Sadiq Khan has warned Labour MPs not to allow Theresa May to “blackmail” them into voting for any “bad deal” she reaches with the European Union in the Brexit negotiations.

Accusing the prime minister of attempting to “railroad” MPs in the Commons into passing her deal, he said Ms May was presenting a “false choice” between her negotiations, or no deal at all.

It follows reports that multiple Labour MPs are prepared to support Ms May’s Brexit agreement if the alternative is Britain crashing out of the bloc – even if Jeremy Corbyn orders his party to vote against the Tories’ deal.
