Responding to Jeremy Corbyn's speech this morning, in which he said he would do “everything necessary to stop a disastrous no-deal Brexit”, Liberal Democrat Brexit spokesperson Tom Brake said:
"Jeremy Corbyn must now deliver and prove this is not just an empty promise. If he truly wants to stop a no-deal, he must accept that he must not be prescriptive about how we ensure that happens.
"This is not about party leaders, but about stopping Boris Johnson from dragging us off the cliff-edge.
"It is clear Jeremy Corbyn cannot command a majority in the House. He must do the right thing and confirm that if he cannot, he will support someone who can."
