LONDON (Reuters) - Britain’ Liberal Democrat party leader Jo Swinson said on Sunday she would not back a government led by Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn.

Asked on Sky News whether there were any circumstances in which the party could support a Corbyn-led government, Swinson said: “No, Jeremy Corbyn is not fit to be prime minister.”
