Jeremy Corbyn: UK would be left at Trump's mercy in case of no-deal Brexit

Labour Party head Jeremy Corbyn has lashed out at Boris Johnson accusing the UK Prime Minister of "cosying up" to US President Donald Trump, ONA reports citing Sputnik.

The leader of the Labour Party is preparing to meet other opposition figures to discuss options to prevent a no-deal option if the UK leaves the European Union on 31 October.

Writing in the Independent, Corbyn stated that in case of a no-deal Brexit, the UK would end up being at the mercy of the US President Donald Trump.

According to Corbyn, as soon as the UK walks out of the bloc on Halloween with no deal, US corporations will take the opportunity to gain profits at the expense of the UK populace.

"The battle to stop a no-deal Brexit isn't a struggle between those who want to leave the EU and those who want continued membership," Mr Corbyn wrote. "It's a battle of the many against the few, who are hijacking the referendum result to shift even more power and wealth towards those at the top. That's why the Labour Party will do everything necessary to stop a no-deal bankers' Brexit."

The Labour leader underlined that he would take every measure at his disposal to prevent a no-deal outcome. He called on opposition parties to set up a working arrangement that would crumble Boris Johnson's plans.
