Tory MP Nicky Morgan insisted her decision not to vote for an end date to Brexit will not mean that Labour will have a chance to get into Government.
Channel 4’s Matt Frei said: “Are you prepared to see the risk of Jeremy Corbyn becoming Prime Minister at the end of all of this if you vote on your principles against your party?”
Ms Morgan said: “I mean, the answer is, firstly, I do not think that that is going to happen.”
But Mr Frei took a swipe at the Remainer and said: “Well, it is possible – especially if you vote against your Government.”
Tory MP Nicky Morgan insisted Jeremy Corbyn is not ready for power
Ms Morgan said: “I do not think Jeremy Corbyn is anywhere near power.
“I’m afraid to say this kind of rhetoric is what we had when we had the debate about the Article 50 bill before and everything else.
“There is an opportunity for the Government to build a consensus in parliament about Brexit where most of us accept this is happening, we are leaving and I very much hope it’s not going to get to that.
“But this is also a momentous decision being taken that affect the future of our country and it is up to members of parliament, we have a representative democracy to act and vote in the national interest.”
Ms Morgan denied claims that she is using the EU withdrawal bill to stop Brexit. She said: “I think it’s very interesting that those who won the vote in 2016 are so paranoid about their victory because they have one.”
Theresa May amended the EU withdrawal bill so that Britain will commit to Brexit at 11pm on 29th March 2019.
Tory MP Theresa Villiers warned in October that Remainer MPs should "respect" the decision of the British people and not use the EU withdrawal bill to hamper Brexit.
Ms Villiers warned that some of the 300 amendments to the EU withdrawal bill are simply an attempt by Remainer MPs to "frustrate" the Brexit process.
