He said: "Four decisions need to be made: MPs should vote against no deal; they should vote against the Prime Minister's deal; the European Union should be asked to extend Article 50 deadline to stop the United Kingdom crashing out in March; and MPs should come together to support a new referendum on European Union membership".
