Election within days? Speculation mounts as PM warns Tory rebels over vote

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said Monday that he doesn't want an election amid the Brexit crisis and issued a rallying cry to lawmakers to back him in securing a Brexit deal

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said Monday that he doesn't want an election amid the Brexit crisis and issued a rallying cry to lawmakers to back him in securing a Brexit deal

Prime Minister Boris Johnson is issuing an ultimatum to members of his own party: vote for my Brexit plan or you're out.

If they do that and pass their bill, Langfitt adds, "we actually think that Boris Johnson is going to do what he just said he wouldn't do and doesn't want to do - he'll nearly have no choice but to call an election and take this back to the people".

In the parliamentary chess game, the default position is that Britain will leave on October 31 without a deal unless a divorce agreement is struck with the bloc and ratified by the British parliament or legislation is passed to delay or revoke the departure notice. "He believes that the public wants is for him to deliver Brexit on October 31".

Opposition MPs are set to launch a last-ditch legislative bid to force the government to delay Brexit this week, with efforts given fresh urgency by the controversial suspension of parliament from next week.

David Gauke, a former justice secretary and key member of the group of Conservative rebels, accused the Prime Minister of taking a "confrontational" approach.

The aim is for the bill to have gained royal assent by Sunday night to be assured the law is in place before Mr Johnson prorogues Parliament as early as Monday.

He said the chances of striking a divorce deal with Brussels "have been rising" ahead of a summit of European Union leaders on October 17 and 18, but warned this was partly because the bloc understood he was willing to walk away.

Speaking outside No 10, Mr Johnson said such a move would make further talks with the European Union on a new deal "impossible".

"There are no circumstances under which I will ask Brussels to delay", said Johnson. "We will not accept any attempt to go back on our promises".

The recording artist has had several run-ins with the law and in January 2014, he was arrested for DUI in Miami Beach, Florida. At the end of his post, he spoke about how God had blessed him 'with extraordinary people who love me for me'.

Rebels have been told that if they vote in favor of the emergency no-deal legislation on Tuesday, they will be thrown out of the parliamentary party and barred from standing as a Conservative at any future election.

But Education Minister Gavin Williamson backed Mr. Johnson's hardline stance and said it was necessary.

While the British leader said he did not want an election, a senior government source said lawmakers should be aware it would be a outcome of their decision to vote against the government on Tuesday. Johnson last week announced Parliament would besuspended for over a month shortly after it reconvenes.

The ex-PM warned on Monday that Mr Johnson could win such a vote as "some may fear a Corbyn premiership more" than a no-deal Brexit.

On Tuesday afternoon, a cross-party group of MPs will seek to take control of the parliamentary timetable in order to allocate time on Wednesday to debate their draft law blocking "no deal".

But Johnson fuelled speculation that his government could simply decide not to abide by the bill if it does pass, saying there were "no circumstances in which I will ask Brussels to delay" beyond 31 October.

People take part to a demonstration against British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, in London, Monday, Sept. 2, 2019. They include senior Conservative politicians such as former Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond, the official Labour opposition, and smaller opposition parties.

"When a prime minister who hasn't won an election and who doesn't have a majority decrees that Parliament will be shut down because he knows his plan for a disastrous no deal doesn't have the votes, we say that is an attack on democracy, which will be resisted", Corbyn said.
