MPs vote to block No Deal- and PM calls for an election.

Boris Johnson said on Wednesday he would take Britain out of the European Union on Oct. 31 if he was still prime minister, proposing to hold a national election on Oct. 15.

"If I am still prime minister after Tuesday the 15th of October then we will leave on the 31st of October with, I hope, a much better deal," Johnson told parliament during a debate on whether to hold an election.

 Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn accused Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Wednesday of offering the "poison of a no deal" by calling on lawmakers to back holding an early election.

Just minutes after lawmakers approved a bill to designed to prevent Johnson from taking Britain out of the European Union without a deal on Oct. 31, Corbyn repeated his position that he would support a new poll when that bill had been made into law.

Corbyn said Wednesday's offer of an election was one containing "the poison of a no deal". "Let this bill pass and gain royal assent, then we will back an election," he said.
