Corbyn: Next week is ‘last chance’ to stop no-deal Brexit
Jeremy Corbyn has said next week is the “last chance” to stop a no-deal Brexit.
The Labour leader was at the Alive and Kicking Club in Springburn, Glasgow, for an event on Saturday as part of a three-day visit to Scotland.
He was asked about comments made by Sir Keir Starmer about next week being the final opportunity to stop the UK from leaving the EU without an agreement.
Mr Corbyn added: “I’m sure he is correct because Keir has worked extremely hard as our shadow Brexit secretary.
“Yes, it is the chance and we will do absolutely everything we can to prevent a no-deal Brexit and the Prime Minister taking us into the hands of Donald Trump and a trade deal with the USA.
“That is the real agenda of the Prime Minister.
“There is a lot of work being done in preparation for next Tuesday.”
Parliament reconvenes after the summer recess on Tuesday.
Protesters are expected to flood the streets of Britain this weekend in response to the Prime Minister’s controversial plan to prorogue Parliament.
Organisers are hoping hundreds of thousands of people will take to the streets on Saturday after demonstrations began to flare up on Friday evening.
Anti-Brexit campaign group Another Europe Is Possible has planned 32 #StopTheCoup protests to take place in England, Scotland and Wales.
There is a similar demonstration taking place in Glasgow’s George Square.
Mr Corbyn also did an impression of Boris Johnson as he mocked the Prime Minister for lacking detail in his announcements.
We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support
The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.
The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.
So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
