UK Prime Minister Theresa May faced heavy criticism from Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn in the House of Commons on Wednesday, as he sought details as to the consequences of the Brady amendment's passage.

Corbyn asked May for assurances that "if she is unable to secure any legal changes to the backstop then she would work to find a solution based on a comprehensive customs union, a strong single market deal," rather than accepting a no deal scenario but May declined to do so.

The prime minister instead claimed that the real risk of a no deal scenario was Corbyn, stating that "he has opposed every move by this government, he's the one risking no deal."
