Johnson tells officials to make no-deal Brexit planning 'top priority'

Who Will Be Unity Prime Minister if Boris Johnson is Ousted

"But I am not taking part in these little summer games", said Juncker, who is due to be leaving his position soon.

Boris Johnson has told civil servants that preparing for a no-deal Brexit must be their "top priority" as all leave for Government advisers was cancelled in the run-up to Britain's European Union withdrawal.

Michael Gove, the British government minister responsible for planning for a "no-deal Brexit", confirmed for the first time that ministers were working on a package to help companies at risk, the newspaper added.

Sir Vince said some MPs would not be able to support a new Government led by Jeremy Corbyn, but that they may be able to support a "more broadly based group" and Parliament would reject a no-deal Brexit because the "consequences are so dire". I applaud him for his energy and determination to get Brexit by 31st of October "deal or no-deal", "do or die".

But former Labour MP turned Lib Dem Chuka Umunna claimed a "substantial minority" of Labour MPs would not support their own party leader being prime minister.

"The problem there is with the prospect of Jeremy Corbyn taking up the role of leading an emergency government is he can not command a majority among his own MPs, never mind others like Conservative rebels who would refuse to give him confidence", he told BBC Radio 4's Today programme.

Amid ever-increasing fears at European Union level that the British government actually wants to crash out, the prime minister yesterday called on MPs to "get on and deliver" Brexit.

But Sir Paul Nurse, the director of the prestigious Francis Crick Institute who carried out a major review of United Kingdom research funding structures in 2014, said losing access to the scheme would mean losing "meaningful collaboration" with global institutions. "The Lib Dems are clearly willing to watch the economy crash before they will put their party interests to one side".

It comes after it emerged on Thursday that the Tory government is preparing to call an election "days after" the Brexit deadline date of October 31 - if a majority of UK MPs vote no-confidence in his administration, according to the Financial Times.

He said the Cabinet Office's election "purdah" rules made it clear that policy decisions on which a new government "might be expected to want to take a different view" should be postponed until after polling day.

Corbyn wrote to civil service chief Mark Sedwill on Thursday seeking a ruling that the government would have to delay Brexit until after an election "to let the electorate decide and the incoming government to take the next steps on the basis of the voters' wishes".
