UK: PM Johnson's Queen's Speech Labelled "Farce" by Corbyn

Labour party leader Jeremy Corbyn rejected British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Queen’s speech as a “farce” during a the House of Commons debate on Monday.

“Mr Speaker, there has never been such a farce as a government with a majority of minus 45 and a 100 per cent record of defeat in the House of Commons setting out a legislative agenda they know cannot be delivered in this Parliament,” Corbyn said.

The Labour leader went on denounce the UK government as having “failed” to deliver Brexit, adding that the only way to solve Brexit is to “let the people decide with the final say.”

“Freedom of movement has given opportunities to millions of British people to live, work and retire across Europe. And it has benefited our economy immensely, No responsible member would vote to rip that up, unless there was a proper plan in place,” he went on to say in reference to the UK PM’s proposal to end free movement.

During the debate the UK PM reiterated his pledge to leave the EU by October 31 and laid out his legislative plan for an “open, global and free-trading United Kingdom” after Brexit.

“Mr Speaker the destruction that Labour would do to business is I think the single gravest concern that this country faces. Far greater than any fears that they may have had about a no-deal Brexit,” he added.

Johnson also vowed during his speech that he would “do everything” to prevent a Labour government led by Corbyn.

Earlier on Monday the Queen’s speech at the state opening of Parliament stressed that delivering Brexit by October 31 is the government’s “priority” and that free movement will be replaced with a “fair, modern and global immigration system” after Brexit.
