British Prime Minister Boris Johnson faces a showdown in Parliament later today, as MPs aim to take control of the agenda, to stop a ‘no-deal’ Brexit.

A number of MPs have come together across party political lines, in a fresh bid to stop a ‘no-deal’ Brexit, after Mr Johnson vowed to leave the EU with or without a deal on 31st October.

When Parliament reconvenes this afternoon after recess, they are expected to put forward legislation under ‘Standing Order 24’ – which is a rule that allows urgent debates to be heard.

The Government has warned that the Prime Minister would push for a General Election on October 14th, if the government loses the vote on the debate.
Meanwhile, Jeremy Corbyn has said, the Labour Party is ready for a General Election.
