Mark Drakeford 'won't take PM's assurances' on general election

No election until no-deal Brexit ruled out, MPs tell Boris Johnson

In an interview with The Times Tuesday, Nigel Farage said he would fully support the prime minister if he ditches the Brexit deal negotiated by former Prime Minister Theresa May.

Those explanations that MPs are most happy to acknowledge openly revolve around Brexit; specifically, some fear that Boris Johnson could go ahead with no deal - even if the Benn Bill has received Royal Assent - by failing to abide by the law.

Britain's opposition Labour Party will not back a vote later on Wednesday to hold an election and would ideally like to pass legislation that seeks to prevent a no-deal Brexit before backing a new parliamentary poll.

Cardiff South and Penarth MP Stephen Doughty has said on Twitter that he doesn't want an election before November, whilst Tonia Antoniazzi, Labour MP for Gower, said: "We don't want a Boris Johnson general election".

Downing Street said Mr Johnson would set out his case directly to the public on Thursday, claiming that Mr Corbyn wants to "surrender" to Brussels by "begging" for a delay beyond the October 31 Brexit deadline.

President Barack Obama, curbed Iran's nuclear work in exchange for the lifting of most worldwide sanctions in 2016. Tehran has announced a decision to further scale down its commitments to the landmark 2015 nuclear deal.

"The casual manner in which Mr Johnson has been willing to use dog-whistle politics in some of his Telegraph columns is frankly unworthy of somebody in the highest office in the land".

Mr Corbyn was earlier dealt a hammer blow by his own Labour Party MPs after they warned they will not allow him to fight a general election before Brexit on October 31 - raising further questions over the confidence they have in their leader.

Totally 40 per cent of these polled stated Boris Johnson would make the most effective Prime Minister, versus lower than a fifth - simply 18 per cent - who favoured the Labour chief.

They hoped forcing Mr Corbyn to wait until after the current Brexit date of October 31 would force the Prime Minister into an election campaign having failed to get the United Kingdom out of the European Union by the date he had always promised.

The first minister said he was "instinctively not attracted" to electoral pacts, saying "people who want to vote for the Labour Party can know that there will be a Labour Party candidate there for them to vote for".
