Boris on verge of quitting says minister ‘He’ll NEVER ask EU for a Brexit delay’ | Politics | News

Opposition parties are in talks about how to respond to Mr Johnson’s call for a snap election on October 15, with concern about whether the poll should be delayed until after an extension has been secured to prevent a no-deal Brexit on October 31.

The cross-party bid to require a Brexit extension cleared the Commons yesterday 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.

With the prorogation of Parliament likely to happen next week, Mr Johnson will continue to pressurise Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn into agreeing to back a motion to trigger an election. 

A Downing Street spokesman said: “Boris will argue that it is now time for the people to decide after Parliament has failed them, so we can resolve this once and for all.
