LONDON: Britain's parliament needs to be recalled immediately to discuss Brexit, the opposition Labour Party's finance spokesman John McDonnell said on Monday , after leaked official documents forecast possible food, fuel, and medicine shortages.

McDonnell, the Labour Party's second most powerful man, said that the looming crisis demanded parliament's summer break be brought to an early end. Labour, which is opposed to a no-deal exit, wants to bring down Johnson's government and form its own emergency coalition under Corbyn's leadership to delay Brexit.

"I don't see how he could lead a government of national unity," Dominic Grieve, a rebel lawmaker from Johnson's ruling Conservative Party, told the BBC, adding that other people could lead such a government.
