Responding to Michael Gove's refusal to rule out ignoring any law passed by Parliament to stop a no-deal, Liberal Democrat Shadow Brexit Secretary Tom Brake said:
"We are in real threat of our democracy being silenced. This authoritarian power grab must be stopped.
"From shutting down Parliament to ignoring expert warnings today from the British Retail Consortium on the danger of food shortages, it appears Michael Gove has sold his soul to the devil.
"Liberal Democrats demand better. We will do everything we can to stand up for people and give them the final say on Brexit, with the option to remain in the EU."
