Lib Dems scotch idea of Corbyn-led caretaker government | Financial Times
Liberal Democrats have scotched the idea of installing Jeremy Corbyn in Downing Street to avoid a no-deal Brexit, thereby thwarting the Labour party leadership's hopes of forming a caretaker government this autumn.

Boris Johnson is expected to face a no-confidence vote in his government soon after the UK parliament returns from its summer recess early in September. If the Conservatives fail to maintain the confidence of MPs, Labour has said it will attempt to form an alternative government. But without support from the 13 Lib Dem MPs, it will be unable to form a majority.

"I can't conceive of any circumstances under which we would put Jeremy Corbyn into No. 10," said one senior Lib Dem MP. "He's not only dangerous for our national security but for our economic security too."

So the only popular policy the LibDems have is opposing Brexit, and they are much too craven to just propose revoke, but they prefer no-deal to having Corbyn as PM?
