwyn Jones, the Welsh Labour leader, and Kezia Dugdale, the Scottish Labour leader, will each be able to choose a member of their frontbenches to join the NEC.

Meanwhile, the Labour leader attended a rally of the Momentum organisation set up by his supporters, which is holding a parallel festival near the Liverpool conference with events including film screenings, debates and “poems for Corbyn”.

The main opposition Labour party called on the government to spell out its strategy for negotiating Britain’s exit from the European Union, saying it had no brief to “do whatever the hell they like with our country”.

“Anything else is a luxury that the millions of people who depend on Labour can not afford”.

Putting his party on an election footing, he will say: “Whatever the Prime Minister says about snap elections, there is every chance that Theresa May will cut and run for an early election”.

Labour was against Brexit and when the result of the June 23 referendum came in, shocked MPs launched a coup against leftist leader Corbyn, who they accused of a lacklustre campaign.

His address will also urge Labour members to end what he calls the “trench warfare” of this summer so it can be ready for a general election by next year.
