Mr Corbyn has said while an incoming Labour government would hold a new referendum - with Remain and a "credible" option for Leave on the ballot paper - he has yet to say which he would support.
Without an economic plan to help revive hard-up communities around the UK, Mr Johnson will struggle to win the mandate he feels he deserves - and so face little prospect of holding office in another five years' time.
"So a general election is coming".
Mr Farage says he will not field candidates in any of the Conservatives' existing seats and targets if, in return, the Tories stand aside in more than 80 Leave-voting constituencies where they are unlikely to win.
Speaking on the Andrew Neil show he said: 'It was tribal, party politics and I'm asking for whoever put that statement out, can't we rise above that?
Labour's controversial Deputy Leader has reignited conflict over the Labour Party's Brexit policy.
'He wants to stage a showdown over a no-deal Brexit that he can package as a battle between parliament and the people, ' Jeremy Corbyn said.
This is undoubtedly correct, and a barnstorming speech in which the Labour leader welcomed attacks by the Financial Times (which sniffed that his party was "determined to shift power away from bosses and landlords and to workers and tenants") and vowed to "unleash the biggest people-powered campaign we've ever seen" marks a welcome shift from the parliamentary games in which Labour has been complicit in recent weeks.
So, apart from his own scepticism towards an European Union that he believes needs reform, what is the thinking behind Jeremy Corbyn's position?
He also accused the PM of cosying up to US President Donald Trump to get a "one-sided" trade deal with the US which would damage employment rights, the NHS and United Kingdom industry.
Yesterday, Jeremy Corbyn met union leaders to seek a consensus that Labour continue backing a referendum giving the public the final say on Brexit when it is clear what that would involve.
"Very hard though it was, I and many others respected the result of the 2016 referendum for a long time", he said.
But a general election is extremely unlikely until at least mid-November because of Mr Johnson's suspension of Parliament.
They have just met after a night of high drama in parliament.
Johnson, who was a figurehead for the Vote Leave campaign in the 2016 referendum, when 52 percent of voters backed Brexit, has rejected opposition complaints that he was undemocratically denying parliament the right to debate Brexit.
The PM is expected on Tuesday to continue to campaign for the election he is yet to have any success in triggering.
He said he would consider a pact with Johnson's Conservatives ahead of a possible general election if Johnson agreed to press for a "clean break" Brexit.
