MPs vote on bill to prevent no-deal Brexit on October 31

Political Editor

MPs have seized control of the Commons agenda and are in the midst of debating and voting on a bill to block any chance of a no-deal Brexit on October 31st.

Boris Johnson says he won’t ask Brussels for a delay  and he won’t resign to trigger an October election.

But if the Opposition forces the bill through the Commons, he will ask MPs to vote for just that.

And he’s accused Jeremy Corbyn of being “frit and chicken” after Labour said they wouldn’t support an election unless there was no chance of no deal.

Rarely has there been a day quite like this in Westminster.
