Jo Swinson: Clarke and Harman open to leading emergency government

"Johnson is expected to tell them that they have two months to agree a deal acceptable to the cabinet and parliament, without which the United Kingdom will exit without an agreement on Halloween", the Sunday Telegraph newspaper wrote.

He is expected to tell the leaders that the UK Parliament can not and will not change the outcome of the 2016 referendum and insist that there must be a new deal to replace his predecessor Theresa May's Withdrawal Agreement - which was defeated three times by MPs - if the country was to leave the European Union with a deal.

The Labour leader said the electoral process in the last general election needed to be respected, and that it should be the opposition who are invited to form a government if a no-confidence motion in Boris Johnson's administration succeeds.

"We've got to prepare for no deal".

The UK will be hit with food, fuel and medicine shortages, a three-month period of chaos at its ports and a hard border in Ireland in a no-deal Brexit, leaked government documents have revealed. Prime Minister Boris Johnson's office said it did not comment on leaked documents.

"I am very happy to cooperate with any parliamentary colleagues - including Jeremy Corbyn - in trying to prevent a no-deal Brexit and I think that there is quite a considerable head of steam growing up to try to make sure that no-deal doesn't occur", he explained.

But a senior Tory MP now says he won't back the plan because he doesn't think Corbyn can command a majority.

Meanwhile, the Mail on Sunday reported that Mr Johnson has accused former chancellor Philip Hammond of "gravely damaging" the national interest with his bids to frustrate Brexit.

In an effort to prepare the country, Britain said will be spending 6.3 billion pounds ($7.7bn) to prepare for a no-deal exit, including 4.2 billion ($5.1bn) pounds of funding for this financial year.

Brexit minister Stephen Barclay said on Twitter he had signed a piece of legislation which set in stone the repeal of the 1972 European Communities act - the laws which made Britain a member of the organisation now known as the EU.

"I don't see that as a way forward".

He told the BBC: "The principle is that the Labour Party is the main opposition party, we've an aspiration to go into government.We are ready to serve".
