The United Kingdom government is not to hold a snap election in October to give a “new mandate” for the United Kingdom’s negotiations with the European Union.
It comes as Team Boris held an emergency meeting, outlining their steps as Remain MPs attempt to stop the UK leaving the European Union on the 31st of October.
The UK overwhelmingly voted to leave the European Union. It is now unclear if Boris will secure a majority to deliver a successful clean-slate Brexit in the event of a General Election.
The move not to call a General Election has been a controversial one. Remain parties could secure a Commons victory, as SNP, Labour and Lib Dems might form an alliance to ensure the UK does not leave the European Union, at all.
Team Boris has said in the past that the United Kingdom will leave the EU at the end of October. Number 10 now seem to feel they need a mandate from the people regarding their negotiation tactic, which could prove to be utterly fatal, and backfire, just like it did with Theresa May.
The country awaits tensely as the United Kingdom sees another turbulent and dramatic week begin to unfold in UK politics.
