MPs aim to stop a no-deal Brexit on October 31

Johnson ready to call a snap general election

Rebel Conservative MPs are set to join forces with opposition parties on Tuesday to try to push legislation through the UK parliament that would aim to stop a no-deal Brexit on October 31. A so-called rebel alliance — comprising Labour and most other opposition parties plus about 20 Conservative MPs — wants to secure parliamentary approval for a bill that would require Britain to seek a Brexit delay beyond Halloween if prime minister Boris Johnson fails to sign a withdrawal agreement with the EU.*

Mr Johnson is strongly opposed to the MPs’ initiative, and the prime minister on Monday signalled that if the rebels win the day, he is ready to call a snap general election.
