Johnson threatened members of Parliament with a potential election Tuesday if they move to pass a bill forcing his government to ask European Union leaders for an extension if he is unable to strike a Brexit deal.

Rory Stewart, who was among those stripped of the Tory whip, branded the decision on Wednesday morning as "astonishing" adding it was something "you associate with other countries" rather than Britain.

Parliament returned to session for the first time since the prime minister moved to suspend the lawmaking body, beginning around September 9 and leaving it in recess until October 14 - or for more than half the weeks remaining before Johnson's deadline.

"I can confirm that we are tonight tabling a motion under the Fixed Term Parliament Act".

"If the Labour Party and their allies, the Liberal Democrats, Scottish National Party and renegade Conservatives, try to stop Brexit, then the Prime Minister is quite right to say that the only option is a general election".

It's after party rebels and opposition MPs defeated the government in the first stage of their attempt to pass a law created to block a no-deal Brexit.

Sir Nicholas Soames had the Conservative Party whip removed after rebelling against Boris Johnson.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has lost his majority in the House of Commons after one of his MPs defected to another party, citing Johnson's "aggressive" and "unprincipled" approach to Brexit.

The source said the motion would be published before MPs vote on Tuesday so they would know the consequences of voting against the Government.

On Monday, he sought to scare off a rebellion by letting it be known he would push for a snap general election if MPs succeed in their bid to seize control of parliamentary proceedings.

"No deal sounds good if you say it quickly but it's actually going to lead to years of uncertainty, a lot of division, and it won't create a stable foundation for our future so we've got to do this properly". Most of the rebels back Brexit in principle, but won't allow Johnson to leave without a deal.

"The party I joined in 1992 is not the party I am leaving today", said Dr Lee, a supporter of a Final Say referendum on Brexit, he was quoted to have said.

Soames has been in Parliament for 37 years and said he has only voted against his party three times. The public do not want an election.

Tweets posted today by the studio say "until now, the only thing we said about multi was that it was in R&D". It was an idea, a thought that there was no real form commitment to.
