Len McCluskey, leader of the biggest union in the UK and Ireland, Unite, said:
“Millions of people have lost all confidence in this government. Tory Brexit bungling on top of the agonies of austerity means it is well past the time for Theresa May and her team to go.

“Whether it is the right moment for Labour to move a parliamentary vote of no confidence is another matter – it is far from clear that the views of the country would be reflected in the votes of MPs.

“In particular, Jeremy Corbyn should not be bounced by those who have little or no interest in seeing Labour elected. They would be better placed using a censure motion and waiting for the right time to issue a vote of no confidence.”
