Corbyn and McCluskey reject Jo Swinson's Brexit games

18 Août, 2019, 07:26 | Auteur: Anatole Charbonneau

Stamford MP Nick Boles has joined anti-Brexit rebel Tories in seeking a meeting with Jeremy Corbyn to stop a "no deal" Brexit. I'm wholly in support of that. We can talk to each other how we can co-ordinate and co-operate in order to achieve that.

Mr Corbyn told the PA news agency: "It's not up to Jo Swinson to choose candidates, it's not up to Jo Swinson to decide who the next prime minister is going to be".

Matt pressed him on how far he would go to stop a no-deal Brexit and the Conservative MP admitted he was even willing to bring down his own government.

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.

"But if I cannot do so and I come to the conclusion it is the only way in which a hard Brexit can be avoided, I will have to do that".

Anna Soubry, leader of the Independent Group, confirmed on Friday that she would also "not support nor facilitate any government led by Jeremy Corbyn".

Brexit supporters say there may be short-term disruption from a no-deal exit but that the economy will eventually thrive if cut free from what they cast as a doomed experiment in integration that has led to Europe falling behind China and the United States.

SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon was among those applying pressure to Ms Swinson to re-think her position.

Mr Clarke continued: "A government of national unity is just one of the things that might be called for - it's not inconceivable - I mean we're in a similar situation to 1931 and rather wildly to the two world wars when the same thing happened".

The poll found almost a quarter of Remain voters (23 percent) would prefer a no deal Brexit to a Labour Government under Mr Corbyn - even if he guaranteed a fresh vote.

Mr Grieve, a former attorney general, said there was a "growing number" of Tory MPs who were "horrified" by the direction of Mr Johnson's government.

On Friday Swinson told BBC radio she had spoken to both of them, and both said they would be willing to serve.

The prime minister will travel to Berlin to meet German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Wednesday, and meet French President Emmanuel Macron in Paris on Thursday. He said Mr Johnson's language had led to members of the public sending death threats to him for his role in trying to prevent a no-deal Brexit.

"If leading politicians use language - collaborator is an obvious one - or call people a traitor, you immediately start to receive really vile emails and communications", Mr Grieve said.

"I would be surprised if this parliament developed a majority to thwart the British people because the overwhelming majority of MPs were elected on a clear promise to see us out of the European Union with a deal if there's a good deal on offer and without the deal if there wasn't a good deal on offer", he said.
