Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s government would win a vote of no confidence put forward by the opposition Labour Party, said energy minister Kwasi Kwarteng speaking to Sky News.
Earlier this week opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn urged rebel Conservative MPs to help block a no-deal Brexit by bringing down Johnson’s administration and allowing him to form a caretaker government before a general election.
“I’m strongly of the view that the government would win a vote of no confidence, I don’t see Jeremy Corbyn being able to come together with the numbers, nor do I see any prospect of him leading a so called national unity government,” Kwarteng told Sky News.
“He’s the most unpopular leader of the opposition we’ve ever had and the idea that he’s going to lead a unity government I think is ridiculous,” he said.
