Despite the disappointing results the opposition has stated that they will continue to fight against a no deal Brexit on all fronts and that they will not give up.

The admission came after Conservative Party leadership candidate Boris Johnson said last week he would withhold the payment in exchange for a better exit deal from the EU.

Labour sources admitted that there was concern that Tories who may be inclined to back the motion would instead remain loyal to the party line until a new leader had been chosen.

He attacked politicians who played down the risks of a no-deal Brexit through misleading language, adding: "No deal is not "clean", the mitigations announced so far are temporary, incomplete and untested with industry, and we would then have to enter into talks with the European Union all over again".

Snell said Labour "will have been responsible for a no-deal Brexit by default because of our inability to make a decision" - before abstaining on a motion to stop no-deal Brexit.

Westminster was largely taken by surprise when the Commons defeated Labour's latest move to block no deal yesterday - particularly with a difference of 11 votes, a smaller margin than the Cooper amendment loss but still significant in these knife-edge Brexit votes.

The motion, however, did not set out the details of any such legislation nor would it prevent the government from introducing a Brexit deal to parliament.

If the vote was successful, they could have used their control of the Commons agenda on that day to bring forward legislation to prevent any future prime minister forcing through a no-deal Brexit.

The result means MPs will now not be able to introduce legislation on June 25 to attempt to stop the United Kingdom leaving without a Brexit deal on October 31.

Mr Johnson insisted he wanted a "sensible, orderly" departure from the European Union but said the country had to be ready for a no-deal Brexit if it was to get the terms it needed from Brussels.

"In fact, I think we're probably just going to get a fudged version of her deal". Labour stands ready to use whatever mechanism it can to protect jobs, the economy and communities from the disastrous consequences of a no deal Brexit.

She told BBC Radio 4's Today programme: 'This is about that safety valve, that lock in the process, so that somebody who may find themselves elected a leader of the Tory Party on a promise of, in Dominic Raab's case, proroguing Parliament, and locking Parliament out of this process - they can't do that.

"I do not think we will end up with any such thing, but it is only responsible to prepare vigorously and seriously for no deal".

According to him, the threat of a no deal Brexit is a powerful negotiation tool and the United Kingdom needs to be better than the current deal. "He is the only candidate that reduces the Brexit party's support enough (below 20%) to do this".
