UK PM's parliament plan is a threat to democracy - Labour's Corbyn

LONDON, Aug 28 (Reuters) - Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s plan to extend the period during which parliament does not normally sit shortly before Brexit is “an outrage and a threat to our democracy”, the leader of Britain’s main opposition Labour Party said on Wednesday.

“I am appalled at the recklessness of Johnson’s government, which talks about sovereignty and yet is seeking to suspend parliament to avoid scrutiny of its plans for a reckless No Deal Brexit. This is an outrage and a threat to our democracy,” Jeremy Corbyn said in a statement. (Reporting by Costas Pitas; editing by Stephen Addison)
