Jo Swinson and Jeremy Corbyn have reportedly been unable to reach an agreement on who to support as Interim PM until Brexit can be resolved. They both have plans to call a motion of no confidence, and then put a motion of confidence in a candidate to serve as Johnson's replacement. Jeremy Corbyn as Leader of the Opposition for Corbyn himself.

As a result there has been much uncertainty and fear over whether we'll be forced into a GE, provided of course Johnson willingly resigns to keep convention (an amendment to the Fixed Term Parliaments Act to force resignation has been suggested. As would using a humble address instead to install a new PM who has the confidence of Parliament.)

Make no mistake, they both have fine points (Corbyn should have first nomination as Leader of the Opposition and Swinson that he's too controversial and he should suggest someone he'd nominate) but in the end I'd prefer it if they can just agree to focus on stopping Johnson and maintaining order.

As such this petition is to humbly ask that Jo Swinson should support Jeremy Corbyn if time comes too close to running out, but at the same time Corbyn should be clear on who he'd support. Please, these are petty politics in comparison to Johnson's desire for a No Deal Brexit and to blame it on the EU. Unity has been your greatest strength so far, don't lose it now.
