Jo Swinson still prefers Clarke or Harman as interim PM despite pressure

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has hit back at leading Tory MPs orchestrating efforts to stop a no-deal Brexit who are refusing to back him as a caretaker prime minister to prevent the United Kingdom crashing out of the EU.

Mr Grieve also said he would be willing to bring down Mr Johnson's administration if he pursued a no-deal Brexit, but insisted he did not want to install Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn in Number 10.

Sir Davey replied by referring to Jo Swinson's suggestion that a government of national unity should be led by a senior parliamentarian such as Tory grandee Ken Clarke or Labour's Harriet Harman, notably two non-Lib Dem candidates. Even with people now intending to vote for those parties, the leaders aren't doing much better: 53 per cent of current Labour voters trust Corbyn most, 63 per cent of current Conservatives go for Johnson.

"Jeremy Corbyn believes that the people are the servants and politicians can cancel public votes they don't like".

Other independent MPs also came out swinging against the Labour leader.

But Ms Swinson called the idea "nonsense" and wants a less divisive figure to form a unity government, such as veteran MPs Ken Clarke or Harriet Harman.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn was accused of plotting a "desperate" coup against Boris Johnson's government.

"We face a national emergency, and parliament must now be recalled in August and sit permanently until October 31 so that the voices of the people can be heard, and that there can be proper scrutiny of your government", the letter said.

Pep Guardiola bemoans lack of VAR consistency after Spurs hold Manchester City
In the first half City, could also have easily been given a penalty when Lamela appeared to drag Rodri down in the Spurs box. The first season they finished second... they've always been there.

According to Daral Williams from Survation: "We can see that only 56 per cent of 2017 Conservative voters think Johnson would be more likely to act in Yorkshire's best interests; for Corbyn and 2017 Labour voters, it's only 43 per cent".

Guto Bebb has declared that he would be willing to temporarily make Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn prime minister in order to prevent a no-deal Brexit.

Lucas said: "Jo, please change your mind, Jeremy Corbyn has done the right thing".

"I look forward to joining her in the lobbies to vote this Government down".

The former Labour MP has predicted a "messy three-way split" to dominate the House of Commons during any confidence vote.

A serious calculation will be that, if he failed to secure a majority, then Corbyn might yet be persuaded to go the extra mile and give way for a "unity leader". I will support him in that move.

In response, Mr Clarke said in comments reported by The Telegraph late on Friday: "If they ask me to lead, yes I would lead it".

With Johnson staking his premiership on Brexit, the European Union refusing to re-open a previously-negotiated withdrawal deal and a majority of lawmakers opposed to both a no-deal divorce and the negotiated deal, Britain is heading for a parliamentary showdown and constitutional crisis. But after four years as Labour leader, with millions of workers looking to him to lead a fight against job losses, social cuts and militarism, Corbyn is now touting for political alliances with the very forces he promised to oppose.
