Jeremy Corbyn told supporters he would challenge the Government 'all the way' over Europe - before later telling the Prime Minister to 'jog on'. 

Speaking at a raucous party rally in Liverpool on Saturday night, the Labour leader said his party would reject Prime Minister Boris Johnson's deal with the European Union as he mobilised for a general election.

And later tweeted: 'Jog on Boris Johnson with your daft ideas.'

It came just hours after The Commons voted 322 to 306 in favour of an amendment postponing a decision on the PM's deal, and activating the Benn Act - a Remainer law that compels him to send a letter by midnight asking Brussels for a delay.

Mr Corbyn said: 'And he came with his plan, well we've got answers to his plan for our relationship to Europe because that plan was all about thumping our workers' rights, taking away consumer protections, damaging our environment, damaging the Good Friday Agreement.

'But the real purpose behind it is, what they want for the future, which is, as I said in my speech today, is what he's done today, if he succeeds is fire the starting gun in a race to the bottom.

'We will challenge them all the way, in Parliament next week, we challenge them in crashing out of the EU and we as a movement will come together, those that voted leave or remain have all got a place in the Labour Party and the labour movement.

'What unites us is our determination for socialism.'
