Corbyn: If we lose the confidence vote we’ll push our Brexit plan

Jeremy Corbyn appears to be ignoring the wishes of his own party's conference motion by proposing to push ahead with his own version of Brexit if he loses the tabled vote of no confidence motion.
The Labour leader's spokesman said that Corbyn could propose more than one motion of no confidence in Theresa May.
Should that fail they believe that a fresh referendum is not the only option on the table.
Flying in the of the wishes of Labour party members, voters, MPs, and even Momentum, Jeremy Corbyn is planning to continue to push his own Brexit plan if he is unable to secure a general election.
The spokesman said: 'The first is the alternative plan that we have laid out and that we believe can command a majority across the commons, even without a general election.'
