Boris plots early election to crush Labour 'while Jeremy Corbyn is still around' with aides tasked with getting Britain to the polls soon after Brexit is sorted

Boris plots early election to crush Labour 'while Jeremy Corbyn is still around' with aides tasked with getting Britain to the polls soon after Brexit is sorted The Tory frontrunner, who will become the UK's new Prime Minister next week if he defeats Jeremy Hunt in the leadership race, is said to have told aides to prepare for an election as early as next summer. The next election is not due until 2022, but the government's instability over recent months has prompted frequent speculation of an early poll. Speaking to The Times, Boris aides said the Tories wanted to exploit the 'groundwork' they had already done for a campaign against Mr Corbyn. 'There's a desire to get this done while Corbyn is still around.

MPs vote to block Boris Johnson from forcing through a no-deal Brexit

MPs vote to block Boris Johnson from forcing through a no-deal Brexit The House of Commons votes by 315 to 274 to back an amendment designed to block Boris Johnson from pursuing a no-deal Brexit. Johnson has insisted he will take Britain out of the EU on October 31 "do or die." One plan he has refused to rule out, would be to suspend parliament in the run-up to Britain's exit in order to prevent MPs from blocking a no-deal exit. However, the amendment to the Northern Ireland Bill will force members of Parliament to sit in the days running up to the end of October. A number of ministers abstained on the vote.

The president told reporters on Friday that he had spoken to the former foreign secretary on Thursday, and liked what he heard.

"I like Boris Johnson, I always have, he told reporters in Washington.

"I think we'll have a very good relationship."

Trump, who has previously accused prime minister May of making a "mess" of Britain's exit from the European Union, said he believed Johnson would improve on the "poor job" done by May.

"I think Boris will straighten it out," Trump said.

Trump said he saw similarities between Johnson and himself.

"He's a different kind of a guy, but people say that I'm a different kind of a guy too."

Trump's comments came after relations between London and Washington deteriorated following the leak of diplomatic cables from the UK's ambassador to the US which referred to Trump's administration as "inept" and "uniquely dysfunctional."

Nicola Sturgeon demands Boris Johnson agrees to new Scottish INDEPENDENCE referendum as she rages at his 'do or die' Brexit stance and says the people have a right 'to determine their own future'

Nicola Sturgeon demands Boris Johnson agrees to new Scottish INDEPENDENCE referendum as she rages at his 'do or die' Brexit stance and says the people have a right 'to determine their own future' Nicola Sturgeon demands Boris Johnson agrees to new Scottish INDEPENDENCE referendum as she rages at his 'do or die' Brexit stance and says the people have a right 'to determine their own future' after Mr Johnson became Prime Minister. In a letter to Mr Johnson she said it was now 'essential' Scotland has an alternative option to his Brexit plan 'given your public comments about leaving the EU on October 31 with or without a deal, ''come what may'' and ''do or die''. The new Prime Minister is unpopular north of the border including with many Tories.

Following the leak Trump labelled the ambassador Kim Darroch "stupid" and "wacky" and insists the White House would no longer work with him.

Darroch subsequently resigned with friends saying that Johnson's redial to publicly back him in his row with Trump as a factor in his resignation.
