‘Is Corbyn awake yet?’ Labour leader finally responds to Johnson Brexit plan – ‘Appalled!’ | Politics | News

The Labour leader, who has joined forces with other opposition party leaders in a bid to thwart a no deal Brexit, warned the Prime Minister’s move was also a “threat to democracy”. He said: “I am appalled at the recklessness of Johnson’s Government, which talks about sovereignty and yet is seeking to suspend parliament to avoid scrutiny of its plans for a reckless no deal Brexit.”

He continued: “This is an outrage and a threat to our democracy.

“That is why Labour has been working across Parliament to hold this reckless Government to account and prevent a disastrous no deal which Parliament has already ruled out.

“If Johnson has confidence in his plans he should put them to the people in a general election or public vote.”

Labour’s deputy leader Tom Watson beat Mr Corbyn to the punch when he tweeted: “This action is an utterly scandalous affront to our democracy. We cannot let this happen.”

Twitter user Michael Mallinson replied: “Stop squawking and do something about it then, Mr Watson. Is Mr Corbyn awake yet?”
