Latest poll:
The public decisively rejects Boris Johnson’s threat to crash the UK out of the EU without a deal, undermining his claim to have a mandate for the dramatic step, an exclusive poll for The Independent shows.

Only 34 per cent of voters want the prime minister to carry out a no-deal Brexit on 31 October if necessary – while 49 per cent urge him to either delay, cancel Brexit altogether, or stage a fresh referendum.
Meanwhile, Remain political parties are considering teaming up to oust Prime Minister Boris Johnson in order to stop a no-deal Brexit. However, there is not yet consensus on who should be the interim prime minister following Boris' ousting, with Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn thinking it should be him, and others favoring a more unifying figure such as the "Father of the House" (longest continuously-serving MP) Kenneth Clarke, or the "Mother of the House" (longest continuously-serving female MP), Harriet Harman.
