Shapps: 'Extraordinary' that Tory MPs would consider Corbyn
Transport Secretary Grant Shapps says it is "absolutely extraordinary if any Conservative MP considered even for one minute installing Jeremy Corbyn in Downing Street". The Labour leader has written to opposition party leaders asking them to support a vote of no confidence in the government and install him as caretaker prime minister until a general election. Guto Bebb is one Conservative MP who could support such a move as the Welsh MP vowed to do "anything that is necessary" to stop a no-deal Brexit. Report by Jonesia.
