GENERAL ELECTION: Brexiteers Add Their Names To Labour Campaign

GENERAL ELECTION: Brexiteers Add Their Names To Labour Campaign

What happens next after Boris Johnson's defeat?

Despite a sense of public irritation with being asked to go to the polls so regularly, the poll revealed an unlikely majority in favour of an October general election, with 46 per cent in favour and 36 per cent against.

The cross-party bid to require a Brexit extension cleared the Commons on Wednesday and, after a deal struck in the early hours of Thursday, the Tories have agreed not to attempt to talk it out in the Lords.

Boris Johnson is calling on MPs to back his plan to hold an early general election on 15 October.

"Jeremy Corbyn has said that if you give the bill Royal Assent, we will vote for an election".

It comes after MPs backed a bill to block a no-deal Brexit if the PM hasn't agreed a plan with the European Union ahead of the 31 October deadline.

He also acknowledged there were splits in the party about the timing of a general election, saying that the leadership was in contact with legal experts and other opposition parties about what to do.

In a speech today, Mr Johnson will repeat his claim that the legislation is a "surrender Bill" and stress that he will not seek a delay to Brexit.

But speaking at a news conference ahead of a recall of the Welsh Assembly to discuss Brexit, First Minister Mark Drakeford supported the opinion of his Welsh Labour colleagues but would not be drawn on the exact date of an election. "The obvious conclusion, I'm afraid, is that he does not think he will win".

Chancellor Sajid Javid told the broadcaster he was "sad to see 21 colleagues, 21 Conservatives no longer carrying the Conservative whip, of course I am, these are my friends, these are good people".

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said he would not agree to a General Election until a bill preventing a no deal Brexit was passed.
