Brexit Party MEP vows to 'DESTROY' Jeremy Corbyn after Labour's Brexit betrayal

BREXIT PARTY MEP Martin Daubney pledged to help "destroy" Jeremy Corbyn for "betraying" the vote of millions of Labour Party supporters who backed Brexit.

The Brexit Party MEP insisted the Labour Party would suffer severe losses across the UK for their "betrayal" of traditional voters who backed Brexit. Mr Daubney said he is ready to stand to represent voters in the "Midlands, North and Wales". Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn failed with his campaign to stop a no deal Brexit. Responding to a colleague who compared Boris Johnson to a dictator, the Brexit Party politician said: "As for the ludicrous assumption that Britain operates under a dictator – dictators don’t offer general elections, do they?

"When they do offer general elections, you don’t accept them because you know Corbyn and Labour would be obliterated in the Midlands, North and Wales.

"Especially in Ashfield, where I intend to stand and help destroy Jeremy Corbyn and the ruthless mess he’s left."

Mr Daubney continued: "He’s abandoned the working classes, 70 percent of people in Ashfield voted to leave.

"Corbyn doesn’t care about them, doesn’t care about this house, doesn’t care about the British voice."

The scathing remarks came as Mr Daubney hit back at fellow MEPs who spent a three-hour debate on the state of Brexit negotiations expressing their regrets at Britain's decision to leave the European Union.

He continued: "It’s wonderful to see a few of the British MEPs turning up for the vote earlier. Where were they for the entire debate? Probably in the bar having croissants.

"The rest of it has been a blizzard of lies, smears, half-truths and blatant misrepresentations."

Mr Daubney added: "This Parliament does not understand the British people, it does not represent the British people and will not stop the voices of 17.4 million people from being heard. We are leaving."

The Prime Minister attempted to trigger a general election twice but was rebuked both times as Labour whipped its MPs to abstain from the vote.

Mr Johnson was seeking to reinforce his mandate to deliver on Brexit after Parliament passed a new law which would force him to request a new extension should no deal be secured at the next EU Summit on October 17.

Despite the law now being in place, the Prime Minister repeatedly signalled he would not be willing to implement it – going as far as to say he would prefer to be found "dead in a ditch" rather than ask for a delay.

Following a meeting with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and EU chief negotiator Michel Barnier on Monday, Mr Johnson explained that while negotiations are still ongoing, the UK will still leave the EU on Halloween and he will not be requesting a third extension.

The Prime Minister said: "Our first priority, if I may say so, just to try and look on the bright side for a second or two, is to come out with a deal and that's what we're working to achieve. And I think we have every prospect of doing that.

"What we're going to do is work very hard to get a deal that will allow us to come out.

“I see no point whatever in staying on in the EU beyond 31 October and we're going to come out."

He added: “And actually that is what our friends and partners in the EU would like too. And I think that they've had a bellyful of all this stuff.

“You know they want to develop a new relationship with the UK. They're fed up with these endless negotiations, endless delays. They've now delayed twice before to achieve what is completely unclear to me.”
