Jeremy Corbyn and Nick Clegg are set to back the ‘no deal’ Brexit plan, a source has revealed.
The Prime Minister and her cabinet are expected to agree on a deal to ensure no new trade deals are agreed with the EU and that Britain does not have to pay more for access to the single market or customs union.
A Downing Street source said: “The Prime Minster is expected to put the plans together and agree on the final package by the end of the week.”
Ms May and Mr Clegg have repeatedly refused to commit to a “no deal” Brexit, which means Britain will leave the EU without a deal.
But they have repeatedly said they will work with the other parties to deliver a “proper deal” to protect the UK’s interests.
Labour’s Brexit spokesman Keir Starmer has said there is a “clear path” to securing a “yes” vote on any deal, and he has promised to support it in Parliament.
Mr Clegg told ITV: “It’s a no-deal scenario, it’s not a yes-no scenario. “
We have to deliver the Brexit that we said we would do and we are working very closely with the Government on this, and I’m confident we will get it.”
“I am a firm believer in a no deal scenario.”‘”
