Labour leader Corbyn calls for election to end Brexit impasse

Wakefield, January 10

Britain’s main Opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn on Thursday called for a General Election to resolve the current deadlock in Parliament over Brexit, arguing that he would renegotiate the agreement with Brussels if he came to power.

“If the government cannot pass its most important legislation, then there must be a General Election at the earliest opportunity,” he said.
“To break the deadlock, an election is not only the most practical option, it is also the most democratic option.

“It would give the winning party a renewed mandate to negotiate a better deal for Britain and secure support for it in parliament and across the country,” he said.
The EU has ruled out any renegotiation of the deal.
