LONDON — Britain’s fractious opposition politicians are giving a mixed reception to a plan by Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn to block a no-deal Brexit.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has vowed that Britain will leave the EU on Oct. 31, with or without a divorce deal. Many economists say a no-deal Brexit will cause economic turmoil.

Corbyn has written to other parties saying he plans to call a no-confidence vote in Johnson’s government when Parliament returns from its summer break in September.

He says Parliament should then unite behind a Corbyn-led “temporary government” that would seek a delay to Brexit and call a national election.

Some lawmakers welcomed the idea. But Jo Swinson, leader of the pro-EU Liberal Democrats, said Thursday that the idea was “nonsense” because Corbyn is a divisive figure.
