Reiterating Labour's policy announced at their annual party conference in September, Mr Corbyn said today that a June deadline for fresh exit terms with the European Union and then putting it to a public vote would be "do-able" if Labour wins the December 12 election.

Labour has also signalled it will not stand in the way of a second Scottish independence referendum if Holyrood demands one.

"I am confident that such a deal can be secured and secured quickly".

"There was bags of time between that vote - where they first said it was good deal - and when they could've got us out on the 31st of October", stated Johnson.

The Brexit Party chief said Johnson's ruling Conservatives could pay dearly for rejecting his offer for a "non-aggression pact" in the December 12 snap election.

'He is trying to cash in the votes of millions who voted to leave the European Union, by buying political power for himself and then sell them out with another dose of austerity in the future.

"Cameron would never have got a majority if we hadn't taken four million votes in that election".

He urged Mr Corbyn to "come clean", and set out what his "supposed Brexit "deal" entails. "I have talked at length with Mike about his vision for our area and I know it's safe in his hands plus he is committed to delivering Brexit".

Milley could not confirm President Donald Trump's description of al-Baghdadi as "whimpering and crying" in his final moments. He added that it was Iran's help that pushed Baghdadi out of Iraq and into Idlib in Syria and allowed him to be located.

He added: 'Johnson and the Leave campaign promised to rebuild our NHS. Senior NHS managers have said that would mean "higher prices for medicines" which will "pass on costs to both patients and the NHS".

'If you look at how those corporations operate in the USA, they are absolutely ruthless.

What has the NHS got to do with Brexit?

Keeping Brexit tightly linked to the Tory threat to the NHS and Labour's intention to protect free healthcare at the point of use, Corbyn will say: "This threat to our NHS isn't a mistake".

Corbyn also attacked the potential lowering of food standards in a trade deal with the USA, which the government has repeatedly denied it would do. It's not happening by accident.

To accuse the Tories of planning a post-Brexit "race to the bottom" by scrapping all sorts of rules on the environment, food standards, consumer protection and tax avoidance. "That would be very bad for the United Kingdom because we can do much more business than the European Union, so I think Boris is going to get it right", Trump said while speaking on the White House South Lawn on Sunday. What Boris Johnson's Conservatives want is to hijack Brexit to unleash Thatcherism on steroids. The insurgent party, established in the Theresa May era to fight what it bills as a "betrayal of Brexit", is targeting both the opposition Labour Party in its Brexit-backing heartlands in Northern England as well as the Conservatives in their leave-supporting southern strongholds.

McAlpine has been picked to challenge Tory incumbent Robert Halfon, who has a majority of just over 7,000 votes.

Asked if he was going to stand in the forthcoming election, Mr Farage told the Andrew Marr Show on BBC One: "I've thought very hard about this - how do I serve the cause of Brexit best, because that's what I'm doing this for".
