Remain alliance hatch plan to force PM into Brexit extension
Another week, another plot. Opposition leaders are meeting today to find a way of forcing Boris Johnson to request a Brexit extension. The Remain coalition will meet in Jeremy Corbyn’s office this afternoon to discuss changing the law to bring forward the date when the Prime Minister legally has to ask Brussels to extend Article 50. Political Editor Gordon Rayner explains – if successful - how soon the challenge could happen. The Prime Minister’s opponents are seeking to prevent a no-deal Brexit. Here is a reminder of how that could affect the UK. And, as the Conservative Party conference opened in Manchester, Labour activists shared an image of “dead Tories” hanging from a bridge.
Meanwhile, Mr Johnson could face an investigation by one of his own Cabinet ministers into claims he squeezed a journalist’s thigh. Despite furious denials from No 10, women and equalities minister Liz Truss said she would “look at” an allegation by Charlotte Edwardes that Mr Johnson touched her upper leg during a lunch. Whitehall Editor Owen Bennett has full details of the claims.
