What a mess. The Tories lead in the polls, but not by a comfortable margin.

David Cameron did not support Brexit.

Brexit is dead.

Parliament defeats Boris Johnson to take control of Brexit process

U.K.'s Parliament voted 328-301 on Tuesday night to take control of the legislative agenda in an effort to stop Prime Minister Boris Johnson from forcing through a no-deal Brexit on Oct. 31.

Why it matters: The lawmakers who voted in favor of the motion include a number of high-profile rebels in Johnson's own Conservative Party. They were stripped of their affiliation after the vote. Parliament on Wednesday will vote on a bill to force Johnson to seek a Brexit extension from the European Union. Operating under the assumption that the bill will pass, Johnson said he will introduce a motion tonight to dissolve Parliament and hold a general election an Oct. 14.

Whether that vote to hold an election will receive the necessary two-thirds majority remains to be seen, however, as the Labour Party may oppose the effort in order to ensure that a no-deal Brexit is taken off the table completely.

Between the lines: The 21 Conservatives who voted against the government and have been expelled from the party include 8 former Cabinet ministers and the grandson of Winston Churchill. Together, they have served for a total of 350 years as Conservative MPs. Ken Clarke, who has been an MP since 1970, has served under 4 prime ministers and is known as the "Father of the House."

The bottom line: It was a devastating day for Boris Johnson. He lost his first vote as prime minister and saw his working majority drop from +1 to -22.

Bojo’s Tories lead poll ahead of vote

LONDON — British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Conservative Party holds a 16-point lead over the opposition Labour Party ahead of a parliamentary vote on Monday on whether to hold a snap general election, according to a new poll.

Support for the Conservative Party rose three points since a previous poll eight days ago to stand at 40%, while Labour was unchanged on 24%, the poll shows.

The pro-european Union Liberal Democrat Party slipped one point to 15% while Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party, which could challenge the Conservatives for the support of Brexit backers, was on 10%.

Johnson, elected by party members in July to break the deadlock over Brexit, has proposed holding an election on

Dec. 12 after he failed to get a divorce deal through parliament in time for the country to leave the European Union on Oct. 31.

Lawmakers will vote on Monday on whether to hold the snap election but most opposition parties have indicated they will either abstain or vote against the move, meaning Johnson is unlikely to secure the support of two-thirds of lawmakers that he needs.

Meanwhile, two of Britain’s smaller political parties have joined forces to try to trigger a Dec. 9 election and have written to Donald Tusk, the president of the European Council, to ask for a delay to Brexit to hold it.

In a letter the Scottish National Party and the Liberal Democrats, both big supporters of remaining in the European Union, asked Tusk to agree to a Brexit extension until Jan. 31.

Most opposition parties including the SNP and Liberal Democrats have opposed Johnson’s proposal for a December 12 election, but the two parties signalled on Saturday they could back a December election if it was separated from the Brexit legislation.

“We believe this is the only way to unlock what has become a deadlocked Parliament and to enable the UK and the EU to move forward — whatever form that takes,” they said. Media reports said they favored a Dec. 9 election.

The main opposition Labour Party has said it will back an election once the risk of a potentially chaotic no-deal Brexit has been ruled out but the party is divided as it trails Johnson’s Conservatives in opinion polls.

I hope Nigel Farage doesn't indirectly get the anti Brexit side elected to government.

I was just reading that Farage would pull many candidates in constituencies where they would divide vote such that labor would win

Those certain Farage's party would remain and vote with Johnson ... which would make a deal certain and even a good chance for a no deal Brexit ... A deal with future repercussions ..... after Brexit is done

Cant remember where - if I find it I'll - GOT IT!!!

Nigel Farage's Brexit Party May Pull Out Of 100s Of Races In Surprise Deal With Conservatives

It's simple political arithmetic. If two pro-Brexit candidates run in the same district, they risk splitting the vote and handing the race to Labour or another opposition MP. Pollsters have reportedly been warning both Johnson and Farage about the possibility that, without a deal, Jeremy Corbyn would be PM before Christmas.

And that's something nobody can live with.

Still, Brexit Party insiders insisted a deal could create complications for Farage, who is coming in hot after his party's stellar performance during the EU Parliamentary races back in May, and is facing pressure to quickly replicate that success. Ironically, those MEPs would all need to vacate their seats once Brexit has been delivered

................. Don't see any of this on skynews

Farage's party will be coming into the December election hot after it's success in the Euro election earlier in the year. I wondered if they would work with the Tories now they have a leader who is pro Brexit.

It's election day in the UK. If BJ gets a majority, it's bye bye EU. If there is any other result expect delays and eventually a second Brexit referendum.

If BJ does get a majority, I would like to see Canada and the US offer a comprehensive free trade deal with the UK. One that is about mutually beneficial trade and does not cede sovereignty like membership in the EU.

That could take many years.
