Jeremy Corbyn vows to challenge Boris Johnson on TUESDAY

Jeremy Corbyn said on Thursday (August 29) that politicians would try to stop Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s planned extended shutdown of parliament as soon as they returned to Westminster after their summer break.

Corbyn said Johnson’s move to suspend parliament for almost a month was a “smash and grab raid” against Britain’s democracy.

“What we’re going to do is try to politically stop him (Johnson) on Tuesday with a parliamentary process in order to legislate to prevent a no deal Brexit and also to try and prevent him shutting down Parliament during this utterly crucial period,” Corbyn told reporters.

Corbyn added that a second referendum on Scottish independence – a key goal of potential allies in the Scottish National Party – would not be an early priority for Labour if it entered government.
