MPs to vote on May's Brexit deal on 11 December

Jeremy Corbyn poked fun at Theresa May for claiming that her Brexit deal "is the best deal available for jobs and the economy, that allows us to honour the referendum, and realise the opportunities of Brexit".

He went on: "Any debate must involve someone who believes in Brexit & the British people being fully in control of their laws, rather than giving back control to the European Union like the PM's deal".

"The British Parliament nearly certainly has a coalition of the willing that would work round a customs union, work round single market standards of the kind that Labour has advocated but so have a broad swathe of other parties including a large number of Conservatives", he said.

A number of dates were being discussed, including December 9, which could leave the leaders in a ratings battle with the final of reality television programme I'm A Celebrity.Get Me Out Of Here!.

May added: "Exactly how it might be done, if he takes it up, would be a matter for the broadcasters to determine.

When MPs debate the deal, let's protest outside Parliament-and demand they vote the deal down", reads one protest event page, which tentatively set demonstrations for December 11.

"We think that as a bare minimum young people should get a vote on this deal".

"I have a clear deal that I believe is in the interests of the United Kingdom and I think it is right for people to hear what Jeremy Corbyn's views are as those have been a little uncertain recently about exactly where he stands".

She told the SNP's Philippa Whitford: "I should not have used that language in that speech".

If there is not an election, Labour is keeping all options open including the possibility of another referendum on Brexit, although it has not specified what question would be asked.

"I believe we have a good deal for the United Kingdom, it delivers on the Brexit vote, it protects people's jobs. I believe in a better way forward".

She said: "The danger is a debate between Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn is simply a debate between two versions of Brexit which are only really different around the margins".

And Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon tweeted that she would be "up for a full leaders" debate on the "deal'". "I don't think they meant that".

41% say they would like politicians to vote for the PM's deal and 38% want them to vote against.

Referencing Mr Corbyn's warnings over fishing and Gibraltar, she said: "It's important to recall that if we were in the backstop we would be outside the Common Fisheries Policy and we would be deciding who has access to fish in our waters".
