UK opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn is set to deliver a key speech to delegates at the Labour Party’s annual conference this afternoon.

He is expected to call on Prime Minister Theresa May to end her government’s ‘Brexit bungling’, give up power and make way for his negotiators.
Corbyn is keen to press home his advantage over May, who is struggling to unite her party over Britain’s negotiations to leave the European Union and to keep her own position, under threat from some in the party who cannot forgive the loss of their parliamentary majority in a June election she called.
At the end of an upbeat four-day conference which cemented leftist Corbyn’s control over the party, the Labour leader will say the June vote had made his team of top advisers “a government-in-waiting”.
With Labour closing the gap in opinion polls to stand roughly level with the Conservatives, the party is within sight of winning an election – although the governing party has said it has no plans to call a vote anytime before 2022.
