'Labour will vote against any Brexit deal produced by Theresa May and is ready to fight an election before Christmas, a senior ally of Jeremy Corbyn warns today.
Shadow foreign secretary Emily Thornberry said it was clear a workable deal was 'just not going to happen' with Mrs May in charge.
Ms Thornberry's warning makes explicit a threat from Labour to vote down the deal and narrows further the PM's hopes of getting a deal through Parliament.
Without opposition support, just a handful of Brexiteer rebels will consign Mrs May to humiliating and possible terminal defeat.
The Labour warning comes amid a fierce Brexit backlash against Bank of England Governor Mark Carney for his briefing on the risks of no deal.
Jacob Rees-Mogg, the influential chairman of Brexiteer Tory MPs, accused Mr Carney of behaving like a 'screaming banshee' for outlining a scenario for ministers where house prices plunge by a third.
Overnight Brexit champion Boris Johnson re-emerged from a storm over his personal life to renew his calls for a clean break from Brussels.
Sources close to Mr Corbyn made clear there was no shift in Labour's position, which has always made the party's support for a deal dependant on six tests.
Shadow Brexit Secretary Sir Keir Starmer said in July Mrs May's Chequers proposals would fail the tests - a clear signal Labour would whip against the deal.'
