British PM Johnson demands October 15 election after defeat over Brexit
[DAWN] British Prime Minister Boris Johnson
...pro-Brexit British prime minister, succeeding no-Brexit Theresa May. BoJo is noted as much for his sparkling personality and his hair as for his Conservative policies....
on Wednesday demanded an October 15 snap election after politicians seeking to prevent a no-deal Brexit dealt him a humiliating defeat in parliament which he cast as an attempt to surrender to the Europe
...the land mass occupying the space between the English Channel and the Urals, also known as Moslem Lebensraum...
an Union.

Parliament's move leaves Brexit up in the air, with possible outcomes ranging from a turbulent no-deal exit to abandoning the whole endeavour ‐ both outcomes would be unacceptable to swathes of the United Kingdom's voters.

An alliance of opposition politicians backed by 21 rebels from Johnson's Conservative Party defeated the government on Tuesday on a motion allowing them to try to pass a law which would force a three-month extension to Britannia's EU exit date.

Johnson cast the rebellion as an attempt to surrender to the EU, vowed never to delay Brexit beyond Oct 31 and challenged opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn to agree to an Oct 15 election.

"Can I invite the leader of the opposition to confirm, when he stands up shortly, that if that surrender bill is passed, he will allow the people of this country to have their view on what he is proposing to hand over in their name with an election on October the 15th," Johnson told parliament.

However,
today is that tomorrow you were thinking about yesterday...
needing the backing of two-thirds of politicians, Johnson's bid for an election is set to be initially thwarted as opposition parties are united in wanting to prevent a no-deal Brexit before agreeing to a vote.

Johnson said his strategy was to get a Brexit deal by an EU summit on Oct 17 and "get Brexit done". He said the British government was making substantial progress and would succeed in removing the Irish border backstop.

#1 MP's demanding a EUSSR deal just do not want to leave.

Simple as that.

If they prevent the UK regaining sovereignty to a deal with someone who wants to keep the loot from the UK the EUSSR just has to keep offering terrible deals.

Treasonous MP's know this.

May they find themselves having one last taxpayer funded trip. In a tumbrel.

#2 Maybe I've missed something; but I thought that the EU said they wouldn't negotiate any further...so if Oct. 31 comes and goes, isn't Britain out no matter what?

#3 Yes but I'm pretty sure the EU will grant an extension if elections are held.
