If Corbyn cannot command a majority, he must support someone who can

Responding to Jeremy Corbyn's comments this afternoon, former Leader of the Liberal Democrats Vince Cable said:

"It would be up to the House of Commons to decide who a caretaker prime minister put in place to stop a no-deal Brexit would be. This is not about party leaders, but getting a group together to stop no-deal. It is clear Jeremy Corbyn cannot command that majority in the House. I urge him to do the right thing and confirm that if he cannot, he will support someone who can."
