Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the British opposition Labor Party, said on Monday that his party would do everything possible to prevent his country’s exit from the European Union without an agreement, after parliament returns to work on Tuesday.

Members of parliament opposed to a possible exit on October 31, without interim arrangements, are working on plans to enact legislation that would force Prime Minister Boris Johnson to rule out leaving the EU bloc without agreement.

Earlier, Johnson said his efforts to conclude a new pullout deal with the EU will be hampered by the parliament’s attempt to prevent an exit without an agreement.

According to excerpts from a speech in Salford, northern England, Jeremy Corbyn will say Johnson’s move to suspend parliament is “an attack on democracy that will meet resistance”.

According to the excerpts, the shadow government will meet on Monday to finalize plans to prevent a catastrophe without an agreement before parliament returns, tomorrow. “We are working with other parties to do everything necessary to keep our country from the brink”, Corbyn said.

Johnson told the Sunday Times that deputies had the option of either standing with Jeremy Corbyn and those who want to annul the referendum and those who want to abolish the democratic rule of the people or with who wants to implement the mandate of the people and focus very carefully, such as laser on the local agenda.

Corbyn, however, will say in his speech that the battle to prevent an exit without an agreement is not a struggle between those who want to leave the EU and those who want to stay in it, but rather “a multitude, fight against a few who want to hijack the outcome of the referendum to shift more power and wealth towards those on top”.

The Labor Party said the threat of a deal without agreement added to what it said was already a damage to industry from nine years of Conservative rule.

The government said Corbyn offered only “further delay and uncertainty.

“Only Boris Johnson and the Conservatives can provide the leadership that Britain needs and get out of the EU by October 31, whatever the circumstances and bring about the change for which the British people voted,” said Conservative Party Vice President Paul Scully.

Labor Party spokesman Claire Starmer on the issue of Brexit said on Sunday that the party’s plan, to be published on Tuesday, had one “very simple” goal: to prevent Johnson from getting the UK out of the EU without an agreement, and if so required to force him to extend the deadline for the exit.

Former Secretary Roy Stewart told Sky News on Sunday that about a dozen Conservative lawmakers might support the Labor initiative.

David Jock, another former minister, said Johnson would meet some rebels from his party on Monday to discuss his efforts to reach an agreement on the withdrawal.

Jock told Sky News that he was willing to violate the party’s commitment to the Conservatives to prevent an exit without agreement.
