Remainer MPs are plotting to bring down Boris Johnson’s government

Objective: install a ‘unity’ prime minister, and delay Brexit

Remainer Members of Parliament are considering a plan to install a “unity prime minister” to replace Boris Johnson with the sole purpose of delaying Brexit before calling a general election, according to a report.

Johnson, who has pledged to take the United Kingdom out of the European Union by October 31 with or without a deal, faces the challenge from opposition MPs and a handful of Conservative colleagues who are determined to block a no-deal Brexit, the Financial Times reported, citing several MPs involved in planning efforts.

The prime minister hopes to delay any election beyond October 31, when he expects Brexit to have been delivered.
