He accused the Prime Minister of seeking a no-deal Brexit and going above the law. Addressing the chamber he said: "This government must be stopped. I am looking now at colleagues on Opposition benches and I urge them, we must unite, we must stop this Prime Minister by removing him from office.   

"Other parties need to step up at this moment of national crisis, preparing a vote of no confidence to ensure a Brexit extension, prevent a no-deal and call a general election. Doing nothing is not an option, we must act.
