Jo Swinson prepared to do 'whatever it takes' to stop Brexit

Liberal Democrats leader Jo Swinson has said she is prepared to do "whatever it takes" to stop Brexit as she welcomed the party's latest MP Sarah Wollaston.

Joined by the party's newest MP and Chukka Umunna, Ms Swinson suggested Ken Clarke or Harriet Harman be installed as the prime minister of an "emergency government" to resolve the Brexit crisis.

In her first major speech as party leader, she dismissed Jeremy Corbyn's challenge to opposition parties to install him as caretaker prime minister until a general election to prevent a no-deal Brexit under Boris Johnson.

She instead recommended placing either the Father or Mother of the House of Commons to lead an emergency government.
