Three top Tory Remainers are facing calls to be booted out of the party today after they agreed to meet Jeremy Corbyn to discuss how to block a No Deal divorce from the EU.
The Labour leader sent a letter to opposition leaders and a handful of senior Europhile Conservative MPs last night urging them to help him topple Boris Johnson and become caretaker PM to delay Brexit beyond October 31.
The proposal has been given short shrift by Liberal Democrat leader Jo Swinson who called the plan 'nonsense' but a trio of pro-EU Tories have agreed to face-to-face talks with Mr Corbyn.
Dominic Grieve, Dame Caroline Spelman and Sir Oliver Letwin reportedly said in a written response to Mr Corbyn: 'We agree that our common priority should be to work together in Parliament to prevent No Deal Brexit and welcome your invitation to discuss the different ways that this might be achieved.
'We would be happy to meet with you as well as colleagues from other opposition parties whenever convenient in the weeks before Parliament returns.'
