LONDON, Aug 19: British opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn said on Monday he supported recalling parliament to deal with the Brexit crisis but sidestepped a question about whether he would step down as leader.
"We will do everything to stop a no-deal Brexit," Corbyn said, when asked if he would consider stepping aside to help stop Brexit. "There seems to be an awful lot of very imaginative what-iffery in the press at the present time."
Corbyn will meet with other British political leaders next week to discuss tactics to prevent a no-deal Brexit.  Britain has less than 74 days to resolve a three-year crisis that is pitting the country against the EU.
The European Commission said on Monday that the EU was ready for a no-deal Brexit and that Britain would suffer most under such a scenario.
Speaking at a regular daily briefing, Commission spokeswoman Natasha Bertaud said a no-deal UK exit would never be the EU's preferred scenario, adding that the Brussels-based executive saw no need for additional contingency preparations at this stage.     -REUTERS
