Labor Party eyes vote of no confidence to remove PM Boris Johnson

It revealed that 44% agree that Mr Johnson "needs to deliver Brexit by any means, including suspending Parliament if necessary, in order to prevent MPs from stopping it". Britain is on the verge of a constitutional crisis as the Brexit impasse rolls on - the House of Commons has so far voted down Theresa May's withdrawal agreement three times.

However the default position remans if a deal can not be reached with Brussels, Britain will exit the bloc without an agreement on Halloween.

"It will not be lost on Jeremy Corbyn as he contemplates attempting to call a vote of no confidence that Boris could win an election with barely a third of the vote because support is so fragmented across all the parties".

"Boris's support has been boosted by him outperforming expectations, including among a third of Labour and Lib Dem voters".

The report found it will be hard for MPs to repeat the process which led to the passing of the "Cooper Act" earlier this year.

The findings echo the reported view of the Prime Minister's top adviser Dominic Cummings, who is said to have told him that opponents of no-deal had left it too late.

"It's great progress to have a full hearing in September before the Prime Minister can consider closing down parliament to force through a no deal Brexit".

More than half of the British public believes Boris Johnson should suspend Parliament in order to push through Brexit, according to a new poll.

A judge has set the date of Friday 6th September after an initial hearing earlier.

More than 70 MPs and Peers are backing the bid, which would make it "unlawful and unconstitutional" for the Prime Minister to prorogue parliament and force the United Kingdom to leave the European Union without a deal in place.

Most MPs at Westminster are opposed to a no-deal Brexit, and there has been speculation that Mr Johnson could try to get around this by closing parliament in the run-up to 31 October.

Ms Abbott, asked if Labour is planning to move a vote of no confidence against Mr Johnson's Government in the first week of Parliament's return, said: "It's above my pay grade to say when we'll move the vote of no confidence".
