1 min read

Jo Swinson, the leader of the Liberal Democrats, has dismissed Jeremy Corbyn’s plan to stop no deal, saying the Labour leader does not command enough support to become a caretaker prime minister. In a speech outlining her party’s Brexit proposals, she suggested opposition parties should instead support Conservative backbencher Charles Clarke, or Labour’s Harriet Harman to lead an interim government.
