Ian Blackford has said the SNP will back Jeremy Corbyn's no confidence motion.

The Labour leader blasted the Prime Minister for the "biggest government defeat since the 1920s".

The motion is due to be debated and voted on in Parliament tomorrow.

Earlier today, before the vote, Mr Blackford called for MPs to “take control” of the House of Commons and ensure a no-deal Brexit is avoided.

He said: “I think everyone now knows that there is no such thing as a ‘good Brexit’, there’s no such thing as a ‘jobs-first Brexit’, as some have claimed. Under any scenario, people are going to be poorer, people are going to lose their jobs. As politicians, we’ve got a responsibility to have a conversation with everybody that we now know that Brexit is going to be painful.

“I would like the House of Commons now to take control because the Prime Minister has failed to give leadership. The Prime Minister’s got to stop threatening Parliament and indeed, threatening the whole of the United Kingdom, that it’s a choice between her deal and no deal – that’s not the case. There are other options that are open to us and Parliament has to make sure that it takes the necessary action to protect the interests of all of us."

Blackford said that revoking Article 50, which sets a deadline of March 29 for the date of departure, and holding another referendum would be the most sensible option for moving forward.

“I think the sensible thing to do now is to put this back to the people, let’s have a People’s Vote,” he said.
