Good Morning Britain hosts Adil Ray and Kate Garraway spoke to School Minister Nick Gibb about A-level results day.

But Ray and Garraway were keen to find out Gibb’s opinion on Jeremy Corbyn’s plan to delay and stop a no-deal Brexit.

Corbyn wrote to Westminster’s opposition leaders to ask for their support to stop a no-deal Brexit and get an interim government to help the country leave the European Union.

In his letter Corbyn urged: “This Government has no mandate for no deal, and the 2016 EU referendum provided no mandate for no deal.

“I therefore intend to table a vote of no confidence at the earliest opportunity when we can be confident of success.

“Following a successful vote of no confidence in the Government, I would then, as Leader of the Opposition, seek the confidence of the house for a strictly time-limited temporary government with the aim of calling a general election, and securing the necessary extension of Article 50 to do so.”

But Gibb insisted Corbyn would not manage to get the support he wanted ripping apart his plan.

He told Ray and Garraway: “A government had by Jeremy Corbyn would be an absolute disaster.”

Garraway pressed: “Are you worried it might get support? We’ve heard there are Tory MPs thinking of leaving and even joining the Lib Dems.

“Are you concerned he might get some attraction?”

“No I’m not,” Gibb hit back. “I’m very confident the government will win any confidence vote that’s put to parliament, if it’s put to parliament in the next few weeks.

“We’ve already heard other senior parliamentarians dismissing this notion Jeremy Corbyn could in any way be a figure of unity in our parliament or for our government.

“He is a divisive figure. He would be extremely damaging for the British economy, which at the moment is delivering record levels of employment and very low levels of unemployment.”

Gibb added: “So to have Jeremy Corbyn as our Prime Minister, stewarding our economy would be a catastrophe frankly for our country and that’s why his letter is not achieving the level of support he might have hoped for.”

Also, while speaking on Good Morning Britain, Gibb hit back at criticism that 55 percent earns an A in Maths A Level exams.

“To achieve 55 percent in the Maths A Level requires remarkable work over many years,” he said.

“We should be congratulating all students today on collecting their A Level results and the teachers who have taught those students over the years.”

“These grade boundaries do vary from paper to paper,” Gibb continued.

“They are set by senior examiners and they’re designed to ensure that there’s fairness between students, between years, so that an A one year is the same standard as the A in previous years. It reflects the differing standards of papers.”

Good Morning Britain airs weekdays on ITV at 6am.
