Britain was on course for a December election on Tuesday ­after the main opposition Labour Party said it would support Prime Minister Boris Johnson's plan.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said, "I have consistently said that we are ready for an election and our support is subject to a 'no deal' Brexit being off the table." He said the decision by EU leaders on Monday to delay Brexit to January 31, 2020 meant that "for the next three months, our condition of taking No Deal off the table has now been met."

"We will now launch the most ambitious and radical campaign for real change our country has ever seen," he said.
