    Britain’s Labour Party will oppose an austerity budget that the government would propose in case the country backs a so-called Brexit after the vote on June 23, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said Wednesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — UK nationals are set to vote on June 23 in a referendum on the country's EU membership after Prime Minister David Cameron and the leaders of 27 EU member states agreed in February to grant the United Kingdom a special status within the bloc.

    "We would oppose any post-Brexit austerity budget just as we have opposed the austerity budget put forward by this government," Corbyn told the parliament.
