The UK’s Prime Minister has lost a key Brexit vote as members of parliament opposed to no deal take control of House of Commons business.

MPs voted to take control of the Commons agenda tomorrow, paving the way for a bill designed to block Boris Johnson from taking the UK out of the European Union without a deal.

In a statement immediately after the vote, the Prime Minister accused parliament of being on the “brink of wrecking any deal” the UK might be able to strike in Brussels. Mr Johnson indicated that he would call for a general election if MPs vote tomorrow to force him to seek a delay to Brexit.

Earlier in the day the government lost its working majority in the Commons, when the Conservative Dr Philip Lee defected to the Liberal Democrats in protest at the government’s approach.

  1. We have nothing if we don't have democracy and this issue is bigger than brexit. Parliament was created to represent the people and it has defied the people's referendum vote. I am sick of their traitorous voices and I implore people to remove these traitors from their cosy jobs at the next election no matter what party you support.

  2. For me, the only benefit of the whole Brexit disaster is watching the Tory Party tearing itself apart. Hee Hee! Keep it up guys and gals, it’s just fine! I have to laugh though when people think this is something new; the Tories have been deeply divided on Europe ever since the days of Harold Macmillan over 60 years ago – fatally divided, as it turns out. But if the Tories are in disarray, then so are the Labour Party under Comrade Corbyn and the Lib-Dems (remember them?) under the ghastly Ms Swinson. In fact, the whole of British politics is undergoing a long-overdue and cathartic shake up. This is perhaps another unexpected benefit of Brexit, otherwise a thoroughly BAD idea in every single way.

  3. The BBC has a DAILY knock at Brexit. Jeremy Vine show and the daily news are so bias towards remain. They are relentless in this, and we deserve better, because we have got to pay there wages through the licence fee, but are only getting middle class liberal London bias!

  4. SHUT UP !🔇 YES CLOSE YOUR MOUTH ! 🔇….

    THE MORNING YOU GO TO HAVE TO POOP BEFORE YOU GO YOUR WORKS…

  5. Kuenssberg says it may be too late for pm to find a way to leave EU by 31/10. like so much in life it may seem impossible to many people, but to the English it is very very simple.

  6. Oh dear oh dear Boris – things getting worse by the day old son !
    Now have to release documents obtaining to Brexit and yellow hammer
    Unfortunately upset some very influential and bright Tory stalwarts

  7. enough talking. an armed cililian army can and must be mobilised to storm the capital and suspend parliament until freedom and democracy are restored. the weak and the chattering classes fear pain and violence and will quickly fold. Her Majesty's armed forces are prepared to fall in behind the movement.

  8. PARLIMENT cannot defeat the people…the heart and soul of the British electorate left three years ago …..LEGALLY AS PER THE PEOPLES BRITISH DEMOCRATIC VOTE …..PARLIAMENT CANNOT MAKE US RECOGNISE THE EU …..WE DONT WANT SOMETHING WHICH IS NOT A PATCH ON TRUE BRITISH DEMOCRACY …..EVEN JUNKER SAID THE EU WASNT DEMOCRATIC…….
    WE LEFT 3 years ago 🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧

  9. For Gods Sake will this stupid Tory Government realise they have to take up Nigel Farage’s offer of a pact.
    Even the schoolgirl Jo Swinton has worked out if you collaborate against a divided force, “YOU WIN”.

    If the Tory Party collaborated with Nigel it would be a a landslide!
    If they don’t Corbyn will slip in through the back door!

    What the hell is wrong with you Boris?
    300 Tory seats, and 100 Brexit Party seats plus the DUP, certainly looks a lot better, than -22 seat minority Party.
    You then get a No deal Brexit and the EU comes grovelling on their knees to do a great deal for Britain!
    The EU is facing the perfect Storm ( recession in Germany, French production in tatters, Italy needing a 3 Trillion Bailout, French Banks up to their knees in toxic Italian bad debt, devastation when Trump enacts a 25% import tax on EU (German) Cars! The Euro under pressure.
    And with their mad Federal Policy, that will cost a fortune, er an EU Army god help them! And just about to lose their 2nd biggest Customer … the UK.
    If they don’t do a great deal with us they are finished financially.

    You just watch how the Germans vote when they taste recession! Remember germany has had plain sailing for decades, they dont even know how to spell redundancy!

    BORIS WAKE UP AND SMELL THE MUSTARD … YOU NEED TO DO A DEAL WITH NIGEL.
    IF YOU DON’T do a deal with Farage, YOU WILL GO DOWN AS THE MAN WHO COMPLETELY SCREWED UP BREXIT, CRUCIFIED BRITAIN FINANCIALLY AND let Corbyn in, AND DESTROYED THE TORY PARTY FOR EVER.

    ITS A NO BRAINER!

  10. British sovereignty is hanging by a thread. The number of people who either fail to realize this, or that simply don't care, it frightening. There was a vote, and the British people voted to leave the EU. To defy the will of the people is fascist.

  11. Canada is with you. We're making the exact same mistakes with flooding our country with immigrants from the third world and watching out prosperity die. First Brexit, then Trump, Canada is about to get it's soul back as Trudeau will be defeated soon. Stay strong!

  12. Britain saved Europe from the clutches of totalitarianism with blood of it's sons multiple times. Now, Germany and France shall punish insolence of this sorry island, and it shall be delivered into bondage of federal EU. Tis shall be future of Britannia, to be ruled by the people they shall not choose or have power over with. And to know and feel consequences if they claim otherwise.

    Good boy shall will dress up his own shackles.

  13. LEAVE MEANS LEAVE, it doesn't mean extend or linger, fuck the EU and the pathetic Remoaners AND the simpering spinless politician's that only wanna extend, Boris is totally correct on this we need to show a strong UNITED front.
    At the moment all this bickering just shows were splintered and damn well weak.
