Labour delegates vote in favour of making second Brexit referendum an option

Tom Watson backed the plan but Jeremy Corbyn supporters became concerned it could be used to undermine him

He said: "If you deliver a deal that includes a customs union and no hard border in Ireland, if you protect jobs, people's rights at work and environmental standards, then we will support that sensible deal".

If not, Mr Corbyn said Mrs May needed to "make way for a party that can".

Britain's main opposition party has voted to keep open the option of a second referendum on the UK's membership of the European Union. In his party conference speech, the shadow Brexit secretary said all options should be kept on the table, including a so-called People's Vote, to "stop a destructive Tory Brexit".

But with Jeremy Corbyn as leader, she says she has "never been prouder" to be a Labour member - something she has written about in her poems, including "A Love Letter to Jeremy Corbyn". But no one can respect the conduct of the government since that vote took place.

Shadow chancellor John McDonnell said he thought any vote should be on the terms of a Brexit deal rather than on remaining in the EU.

Workers in large United Kingdom businesses would get the right to elect a third of corporate board seats, he said, and one tenth of company equity would be put into "ownership funds" paying dividends as handouts to employees and in tax to the government.

Sons of Anarchy actor Paul John Vasquez dies at 48
He is the second actor from the long-running drama series to die in recent months, after Alan O'Neill died in June age 47. The TV star appeared in two episodes of Sons of Anarchy in 2011 where he starred as Angel Ganz.

"Ten years ago this month, the whole edifice of greed-is-good, deregulated financial capitalism. came crashing to earth, with devastating consequences", he is due to say.

"The old way of running things isn't working any more", he said.

"That's why Labour is offering a radical plan to rebuild and transform Britain".

Corbyn is due to use his speech to promise 400,000 jobs in the green-energy sector to meet low-carbon targets.

She said Labour should then go to Brussels and say: "The grown-ups are here now".

Corbyn's speech was also notable for his accepting, without his previous hedging, that evidence "points clearly to the Russian state" being responsible for the deadly deployment of a toxic chemical in Salisbury in the attempted murder of a former spy.
