Boris Johnson vows to seek election after parliamentary defeat by Brexit rebels

After election threat, British lawmakers begin no-deal Brexit showdown

"We are negotiating a deal and I am confident of getting a deal".

A general election, which Johnson's aides say he wants for October 14, would be the third in just four years for Britons.

Earlier, ministers sought to describe the cross-party bill as a "surrender bill".

It they are suspended from the party, it would prevent them from standing as Conservatives in the general election.

The Times's editorial is more circumspect about who is to blame for the chaos in the House of Commons.

The removal of the slew of rebel MPs comes hours after the Government lost its majority when Dr Phillip Lee, formerly a Conservative MP, crossed the floor to sit with the Liberal Democrats while Mr Johnson was speaking. Mr Farage has insisted the Brexit Party and Conservative Party's combined strength would make them an "unstoppable" force. If they succeeded, Johnson should, in theory, have to step down and let the victor form a government.

"We deeply value our economic relationship with the United Kingdom given its favorable business climate, characterised by transparency, regulatory stability, respect for the rule of law, and a longstanding commitment to worldwide collaboration", the groups said. The pound sterling fell as low as $1.1960 on Tuesday, down about a cent on the day before, stabilizing around $1.1990.

Fears of a "no-deal" Brexit were rising elsewhere.

Speaking for the first time since Archie was born in May, Thomas, 75, told the Mail On Sunday: "Of course I'm disappointed not to see Archie".

The heightened political tension sent the British pound tumbling on Tuesday to its lowest level against the dollar in nearly three years. Economists warn that trade would be disrupted by tariffs and customs checks between Britain and the bloc.

In an open letter signed by some of the biggest lobby groups in the western world, representing more than 4m companies from eight countries, the organisations said they had "grave concerns" about the rising chance of a no-deal departure on 31 October. Preventing a so-called no-deal Brexit has always been an aspiration of remainers in Parliament, but opposed by Brexiteers as it ties the government's hands in negotiations with Brussels.

"It would destroy any possibility of a negotiation", he said in parliament on Tuesday. "But the lingering doubt they've got is: Will the shenanigans in Parliament somehow lead to the cancellation or the delay of Brexit?"

They're desperate to get a deal, but not so desperate that they are going to accept terms that cause chaos in Northern Ireland, politically and economically, and will shatter the normal rules that hold together single market and customs union, on which they are based.

In an historic showdown between prime minister and parliament, Johnson's opponents said they wanted to prevent him playing Russian roulette with a country once touted as a confident pillar of Western economic and political stability.

Johnson has told French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel he could come up with a better alternative to the main sticking point in the stalled Brexit negotiations - the deadlock on the Irish border question.

"It is wrong to say that the opposition to him is trying to reverse the referendum, a very large percentage of those who have been defeating him in the last few days are prepared to vote for Brexit, they voted for Brexit more often that he has, he caused delay in March and April, when we wished to do so on satisfactory terms".
