UK’s opposition Labour Party’s top legal policy chief Shami Chakrabarti told BBC Radio, Labour Party wants an election as soon as possible but the “sequencing” has to be right to ensure a no-deal Brexit was blocked first, per Reuters.
“We’ve got to get a locked-in guarantee that Britain would not crash out of the EU in an election campaign period,” Chakrabarti said.
Meanwhile, The Sun’s Tom Newton Dunn noted: "A senior Labour source close to [Jeremy] Corbyn tells me he still wants his MPs to vote for an October 14 general election tomorrow, but with a ‘mechanism’ attached to lock in an Article 50 extension to avoid No Deal. Is one actually possible?"
The GBP/USD pair is seen consolidating the sell-off just below the 1.20 handle, still down -0.60% on the day.
