Britain’s Labor Party has urged MPs from the Conservative Party and those who oppose its ruling party policies to help prevent Brexit without agreement by overthrowing Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s government and opening the door for their leader, Jeremy Corbyn, to form an interim government.

Johnson has vowed to leave Britain by October 31 whether or not an agreement is reached, paving the way for a showdown in parliament where there are many opposition members to leave without an agreement.

Corbyn said in a letter to opposition party leaders and a number of top conservatives opposed to an EU withdrawal without an agreement that his “interim government, bound by a very specific timetable,” would delay the exit from the EU and hold general elections.

He said Labor party would run on the basis of its support for a second referendum on Brexit conditions, including the option of whether the country should remain in the union three years after it backed out.

“This government does not have a mandate to go out without agreement, and the 2016 referendum did not include a mandate to go out without agreement,” Corbyn said. “So I intend to put a no-confidence vote as soon as possible when we are confident of winning.”

A spokeswoman for Downing Street’s Johnson office said the choice was clear: “This government believes that the people are the masters and that the voices are respected, and Jeremy Corbyn believes that the people are the slaves and that politicians can erase the voices of the people they dislike.”

Members of parliament will return from their summer recess on September 3 and will enter a battle over exit from the union that will determine the fate of the world’s fifth-largest economy.

Johnson campaigned on the basis of Brexit, and insisted that Britain withdraw from the bloc by the end of October, prompting politicians from all walks of life to try to dissuade him.

He said on Wednesday that those trying to prevent the Brexit were involved in a “horrific form of collusion” after former finance minister Philip Hammond said parliament would prevent an exit without an agreement and the government should respect that.
