Dominic Grieve told LBC that he will bring down Boris Johnson's government if it's the only way to stop a no-deal Brexit.

Hopes were high among some within Boris Johnson's circle that the newly crowned Prime Minister would be able to breath life into the stale UK-EU negotiations on Brexit.

"Johnson is expected to tell them that they have two months to agree a deal acceptable to the cabinet and parliament, without which the United Kingdom will exit without an agreement on Halloween", the paper said.

The government said the document was not what it expected to happen, but outlined scenarios being looked at as part of its no-deal preparations.

The trip to meet Chancellor Angela Merkel and President Emmanuel Macron is set for Tuesday, the Guardian reported.

However, it is thought that the leaders are more likely to discuss issues such as foreign policy, security, trade and the environment, ahead of the G7 summit next weekend.

The comments in the meeting are the biggest signs yet that Mr Johnson is readying the Conservatives for an election soon.

No 10 does not seem particularly optimistic and says that it expects both sides will say their piece, then move on to other issues.

Jeremy Corbyn wrote to Opposition MPs, and some Tory MPs, with a plan to be caretaker Prime Minister in a bid to avoid a no-deal Brexit - and promised to call a general election.

Speaking to the Observer daily on Sunday, Corbyn said his plan to be installed as a caretaker Prime Minister was the "simplest and most democratic way to stop no-deal".

"We have to seize the opportunity before it's too late, so the people, rather than an unelected prime minister, can decide our country's future", he said.

The poll of 1,515 adults, carried out by BMG Research, also revealed that almost half of voters (49%) want the Prime Minister to either delay or cancel Brexit or stage a fresh referendum.

The Labour Party and Liberal Democrat leaders are at odds over who might lead an emergency government of national unity to stop a United Kingdom departure from the European Union without a deal.

Conservative opponents of a no-deal Brexit are deeply suspicious of Corbyn, whom they see as a risky Marxist intent on nationalising swathes of British industry and hiking state spending and taxes.

To form a new parliamentary majority with cross-party backing, Letwin said lawmakers would first have to agree a strategy for Brexit, revealing the divisions that have hampered pro-EU politicians since they lost the 2016 referendum.

More than 100 MPs from across the House of Commons have urged Johnson to recall Parliament and let it sit permanently until the United Kingdom leaves the EU.

The majority of the public don't want a no-deal Brexit, a new poll suggests.
