Jeremy Corbyn met Ian Blackford, the Scottish nationalists' Westminster leader, yesterday to agree an election should only be held after Britain has secured another Brexit delay from the EU.

Mr Corbyn believes he can snare the Prime Minister by refusing Mr Johnson's preferred October 15 election date, forcing him to seek another delay to Brexit.

Brexit Means Another Fiery Week In Westminster. Here's What To Expect

Brexit Means Another Fiery Week In Westminster. Here's What To Expect Since the public voted to leave the EU three years ago, there have been plenty of dramatic weeks in parliament. But after Boris Johnson revealed shock plans last week to suspend (or ‘prorogue’) parliament, MPs’ return to Westminster on Tuesday after the summer recess is expected to mark the start of the mother of all showdowns.

Labour whips managed to hold down the number of rebels. Two Labour MPs – John Mann and Kate Hoey – voted with the government, while two others – Kevin Barron and Earlier on Tuesday, Corbyn suggested his party would back a general election – but only if it could also block a no - deal Brexit .

The Prime Minister is being frustrated by Mr Corbyn, who along with Mr Blackford, has repeatedly called for a general election over the last two years, only to back off with October 31 looming.

Mr Johnson is expected to go for broke on Monday, to call for a general election again after he was slapped down in the Commons this week.

Backbenchers are also agreed on this, not just because of the threat of No Deal, but also because recent polling shows Labour behind.

He is trailing behind Mr Johnson and one party source told The Telegraph: 'We know that Jeremy isn't polling brilliantly.'

The Labour leader originally planned to vote in favour of an election, once a law is in place forcing the Prime Minister to go to Brussels on October 19 to demand a three-month Brexit delay.

Mr McDonnell said the Labour leadership was in contact with legal experts, other opposition parties and the Parliamentary Labour Party about what to do and noted that 'people have got different views on this'.

'The problem that we have got is that we cannot at the moment have any confidence in Boris Johnson abiding by any commitment or deal that we could construct,' he told BBC Radio 4's Today programme.

'So, we are now consulting about whether it's better to go long, therefore, rather than to go short.'

A government source yesterday accused Mr Corbyn of 'rank hypocrisy' for blocking the election despite repeatedly calling for one.

In response to Downing Street's attack on 'cowardly' Mr Corbyn for blocking an early election, Mr McDonnell said: 'I wish he would put aside Donald Trump's script for a time and have a serious discussion.

'We want a general election as well but we want it in the interests of the country when we have prevented a no-deal Brexit, and on that basis we have got to determine the date.'

'That's one of the dilemmas we're facing,' he said. 'We're looking now at taking legal advice on how secure that Bill is, but we're also consulting the other opposition parties, and our own party on the date of a general election. We're desperate for a general election.'

A string of backbench Labour MPs ruled out backing a general election before the UK has agreed to extend the current Brexit deadline of October 31.

David Lammy, the MP for Tottenham in North London, said: 'I won't vote for an election unless it is guaranteed to happen after October 31st. We desperately need a Labour government, but the immediate priority is to stop No Deal.'

Former Labour leadership candidate Owen Smith, who represents Pontypridd in South Wales, added: 'We should refuse any election before October 31st, with a No Deal Brexit definitively ruled out.'

Ben Bradshaw, the MP for Exeter, Devon, said: 'Labour and the other opposition parties must not save him, but ensure an election is only called after October 31st, when he will have failed completely.'

Meanwhile Stockton South MP Paul Williams said: 'I won't be voting for a general election until after 31st October. Johnson is trying to trick Parliament into letting him crash out of the EU without a deal, whilst pretending he is negotiating.'

One senior Labour Remainer said even if Mr Corbyn orders MPs to back the motion calling for an early poll, few would do so.

'There is unanimity,' he said. 'We are resolute. Boris Johnson is saying don't worry, the Labour Party will cave... but we are not going to... The vast majority of all MPs, activists, they know Johnson's on the ropes and he's got to own his own mess.'
