Listen: Jeremy Corbyn, Prime Minister And Corbin discussed on Monocle 24: The Briefing
"Panel which today is lance price political commentator tatum former director of communications for u._k. Prime minister tony blair antares destiny the author and journalist <hes> we will start he in the u._k. Which is now close enough to brexit seventy seven days that some of its politicians appear to have apprehended the fact that crashing out of the e._u. With no deal is what will happen on october thirty first unless someone does something to stop it jeremy corbyn the leader of the opposition whose opposition to brexit has been of than full-throated these last few years has suggested so flawlessly that m._p.'s opposing no deal unite to vote no confidence in prime minister boris johnson and install corbin as caretaker prime minister until an election and possibly another referendum can be held. He is some of what jeremy corbyn had to say. I hope they will all support the motion of confidence that i will put and that will ensure that this government then cannot continue with this headlong pursuit of an ideal brexit and that would mean a caretaker government led by labor uh-huh which would be a government in order to prevent a no deal brexit and bring about a general election so the people of this country can decide their future lance first of all in this prospect going to go anywhere the prospect of corbin lead a caretaker government propped up obviously and i'm not sure off the top from my head what the math saw but he would need some nano deal tories on board. You would think the liberal democrats the s._n._p. And so forth yeah it's not going to happen. It's fairly party politics. I think everybody at the moment is playing politics with this proposal. It's not a particularly unwise wise thing for him to have suggested because the opposition convention suggests that in the event of an of a of a no confidence vote the leader of the opposition should be the first person that but returned to have the first opportunity to form a government the problem with it is that if there were to be a no confidence vote and there will be no confidence vote and and <hes> the majority of m._p.'s all m._p.'s knew that the consequence of voting confidence in the government was to have jeremy corbyn prime minister then the chances of that vote going through through parliament would be substantially reduced so that's the reason why it ain't going to happen and but <hes> i think jeremy corbyn has it quite successfully put the ball into his opponents call because he's now saying to the liberal democrats into the people who've left the labor party into the other independence into the circle rebel conservatives that if they're serious about rocking no deal than it should be without preconditions and putting down precondition that jeremy corbyn shouldn't be the caretaker. <hes> prime minister suggested their first priority is not stopping new deal <hes> terry i if if at some point in the next seventy seven days <hes> some were other the senior politician will cease to actual <hes> flush of country before party and let's say that was jeremy corbyn supposing he acknowledged this proposal isn't going to happen all the reasons that land suggested which basically boiled down to the fact that you know a lot of people don't jeremy corbyn very much what if he refurbish this proposal with a genuinely selfless offer to step aside in favor of a list of icy figurehead if one could be agreed upon does it then have any legs or are we indulging"
