Labour leader gets ahead of events following Supreme Court decision against Johnson’s unlawful proroguing of Parliament
Deputy leader Tom Watson’s speech has been removed from the Labour Party’s conference agenda so that leader Jeremy Corbyn can make his closing speech today and return to Parliament.
Labour sources say Corbyn is determined to be ahead of events following the Supreme Court’s decision this morning that Boris Johnson’s suspension of Parliament was unlawful.
Speaker John Bercow has called for Parliament to resume from tomorrow.
The developments mean that a mass walk-out from Watson’s speech this afternoon planned by conference delegates disgusted with Watson’s conduct will not now take place.
