Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn refuses to rule out a second Brexit referendum

Given that Labour secured 99 fewer seats than the Tories in 2015, when the polls were much closer, the scale of the challenge facing Mr Corbyn is clear.

"I don't play by their rules and if a Labour government is elected on 8 June we won't play by their rules either", he said to loud cheers from the audience gathered in Westminster on Thursday afternoon.

I've never been convinced that 5 years as opposition leader would lure Sadiq away from the mayoralty but whether you believe the theory or not, Labour's expected crushing at the forthcoming general election means Corbyn's likely to have departed long before Sadiq can get back into parliament.

Bookmaker Ladbrokes gives Labour 12-1 odds of winning the snap election called by May this week. The Conservatives now hold 330 of the 650 seats.

In a passionate speech targeting a "cosy cartel" of multinational corporations and rich individuals who dodged their taxes, he said he would not play by the rules "set by failed political and corporate elites". He said Labour respects the referendum result but will ensure EU-enforced workplace rights and environmental protections are not watered down after Britain leaves the bloc.

"We haven't threatened to turn Britain into an offshore tax haven on the shores of Europe, undermining the European economy".

The party's policies, including those on Brexit, will be laid out in further detail in Labour's manifesto in the coming weeks.

Suggestions that Mr Corbyn would require MPs to face a "trigger ballot" of constituency members to secure their place as candidates were scotched, as a senior aide confirmed that all sitting MPs will be deemed to be automatically reselected.

The intention is to tie the hands of europhile Conservative MPs who might challenge her in the months ahead, the tabloid said.

The latest Press Association analysis of opinion polls put the Tories on 43%, a 17-point lead over Labour's 26%.

A Labour Party spokesman had also told the Daily Mirror: "Our position hasn't changed and we have laid out our six tests for any Brexit deal".

Meanwhile one of the Tories' most controversial characters, Douglas Carswell, who defected to the anti-EU UK Independence Party (UKIP) in 2014, announced he would not run again.
