Brexit: SNP is ready to back a soft exit deal

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon met opposition leaders to try and forge a softer Brexit option on Tuesday, before meeting Mrs May to urge her to change course.

Labour and the other opposition parties are trying to find a way to present MPs with other options.

"If it is, it is demonstrating as a minority government it hasn't got the will of House - a majority in the House".

Mr McDonnell's intervention is in line with Labour's policy that a new general election to install Mr Corbyn in Downing Street is preferable to a new referendum.

The First Minister said she was keen to talk to Mr Corbyn "and whoever else" in the Commons when she visits London.

Arguing that Labour can secure a deal with closer ties to the European Union market and better protections for workers' rights, Mr Corbyn will say: "The government is trying to force a bad deal that doesn't meet our country's needs by threatening us all with the chaos and serious damage to our economy of a no-deal outcome". "We just can not go on with this instability, uncertainty that there is in government, day by day and sometimes hour by hour".

Asked about calls for a second referendum, Mr Corbyn said: "It's an option for the future but it's not an option for today, if there was a referendum tomorrow what's it going to be on, what's the question going to be?"

LeBron James says Lonzo Ball 'doesn't realize how great he is'
After Ball struggled on the road in Miami and Orlando last week, LeBron and other Lakers told him to start being more aggressive. Utah held the up-tempo Lakers to 13 fast-break points and just five offensive rebounds in addition to LA's 24 turnovers.

"I think we can secure a majority in parliament for some of the proposals we're putting forward".

'Then we could be into a situation of a war of attrition within parliament of amendments to legislation taking place and uncertainty continuing, ' he said.

Mr Reed, the MP for Croydon North, told the Standard: 'MPs will not just sit there, counting down the clock until the country faces catastrophe next March.

That is exactly what the Conservative government's botched deal does. Only the people can break the logjam'.

"I will seek to have discussions this week with other parties to get us into that position".

McDonnell has raised the prospect that, faced with the reality that she can no longer command a majority in parliament, May should step aside without calling an election and give Labour a shot at delivering a different Brexit deal.
