  • Chuka Umunna said the country is crying out for leadership

He also said he would table a motion of no confidence in the government "soon" if Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit deal is rejected by parliament on Tuesday, as is widely expected.

During a visit to Romania on Friday, Jean-Claude Juncker, president of the European Commission, said that despite Prime Minister Theresa May's struggles to get the deal through the United Kingdom parliament, he continues to hope she can secure backing for it in Tuesday's vote.

If you feel like you ought to know more about Brexit.

European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker said discussions were continuing with No 10 about assurances on the Irish border backstop, as he warned that a no-deal would be a "catastrophe".

He described the prospect of no deal the same way as Corbyn.

He urged both pro-Remain and "hard Brexit" party colleagues to drop their "political game-playing" and row in behind Theresa May's deal.

"I think it's now looking much less likely that parliament would allow a no-deal outcome", he told the BBC.

MPs will gather at Westminster Monday to resume their marathon debate on the Brexit bill ahead of the vote early Tuesday evening.

Mr Barclay told Marr: "What recent events have shown, with events over the last week with what happened on the legal advice where the Government was forced to act in a way it didn't want to, is the uncertainty in terms of what will happen in the House has increased. We will do everything we can to prevent a no deal exit". "We ignore that and the will of the people at our peril".

"I think that it is possible that certain types of food that are seasonable and come directly from the continent could be impacted to a limited degree".

Insisting that he had not given up hope of victory in next week's vote, he said: "What is important is for MPs on all sides, Brexiters and Remainers, whatever our disagreements, to say "We are democrats and the most important thing now is to make sure that we really do deliver Brexit".

Corbyn said: "What I'm saying is we're campaigning for a country that is brought together by investment", adding that people were "very, very angry about the way they've been treated in their different communities around the country".

The vote had been scheduled to take place in December but was called off at the last minute by the prime minister, who was facing nearly certain defeat. "I just can't see how it happens with that configuration of Parliament".
