Jeremy Corbyn calls off Ghana trip

British Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has cancelled his four-day fact-finding trip to Ghana.

Corbyn has since invited key Tory rebels and party leaders to a meeting on stopping a no-deal Brexit, the Mirror reports.

He issued his invitation minutes after Boris Johnson arrived in Berlin for talks with German Chancellor Angela Merkel – to shouts of “stop Brexit!”.

Mr Johnson ramped up preparations for a no-deal exit on October 31 as talks with Ms Merkel were expected to end in deadlock.

But Mr Corbyn said in his letter: “The chaos and dislocation of Boris Johnson’s No Deal Brexit is real and threatening, as the government’s leaked Operation Yellowhammer dossier makes crystal clear.

“That’s why we must do everything we can to stop it.”

Full text of the letter
Further to our correspondence last week, I would like to invite you to a meeting to discuss all tactics available to prevent No Deal.

The country is heading into a constitutional and political storm, so it is vital that we meet urgently, before Parliament returns.

The chaos and dislocation of Boris Johnson’s No Deal Brexit is real and threatening, as the government’s leaked Operation Yellowhammer dossier makes crystal clear. That’s why we must do everything we can to stop it.

I hope you are able to attend the meeting, which we will hold in my office on Tuesday 27th August at 12pm.

Please confirm your attendance by email.

Yours sincerely,

Jeremy Corbyn
