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.”

He added: ‪“All options on the table means there is no hierarchy of options but this is our policy.”‬

Following Theresa May’s defeat of her Brexit plan 71 Labour MPs called for Jeremy Corbyn to back a People’s Vote - with more expected to support a fresh referendum if the confidence vote fails.
