Could Corbyn lead an anti-no deal government?

Could Corbyn lead an anti-no deal government?

The Labour leader issued a plan to stop a no-deal Brexit. "I would expect there are people in his own party and indeed the necessary Conservative backbenchers who would be unwilling to support him".

We are facing a national crisis, we may need an emergency government to resolve it.

"It is not even certain that he would secure all the votes of Labour MPs".

Ms Swinson has come under pressure from other opposition leaders, including SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon, to rethink her rejection of Mr Corbyn's plan.

Even the most vehement remainer MPs outside Labour would baulk at the idea of giving him a short term tenancy at Downing Street as the leader of a national government.

Ms Swinson said she has spoken to her favoured candidates - the Father and Mother of the House - and won their assurances that they are ready to "put public duty first" to "stop us driving off that cliff".

Jo Swinson, the leader of the Liberal Democrats in the United Kingdom has said Conservative MP Ken Clarke and Labour MP Harriet Harman have both said they would be willing to lead an emergency government to halt a no-deal Brexit.

But the reaction was mixed, with the five-strong Independent Group for Change flatly rejecting it.

She is due to set out her own proposal to work with other parties to block a no-deal Brexit today.

And Mr Corbyn appeared to have convinced some of his opponents within his party on the basis of blocking no-deal.

While the political turmoil of the previous year has led to an unprecedented level of cross-party cooperation, many in Johnson's Conservative Party and others would still find it hard to vote for Corbyn. Hammond told the BBC that Johnson had moved from a tough negotiating stance to a "wrecking" one by insisting on changes to the withdrawal agreement between Britain and the European Union that the bloc would not accept.

Mr Corbyn announced the plan in a letter on Wednesday to opposition leaders and Tory MPs Dominic Grieve, Sir Oliver Letwin and Dame Caroline.

It also featured Dame Caroline's name, despite her clear opposition to a Corbyn government.

When asked if he would support a government led by Jeremy Corbyn, Mr Bebb said: "I think there are other alternatives that are open to us".

Speaking during a Facebook event hosted at Downing Street, Johnson said, "There's a awful kind of collaboration as it were, going on between people who think they can block Brexit in Parliament and our European friends".

Swinson said a more centrist politician such as the Conservative's Ken Clarke or Labour's Harriet Harman could be capable of commanding a majority across the House to navigate the country through Brexit.

Welsh Conservative reaction to Mr Corbyn's letter was scornful, with Monmouth MP David TC Davies tweeting that the plan was like "a coup d'etat of the sort favoured by Marxist dictators in banana republics from whom he draws inspiration".
