1. Corbyn challenges May to call Brexit vote next week

Jeremy Corbyn, the Labour leader, has put out a statement about the result. He says:

Tonightís vote makes no difference to the lives of our people.

The prime minister has lost her majority in parliament, her government is in chaos and she is unable to deliver a Brexit deal that works for the country and puts jobs and the economy first.

Thatís why she pulled the vote on her botched Brexit deal this week and is trying to avoid bringing it back to parliament. Itís clear that she has not been able to negotiate the necessary changes in Europe.

She must now bring her dismal deal back to the House of Commons next week so parliament can take back control.

Labour is ready to govern for the whole country and deliver a deal that protects living standards and workersí rights.
