Prime Minister Boris Johnson ' s plans to lead the United Kingdom out of the European Union are in crisis. His proposal to hold a snap election before the MPs also passed a bill blocking the possibility of a ' no - deal ' exit from the EU. This means Johnson may have to go back to the EU to ask for an

Labour will not support Boris Johnson’s snap election plan - because he could use it to ram through a no-deal Brexit, a senior ally of Jeremy Corbyn has revealed.

Shadow Northern Ireland secretary Tony Lloyd became the first shadow cabinet minister to confirm that Corbyn will not ‘fall for’ the PM’s ‘trick’ on timing of any polling day.

Ahead of a crunch vote in the Commons on Tuesday that could see rebels take control of the parliamentary timetable, Lloyd’s words are a major boost to the anti-no-deal group of cross-party MPs.

Johnson vows to 'step up the tempo' of Brexit talks

Johnson vows to 'step up the tempo' of Brexit talks Boris Johnson has said Brexit talks with the European Union will be stepped up in the coming weeks in a bid to secure a new deal. The prime minister's lead negotiator, David Frost, met EU officials this week and agreed to "intensify talks". Downing Street said the initial discussions showed the two sides remain some distance apart on key issues. However, Mr Johnson said he was "encouraged" by the reaction from EU leaders in recent weeks and said it was "now time for both sides to step up the tempo".

Corbyn criticised the fact that Johnson was not in the house, and other MPs then questioned why the government had no-one on the front bench to respond to MPs will likely refuse to allow an election until Johnson commits to honouring the bill that will prevent a no - deal , which he has refused to do.

Mr Johnson again flatly ruled out an election alliance with the Brexit Party today, saying the only way of securing a break from the EU was to back the Boris Johnson has insisted he will never grant a second Scottish independence referendum - amid fears Jeremy Corbyn has done a back room deal

“Will we fall for Boris Johnson’s trick, no we won’t. Boris Johnson is a man who has got form for reneging on his promises.”

Senior government sources confirmed that the PM had on Monday discussed with the cabinet the option of calling an election for October 14.

A snap election motion would be tabled if MPs succeeded in getting a Commons takeover,  they said.

Under the FTPA, a two-thirds Commons majority is needed to trigger any poll earlier than the five-year period set out in legislation.

But critics fear Johnson will change the date of any election to after exit date on October 31. Several shadow ministers made the point at their meeting in Salford on Monday and the party’s whips were inundated with MPs making a similar point.

Asked by HuffPost if he would vote for a general election if PM tabled a motion this week, Labour veteran Hilary Benn replied: “I won’t vote for anything that facilitates a no-deal Brexit on October 31.”

Tony Blair had declared on Monday that Corbyn would improve his standing if he avoided the ‘elephant trap’ of an election that was called by Johnson.

Lloyd added: “We will not have Boris Johnson dictating the terms of an election, which crashes this country out with a new deal Brexit, we will in fact work through the parliamentary process to make sure that this law is passed.

“Obviously once we can guarantee that we we pass October 31st and don’t have a no-deal Brexit, of course we want an election.  Of course we want a fight around health, of course want a fight around education, we’re not frightened of an election.

“We’re not prepared to let the tactics of Boris Johnson destroy the strategy for this whole country have a decent future in the future that is inconsistent with that crash out no-deal Brexit.”

“He doesn’t want to fight and we don’t want to fight an election  which allows Boris Johnson to crash us out with a no deal, of course we want an election following on from that. Bring it on.”

Will the CIA’s Former Top Spy Fall Prey to Putin’s Murderous Mole Hunt?.
The Kremlin is painting a target on the back of a former insider who reportedly was a key CIA source before the agency “exfiltrated” him from Russia to the United States in July 2017. The Russian daily Kommersant published a name and biography on Tuesday of a man living under his own name with his wife and children near Washington, D.C. In the process, the newspaper may have opened the door to any number of potential assassins, not all of whom could be traced directly to the Kremlin. As an ethical matter, The Daily Beast has decided not to publish the name or address of the alleged spy.
