Johnson has promised to take Britain out of the European Union by October 31, with or without a deal, setting the scene for a showdown in parliament where lawmakers are opposed to a divorce without a transition agreement.

"Our leader is Jeremy Corbyn, and she should respect the leader of the Labour Party and his title as the official opposition", the Shadow Education Secretary said.

Swinson's own plan to lead a national unity government is unlikely to win support.

Paul Davies, Tory group leader in the Welsh Assembly, said the plan was "unnecessary and undemocratic as the people of Wales voted in good faith for us to leave the EU".

"Surely she must recognise she is a leader of one of the opposition parties who are apparently opposed to this Government, and apparently prepared to support a motion of no confidence".

The Labour leader has tried to sound out the top civil servant "for his view on how purdah rules would apply if Parliament is dissolved for a general election campaign" that straddles the scheduled Brexit date of October 31.

Dominic Grieve, Caroline Spelman, and Oliver Letwin, as well as former Conservative MP Nick Boles, told Corbyn in a letter that they agreed their "common priority should be to work together in parliament to stop a no-deal Brexit".

"It is not even certain that he would secure all the votes of Labour MPs". They fear that after Brexit, the government will erode workers rights, weaken environmental and other standards and row back on the welfare state.

But the ASA found that the ad "perpetuated a harmful stereotype, namely that men were ineffective at childcare". The message: "When we learn to adapt, we can achieve anything".

The British government wants to create an "express freight service" to ensure essential medicines are still available if the United Kingdom leaves the European Union without a divorce deal.

She said, "Jeremy Corbyn is not the person who is going to be able to build an even temporary majority in the House of Commons for this task - I would expect there are people in his own party and indeed the necessary Conservative backbenchers who would be unwilling to support him".

Under the fixed terms parliament act, if the government of the day loses a vote of confidence, a period of 14 days opens up in which parliamentarians can try to establish an administration which could gain the confidence of the House.

According to a report by Germany's Federal Ministry of Finance, the German government is assuming that Britain will leave the European Union (EU) without a treaty, German newspaper Handelsblatt reported on Thursday.

The two veteran MPs are an alternative to Jeremy Corbyn becoming caretaker prime minister, Swinson has suggested.

Referring to Mr Johnson's Brexit plans, West Bromwich East MP Mr Watson said: "To stop him, everyone who cares about democracy, our country and our future must work together, because there are enough of us from all parties in Parliament to stop him".

That chatter increased after Labour economy spokesman John McDonnell said he'd be "sending Jeremy Corbyn in a cab to Buckingham Palace to say we're taking over" if Johnson lost a vote of no-confidence.
