Mr Corbyn said he was confident Labour would win the by-election and would follow that up with Labour MPs being elected in the area in the next General Election, added councillor Cooper. Cornbyn has also seen Labour become the biggest political party in Europe, approaching 600,000 members. Hours later the conference in Brighton voted not to choose Brexit as a debate.

As Corbyn was spelling out his vision in media interviews, Keir Starmer, Labour's shadow Brexit secretary was addressing a standing-room only meeting near the main conference hall.

Over the summer, Labour negotiated a united policy to stay in the single market for a transitional period of between two and four years. "We made that clear". "I think it's impossible for anyone to put an actual figure on that", Corbyn told the BBC.

"This would send a powerful message of solidarity to the rest of Europe, and to the millions of European Union and United Kingdom nationals living in limbo here and across the continent", they said, adding that they must go further than calling for a transition period.

JLM Parliamentary chair Luciana Berger MP said: "In the past few years JLM has gone from strength to strength, ensuring that the Jewish community is not just welcome in the Labour Party, but celebrated for our contribution. He would backtrack on Brexit and fail to take the balanced approach on the economy that this country needs - and it would be ordinary working people that pay the price".
