JEREMY CORBYN said today that he is seeking a general election to reunite a divided Britain and renegotiate a Brexit deal, as opposed to a second referendum.

He also warned that Theresa May faces a vote of no confidence in her government “soon” if, as expected, her Withdrawal Agreement is rejected in a parliamentary vote due tomorrow.

Article 50 may have to be extended if his party came into power to allow for Ms May’s unpopular deal to be renegotiated, the Labour leader said on BBC1’s Andrew Marr Show.

He said: “Clearly, if Theresa May’s deal is voted down, clearly, if a general election takes place and a Labour government comes in — an election would take place February, March time — clearly, there’s only a few weeks between that and the leave date; there would have to be time for those negotiations.”

“My own view is I would rather get a negotiated deal now,” he also said.

Asked when Labour would table a motion of no confidence, Mr Corbyn said it would be “at a time of our choosing, but it’s going to be soon, don’t worry about it.”

He's only saying that coz the polls are in and support for leave is greater than the last referendum he knows the remain vote would make him look stupid and on the wrong side, typical politician stance.
He wants a general election so he can take over brexit but here's the thing only the Tory's can ask for article 50 to be extended and if they think there's a chance labour could gain control over brexit she just wont extend it and there's zero chance we can have a general election before times up in march.
May will never hand over control of brexit over to labour if she has any sense but then again it is Theresa May we are talking about she's f***ed up everything she's tried to do
But by this point all the Tory's need to do is play for time to push through a no deal brexit not hard to do
