No confidence vote in Boris Johnson’s leadership could happen this week

Opposition parties join together to prevent a no-deal Brexit

Boris Johnson could face a vote of confidence in his leadership as early as this week as opposition parties join together to prevent a no-deal Brexit. An interim government potentially led by Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn could then takeover and secure a further Brexit extension, according to a senior MP for the Scottish National Party.

Stewart Hosie said the controversial plan was the only way to guarantee the UK does not ‘crash out’ of the EU on October 31 without an arrangement. Earlier this month, MPs forced through a law which compels Johnson to seek an extension to Brexit unless he agrees a deal by October 19 or secures Parliament’s approval to leave without an agreement.
