The UK’s opposition Labour Party’s Finance policy Chief and the second most powerful man, John McDonnell, crossed the wires in the last minutes saying that they will use  every mechanism they can to stop a no-deal Brexit, per Reuters.

“We are still open to calling a vote of no-confidence,” McDonnell added.

Although the Labour Party’s commitment to block a no-deal Brexit is nothing new, the British pound seems to be gathering strength on these comments. As of writing, the GBP/USD pair was up 0.08% on the day at 1.2218.
