Ex-Tories who have left the party vote with Johnson to prevent Parliament taking control.
MPs kicked out of the Tory party for voting against Johnson have now sided with Johnson to block MPs to prevent him from wasting parliamentary time in the run-up to the 31 October Brexit deadline.
Opposition MPs wanted to bring an ‘SO24’ motion to allow them to take control of Commons business between now and the end of the month, in case Johnson simply marks time in the hope of tipping the UK out of the EU by default.
However, the ex-Tories have reverted to the Johnson-Cummings line that removing no-deal from the table weakens any negotiations toward a new deal.
As the prospect of ‘No confidence’ Vote reduces, the likelihood of ‘No Deal’ increases.
