GENERAL ELECTION: Brexiteers Add Their Names To Labour Campaign

GENERAL ELECTION: Brexiteers Add Their Names To Labour Campaign GENERAL ELECTION: Brexiteers Add Their Names To Labour Campaign

MPs have rejected an early general election as Boris Johnson suffered two defeats in a day.

He hammered home the message that his government would take the United Kingdom out of the European Union (EU) on October 31, adding "we are preparing for a no-deal Brexit if we absolutely must".

The Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn compared Mr Johnson's offer of an election as being like an offer of an apple to Snow White from the Wicked Queen - accompanied by the poison of a no-deal.

Jeremy Corbyn insists that he will not back a new election until the law to stop a no-deal Brexit is passed.

Boris Johnson clashed with Jeremy Corbyn at PMQs.

Johnson, whose government has lost its majority after he axed 21 lawmakers from his party, wants to hold a snap election to shake up parliament, which is deeply divided over Brexit and rejected his predecessor Theresa May's exit deal with the European Union three times.

Senior figures including shadow Brexit Secretary Sir Keir Starmer, joined by Liberal Democrat leader Jo Swinson, voiced fears that calling an election before an extension to the Article 50 period is implemented left the door open to a no-deal Brexit at the end of October.

"We have also received a commitment from the chief whip in the House of Commons that Commons consideration of any Lords amendments will take place on Monday and it is the Government's intention that the Bill be ready for Royal Assent", he told peers.

But Labour refused to back an election while no deal was still a possibility.

"In my view, and in the view of this government, there must now be an election on Tuesday 15 October".

He said: "Let the Bill pass and have Royal Assent and then we can have a general election".

The bill had the support of the Tory rebels and most opposition parties but it had the support of the DUP and Kate Hoey.

The Prime Minister added: "By contrast, everyone will know that if I am Prime Minister, I will go to Brussels, I will go for a deal and get a deal but if they won't do a deal we will leave anyway on 31 October".
