Swinson could be open to accord if Corbyn quits
LIBERAL Democrat leader Jo Swinson has signalled the party would be more open to an accord with Labour in a hung parliament if Jeremy Corbyn stood down after the General Election.
Ms Swinson has insisted the Lib Dems would not put either Mr Corbyn or Boris Johnson into Downing Street in the event of no party securing a Commons majority on Thursday.
But asked about how she would react if Mr Corbyn quit as
Labour leader after the election, she said: “Obviously we don’t know who the personalities would be in that circumstance, but we will take a view on that depending on what circumstance we find ourselves in.
“I have been working with people from the Labour Party, and people from the Conservative Party, and the SNP, and Plaid Cymru, and the Green Party to try and stop Brexit and try and secure a people’s vote so that we can remain in the European Union.”
She added: “Obviously, Jeremy Corbyn... is completely unfit to be Prime Minister, as is Boris Johnson for a whole host of different reasons.
“And so, if Labour are in a situation where they consider that Jeremy Corbyn is no longer fit to lead them, then we will of course look to keep working with people to try and secure a people’s vote.”
