Theresa May rules out an autumn general election before Brexit

EU gives Britain two months to pay €2.7bn over China customs fraud

Labor's Brexit spokesman Keir Starmer said in an interview on the sideline of the conference that the co-called Chequers blueprint which charts British Prime Minister Theresa May's plans for a deal with Brussels will nearly certainly fail conditions laid down by Labor.

If EU and Britain agree on a deal, it must be approved by individual nations before Britain leaves. The math on the United Kingdom vote looks ominous for May's government, because it lacks an overall majority.

"It is inconceivable that we should crash out of Europe with no deal - that would be a national disaster".

Labour shadow Brexit secretary Keir Starmer opens a debate on Brexit during the Labour Party's annual conference.

More than 100 constituency parties tabled motions calling for a second referendum, and thousands of People's Vote supporters marched through Liverpool to intensify pressure on Mr Corbyn.

"Nobody is ruling out remain as an option", he added, in remarks that were not included in the text of his speech released by the Labour Party.

But with May's plan for maintaining close ties with the European Union for trade in goods facing opposition from her own lawmakers, Labour could play a decisive role in whether any Brexit deal is approved by parliament.

"I think that if we can't get a negotiated deal, that the Prime Minister brings back through Parliament, then I think that we're in completely uncharted territory".

The Prime Minister moved to scotch suggestions of a November poll after reports that Downing Street officials had war-gamed a winter vote.




"I don't know whether Article 50 will have to be extended or not", he said.

This was a clear contradiction of John McDonnell, the Shadow Chancellor, who appeared to suggest earlier in the week that any referendum choice should be between any agreement that Mrs May strikes with the European Union or no deal.

In addition, the party has been thrown into disarray during the conference with conflicting messages from senior figures whether a party-backed "People's Vote" on the terms of the government's exit agreement with the European Union would include an option to Remain in the European Union - effectively making it a second referendum in all but name. An EU summit next month is seen as a make-or-break moment for a Brexit deal.

If she can't get a deal, her government could collapse, potentially leaving Labour with a big opportunity.

The U.S. Federal Reserve is expected to raise interest rates for the third time this year later on Wednesday, and investors will be looking for clues as to whether the central bank will ramp up the pace of policy tightening following signs of an acceleration in U.S. economic growth.

Labour would also vote down a "vague" deal, a so-called "blind Brexit" that did not spell out details of the future relationship.

Her Tory colleague, Brexiteer Nadine Dorries, said the PM should step down as she had become "handcuffed" to her Chequers Plan and was not spelling out the benefits of Brexit.

Starmer has said a referendum to reverse Brexit must be an "option", but Corbyn's position is less clear.
