In a public attack on his brother’s political party, Piers Corbyn said Labour had not “respected the result of the referendum” and gave his support to Tory leader Boris Johnson. Piers has said that sticking to the October 31 deadline is the “only way” to get a good deal. His comments came after Remain supporting MPs, supported by the Labour Party, pushed through a law to prevent the UK from leaving the bloc without a deal on October 31.
The 72-year-old Brexiteer took to twitter and said: “What the ** are Labour playing at? One clause in Benn’s bill means that we can only leave EU if EU agree.
“Five milllion leavers voted Labour at last election I don’t think they’ll vote Labour next time, so much for labour respecting the result of 2016 ref.”
Last week, Piers retweeted a Leave.Eu video of Labour Eurosceptic Kate Hooey – where the Vauxhall MP praises the Brexit leadership of Boris Johnson.
In the video Hooey says: “We’ve finally got a PM who will stand up to the EU.
“I’ll use my vote in parliament to help the 17.4m who voted Leave & to stop parliament’s coup!”
He also retweeted another Leave.EU graphic calling for “a Boris/Nigel pact to crush the Brexit wreckers and secure national independence!’
He tweeted: “The majority voted Leave without a deal, if there wasn’t a deal.
“Campaigns against #NoDeal are a cover to trash the historic democratic mandate to #Leave.

The Tories do not have a majority in the Commons and there are concerns they could not win any snap election.
Speaking on the Andrew Marr show, Mr Javid said: “We absolutely now need an election.
“It is being forced on us because Parliament is trying to kneecap these negotiations.”
Writing in the Sunday Telegraph, Mr Farage said: “Johnson should cast his mind back to the European elections in May, in which his party came fifth, and ask himself: does he wasn’t the Tories to find themselves in a similarly disastrous position when the results of the next general election come in, or does he want to sign a non-aggression pact with me and return to Downing Street?”
Mr Farage claims his deal would enable the government to have a majority of more than 100.
Meanwhile, the Labour leader was mocked on social media after the Labour leader told voters he was “ready” for a general election despite not voting in favour of the Government motion to trigger an early vote in the Commons this week.
