UK PM Boris Johnson has tabled a motion seeking a general election after a vote blocked his drive for a no-deal Brexit last night.

21 Conservative MPs sided with the opposition to prevent no-deal proceedings, in what was a key vote in current Brexit proceedings.

Johnson said that the vote would not only block a no-deal Brexit, but would grant control of the proceedings to the EU.

Mr. Johnson would require a two thirds majority in Parliament to call a general election, but opposition leader Jeremy Cornyn said that they would not vote for an election before the bill blocking a no-deal Brexit was passed.
