Asked for his opinion on West Bromwich East MP Mr Watson's call for a new Brexit poll before an election, he said: "It's Tom's view".

Farage warned that the Brexit Party - the biggest gainers in May's European Parliament election - would win seats in the Midlands, south Wales and northern England, disrupting any election for both the Conservatives and Labour parties. I don't accept it, I don't agree with it.

Speaking in Brighton, Corbyn said: "Congress, the coming general election will be a chance for a real change of direction".

Nigel Farage's Brexit party comprehensively defeated the Conservatives in the April elections and look set to inflict more damage in the forthcoming general election if Boris Johnson walks back on his promise to deliver Brexit "do or die", but the Tory leader's team has rejected the offer of a truce out of hand, throwing in an insult for good measure. "A general election could fail to solve Brexit chaos". "If we stand against them, they can not win a majority".

The deputy leader denied he is making a run for Mr Corbyn's position, saying: "It isn't a job application that I gave today and nor is it a resignation".

Parliament is now prorogued for five weeks and is not scheduled to return until 14 October, when there will be a Queen's Speech outlining Mr Johnson's legislative plans.

Labour's manifesto will promise a referendum on Brexit, with a choice between Remain and a renegotiated Withdrawal Agreement.

Mr Farage said his party and the Conservatives should make a deal and "together we would be unstoppable". He may have to give MPs the freedom to choose their side or risk opening up even worse divides. "And in that election we will commit to a public vote with a credible option to leave (the EU) and the option to remain". "And then we need to move onto the wider issues that matter to so many people in our communities and across our country".
