British PM warns of "catastrophe" in last minute plea for Brexit deal

Corbyn hinted that Article 50 may have to be extended if his party came into power.He told Marr: "Clearly if Theresa May's deal is voted down, clearly if a general election takes place and a Labour government comes in - an election would take place February, March time - clearly there's only a few weeks between that and the leave date, there would have to be time for those negotiations".

In the event her exit deal is voted down, some Brexiters have argued for the United Kingdom to leave without a deal, but other MPs also object to the no deal Brexit - calling for either Article 50 to be extended or revoked, or a second referendum to allow the general public to decide the next move.

Meanwhile, Liberal Democrat leader Sir Vince Cable said it would be "outrageous and unforgivable" if a no-deal Brexit was allowed to happen, adding: "I think Parliament will take control of this process, will insist that we pursue the option of no Brexit".

TNE columnist and Labour peer Andrew Adonis said: "When Chris Grayling can organise a lorry jam and a railway timetable, we'll take his advice on fixing a political system which he did more than nearly anyone to break".

"The prime minister's got to stop threatening parliament and indeed, threatening the whole of the United Kingdom, that it's a choice between her deal and no deal - that's not the case".

Billionaire businessman Peter Hargreaves, who pumped more than £3 million into the exit campaign, told Reuters: "I have totally given up".

The EU is waiting to see the outcome of Tuesday's vote - and the margin of the expected defeat - before considering its response, officials said, with some predicting that May will have to delay Brexit.
