JEREMY Corbyn was formally begged by the Lib Dems to give up on his bid to be PM so Parliament can stop a No deal.
But she said there was no way Mr Corbyn could command the confidence of the Commons as PM – and he should make way for a caretaker.
She said: “Insisting you lead an emergency government will…jeopardise the chances of a no confidence vote gaining enough support in the first place.
“You have said you will do anything to avoid a No Deal, I hope you are open to a discussion about how conceding this point may open the door to a no confidence vote succeeding.”
It came as Downing Street refused to deny that it had sought legal advice over a five week closure of Parliament to force through a No Deal Brexit.
Sources claimed Boris Johnson has asked Sir Geoffrey Cox whether Parliament could be shut down from September 9 to try and stop rebel MPs taking over the Commons to extend the Brexit deadline.
But senior Government officials rubbished claims the PM was preparing for a snap general election on October 17.
The prorogation plan sparked uproar from ‘Remain’ MPs. Labour’s Sir Keir Starmer stormed: “Any plan to suspend Parliament at this stage would be outrageous.
“MPs must take the earliest opportunity to thwart this plan and stop a No Deal Brexit.”
