Remainer MPs sign People’s Parliament ’declaration’ opposing a No Deal Brexit
JEREMY Corbyn and Remainer MPs have agreed on a plan for a new law to scrap the October 31 Brexit deadline – as he shelved his bid to become PM.
The Labour boss hosted an anti-No Deal summit today with five other opposition parties – and agreed to put his preferred plan to boot Boris Johnson out with a vote of no confidence on the back burner.

Boris Johnson said earlier: “The referendum result must be respected.
“We will leave the EU on 31st October.”
A No10 source said Mr Corbyn and opposition leaders were “actively seeking to sabotage the UK’s position”.
They added: “This coalition of anti-democrats should be honest with the British public – they are against us leaving the EU no matter what.
“The Government believes politicians don’t get to choose which public votes they respect.”
Anna Soubry described today’s discussions as “excellent” and confirmed the group’s plans.
The Independent Group for Change leader said: “We agree we will work together to stop a No Deal Brexit by legislation.”
Green Party leader Caroline Lucas said a plan for a no confidence vote and “temporary government” wasn’t even discussed at today’s crunch summit.
She told BBC News: “There was complete unanimity around a number of issues – the legislative way is the way forward. To extend Article 50 and get rid of the October 31 deadline.
“It was a very constructive meeting.”
