British opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn said on Thursday (10 January) that a national election took priority over a new referendum on Brexit, writes Philip Noble.

Corbyn said Labour would vote against Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit deal next week and that if parliament voted it down then there should be a national election.

“If a general election cannot be secured, then we will keep all options on the table, including the option of campaigning for a public vote,� Corbyn said in a speech in northern England.

“But an election must be the priority. It is not only the most practical option, it is also the most democratic option.�
