Trump Says Not Worried For Boris Johnson: "He Knows How To Win"

Lawmakers voted 328 to 301 to take control of parliamentary business in order to debate a bill on Wednesday that would prevent Johnson from taking the United Kingdom out of the European Union without a withdrawal agreement on October 31.

Johnson insisted Wednesday that talks with the European Union on a revised deal were "making substantial progress".

For now, he is unable to pursue his Brexit plan - the central focus of his leadership - or call an election that might change the situation.

If peers pass the bill it could postpone the UK's departure from the European Union until 31 January 2020, if by 19 October this year MPs have not approved a new deal or voted in favour of a no-deal exit.

Earlier in the day, lawmakers in the House of Commons approved a bill created to halt a no-deal Brexit - delivering the second setback to Johnson in as many days - he said: "There is only one way forward for the country".

Johnson received some help on Wednesday when a Scottish court refused to stop his decision to suspend Parliament.

It was put forward after rebels seized control of parliamentary business in a vote on Tuesday night. Johnson needs the support of two-thirds of the 650 lawmakers in the House of Commons to trigger an election.

Johnson retaliated and expelled from his own party all the MP's who crossed him, including Winston Churchill's grandson Nicholas Soames. To say you want a deal is quite different from saying you want a deal that isn't achievable. Conservative MP Philip Lee dramatically defected to the Liberal Democrats while Johnson was addressing Parliament.

"We stand ready to bring down the Tory government and give Scotland the chance to stop Brexit and to decide its own future", Mr Blackford said.

When asked on Wednesday if that was how he saw the Brexit negotiations with the EU, Mr Cummings told Reuters: "No".

Johnson wants it taken out of the current withdrawal agreement, telling German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron that he has an alternative. "Where are the proposals?" the Labour leader said.

The showdown between prime minister and parliament continues on Wednesday with a dizzying array of events planned including a vote on the attempt to block no deal, a vote on Johnson's election bid and weekly questions to the prime minister.

Concerned that he will be accused of cowardice, the Labour leader said he was prepared to go to the country after legislation to delay Brexit by three months has been ratified by Parliament.

Labour's Jeremy Corbyn has called for a general election nearly daily for two years, but quickly changed his tune when the government actually proposed having one, saying instead that now was not the right time.

Corbyn earlier said that his party will back an election only after a "no-deal" is completely ruled out.
