- Parliament will vote later today on a bill that would force Johnson to delay Britain’s EU exit until January 31, unless Parliament approves a new deal or votes to support a no deal Brexit by October 19 according to DW reporting
- Even if the bill passes, any extension to the departure date would also require the approval of the remaining 27 EU member-states — who have said that the UK must provide a valid reason for delaying.
- The prime minister is expected to call a general election, which would require the approval of two-thirds of parliament, if he loses the vote — but the opposition might resist this call.
- Johnson withdrew the Conservative Party whip from 21 MPs after they rebelled to allow the bill onto the parliamentary voting agenda.
