Boris Johnson will seek to trigger a general election on  October 15 – if Labour and rebel Tories succeed in blocking a no-deal Brexit.

At Prime Minister’s Questions, he challenged Jeremy Corbyn to put his policy of “dither and delay” over EU withdrawal to the British people.

In a report, the BBC said Mr. Johnson needs the support of two-thirds of MPs to trigger an election.

Labour said it won’t back a poll – until a delay to the 31 October Brexit deadline is set.
