British Opposition Leader Calls for No-Confidence Vote

British Opposition Leader Calls for No-Confidence Vote

Bebb also criticised other parties and MPs who claim to oppose a crash-out Brexit, yet have rejected the Labour leader's offer to call a vote of no confidence in Johnson's government.

Ms Sturgeon signalled her 35 MPs could support Mr Corbyn's plan for a no-confidence vote, extension to the Brexit deadline and general election with him as temporary PM.

The MP for East Dunbartonshire responded to a day of criticism on Thursday evening with a more conciliatory tone, stating that she had offered to meet Corbyn to "discuss how we can work together on a deliverable plan to stop no-deal, including the option of uniting behind an MP who can command a majority in the House".

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.

"The rag tag group of Independents, many of whom left the Labour Party because of Corbyn, will find every excuse not to vote for him".

Swinson had proposed Ken Clarke or Harriet Harman, the longest serving male and female MPs, as neutral figures to lead a temporary government.

Mr Clarke said it was "not inconceivable" that a government of national unity may be needed to resolve the impasse, suggesting politics was in a similar situation to 1931 and the two world wars.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson came under pressure Sunday to immediately recall lawmakers from their summer holiday so parliament can debate Brexit.

This was echoed by Plaid Cymru MP Liz Saville Roberts, who said that while her party is "very much open" to the formation of a unity government, it is "extremely disappointing" that Corbyn's proposal does not contain a commitment to a second referendum before a general election.

"And I'm confident that if that's what the House of Commons resolves that those individuals will be happy to take on that role to try to steer our country through these hard waters".

Mr Brake has reiterated his party's stance against ever supporting a Corbyn leadership, just as Ms Swinson ruled out working with Boris Johnson when she was appointed last month.

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

German officials expect the United Kingdom to leave the European Union without a deal at the end of October and consider the EU's preparations for this eventuality to be "largely completed", according to business daily Handelsblatt.

"I wouldn't be able to support that, no". It is clear Jeremy Corbyn can not command that majority in the house.

Plans to revitalise "struggling high streets" by reopening thousands of boarded-up shops in England will be set out by Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.

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.
