UK Labour leader to discuss election and Brexit tactics with allies

LONDON, Sept 6 (Reuters) - Britain’s opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn will hold a conference call with other opposition parties on Friday to discuss plans to prevent a no-deal Brexit and how they will vote on Monday on the government’s bid for an election.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson will ask parliament on Monday to approve a snap election, probably in mid October.

But opposition parties are worried an election in mid-October might still allow Johnson to lead the United Kingdom out of the EU without a deal. (Reporting by Kylie MacLellan, writing by Guy Faulconbridge; editing by Kate Holton)
