If Labour doesn't commit to remain during the election, then it hopes to be inoculated against the charge that it would waste time negotiating a Leave option that it would never endorse.

This implies they would wait until after the 31 October date when, under the new legislation, Mr Johnson should have requested another delay from the EU.

"This was an egregious case of a clear failure to comply with generally accepted standards of behavior of public authorities", concluded one judge, Philip Brodie, according to a summary of the court verdict.

Lewis told MPs: "Because [Jeremy Corbyn's] leadership has the led to the party of anti-racism and equality becoming the party of institutionalised antisemitism, so much so Mr Speaker that the majority of Jews in this country feel they would not be safe in the event of him becoming Prime Minister".

The prime minister would also have to support taking the United Kingdom out of the European Union without a reworked version of his predecessor Theresa May's withdrawal agreement, known as a no-deal Brexit. I don't accept it, I don't agree with it.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn yesterday outlined his desire for an election before a referendum to heal divisions and seek a fair solution for people who regard themselves as Remainers and Leavers.

Mr Farage claimed that Dominic Cummings" opinion of the Brexit Party was "petty'.

'I've said I reckon Boris could get a majority of 60/100 John Curtis independently says it would be at least 40, we have a solution here.

This is undoubtedly correct, and a barnstorming speech in which the Labour leader welcomed attacks by the Financial Times (which sniffed that his party was "determined to shift power away from bosses and landlords and to workers and tenants") and vowed to "unleash the biggest people-powered campaign we've ever seen" marks a welcome shift from the parliamentary games in which Labour has been complicit in recent weeks.

"A no-deal Brexit is really a Trump-deal Brexit", he said. "What we are trying to do is implement the result of the 2016 referendum".

"We're united around the idea there should be a referendum on any outcome this government puts forward".

But a general election is extremely unlikely until at least mid-November because of Mr Johnson's suspension of Parliament.

The PM is expected on Tuesday to continue to campaign for the election he is yet to have any success in triggering.

Deputy speaker Sir Lindsay Hoyle, who is also Labour, and veteran Tory MP Sir Edward Leigh earlier confirmed their intentions to stand.

Betty told Nigel Farage MPs must "stop whinging" and begin acting like adults as she warned she will not cast her vote for the Labour Party in the event of a snap election.
