Shapps: 'Extraordinary' that Tory MPs would consider Corbyn

Dame Caroline also said she could not support the proposal, nor a vote of no confidence in her own Government.

But SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon did not rule out the backing of her party's 35 MPs.

The leader of the Liberal Democrats, Jo Swinson, has reiterated that she would work with the Labour party to prevent a no-deal Brexit amid pressure from other opposition leaders, but underlined her belief that a Jeremy Corbyn-led unity government would not win the confidence of the House of Commons.

"You either have Jeremy Corbyn as prime minister overturning the result of the referendum or Boris Johnson respecting the referendum, putting more money into the NHS, more police on the streets to keep us all safe". In the summer of 2017, Corbyn opposed Britain remaining in the single market, even sacking from his team Labour MPs who favored the single market.

Backbench MP Wes Streeting said the Lib Dems were "wrong to reject" Mr Corbyn's offer, saying it should be "treated seriously" by everyone trying to stop no-deal.

She instead suggested veteran MPs Ken Clarke or Harriet Harman for the role because they are "respected on both sides of the House".

Standing in for James O'Brien, David Lammy admitted his surprise at the Lib Dem leader's reluctance to join a cross-party plot to stop block a no-deal Brexit.

"What I would say is issue a plea to Jo Swinson particularly".

Her sentiment was echoed by Green MP Caroline Lucas.

Murphy was stabbed while in bed at her Santa Monica apartment but was able to fight back, causing the attacker to cut himself. He is likely to be extradited to IL to face a separate trial in that case, which unearthed new evidence in 2011.

'They put public duty first and they don't want to see a no-deal Brexit, ' Swinson told BBC Radio on Friday. "I think he's almost 80".

It is a chance for MPs to hold a vote on whether they want the government to continue - and it has the power to trigger a general election.

Ms Swinson responded: "I'd really prefer we stop a no-deal Brexit and if Jeremy Corbyn isn't realistic about the make-up of the House of Commons and how he is viewed, he needs to have a bit of self-awareness".

"The prime minister has appointed a much more united and disciplined cabinet which is going to get this Brexit process done by the end of October - preferably with a deal with our European Union partners", Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab told Fox News' Bret Baier last week. We will all work together to enable Parliament to prevent the deep damage a No Deal Brexit would do to our country!'

"I'm not Jeremy Corbyn's biggest fan but on this he's right", she tweeted.

Once Corbyn was on the ballot, his campaign manager coined the phrase "straight-talking honest politics", portraying him as an alternative to the career politicians who were his opponents.

Pro-Brexit forces say that while leaving without a deal could be bumpy, it would not be as bad as Remainers claim - and have accused them of engaging in "Project Fear". Telling him to cheer up in Latin just won't wash.

"There's no way he can unite rebel Conservatives and independents", Swinson said in a speech in London on Thursday.

Corbyn's proposal was that he should table a confidence motion - as leader of the main opposition party, he is the only person who can demand such a vote and be certain of the request being accepted - once other parties had agreed to his plan. He was an MP before I was born.
