Juncker warns British PM Johnson of disastrous consequences of no-deal Brexit

  • Britain's Prime Minister Boris Johnson meets with King Abdullah II of Jordan in London

Earlier this month, the Sunday Telegraph said Dominic Cummings, Johnson's senior adviser, had told ministers that the prime minister could schedule a new election after the October 31 Brexit deadline if he lost a vote of no confidence.

Britain's opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn speaks during a rally calling for a general election in London, Britain July 25,2019.

The move comes amid reports Mr Johnson could seek to hang on long enough to ensure Britain is out of the European Union before going to the polls if he is defeated in a vote of confidence when MPs return in September.

He went on to say: "The extreme no-deal Brexit can be stopped".

Labour has said any MP wishing to stop a no-deal Brexit should give their backing to Jeremy Corbyn's bid to form a government.

Corbyn has taken to twitter after writing a letter to Sir Mark Sedwill, the cabinet secretary, accusing Johnson of plotting an "unprecedented, unconstitutional and anti-democratic abuse of power".

At least 12 people had suffered injuries in an explosion at an ammunition depot in the Krasnoyarsk region on Tuesday. Contacted by telephone by RFE/RL , one pharmacy in Severodvinsk reported being sold out of iodine as of August 8.

As it stands, under the latest extension to the Article 50 withdrawal process by the EU, Britain is due to leave on 31 October.

In his letter, Corbyn demanded clarification of the rules around 'purdah, ' the specific period of time during an election campaign in the United Kingdom when the government is precluded from making major policy announcements.

Three years ago the Conservative Party should have elected a Prime Minister who believed in the great opportunities of Brexit.

If Mr Johnson is defeated in a no-confidence motion he would have 14 days, under the Fixed Term Parliaments Act, to win another vote of confidence or, if no other government could be formed, face a general election.

Johnson has threatened to let the United Kingdom crash out of the European Union on the date of Brexit, Oct. 31, unless the bloc agrees to scrap the Irish border backstop, whereby in the event of a no-deal Brexit the border between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland would remain open, and Northern Ireland would remain under the European Union customs and regulatory system.
