British opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn says a national election takes priority over a new referendum on Brexit.
Mr Corbyn said on Thursday that Labour would vote against Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit deal next week and if parliament voted it down then there should be a national election.
"If a general election cannot be secured, then we will keep all options on the table, including the option of campaigning for a public vote," Mr Corbyn said in a speech in northern England.
