LONDON (Reuters) – British Prime Minister Theresa May is leading a zombie government, opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said on Wednesday before a no confidence vote in parliament.

Corbyn said the government should call a new election after May’s Brexit deal was rejected by a large margin on Tuesday.

“If a government cannot get its legislation through parliament, it must got to the country for a new mandate,” he told parliament. “There can be no doubt that this is indeed a zombie government.”
