Amid biopharma's Brexit fears, Johnson hopes to sweeten immigration deal for scientists

The Institute for Government (IfG) said in a 22-page report that numerous previous avenues to stop no-deal are no longer available to the House of Commons.

The poll of 2,003 adults in the United Kingdom conducted between the 8th and 9th of August found that when asked what Prime Minister Boris Johnson should do if he is unable to make changes to the Withdrawal Agreement - enabling it to pass the House of Commons - 46 per cent of respondents said he should "go ahead with Brexit on October 31st even if it means leaving with "no deal".

Johnson has stressed that the United Kingdom would leave the European Union by October 31 "do or die", leaving just 58 days for the two parties to meet for negotiations, agree on a new deal and have it approved by their respective parliaments.

The British Labour party is considering holding a no-confidence vote against the Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

"I would therefore be grateful for your confirmation that, if the United Kingdom is due to leave the European Union without a deal during a general election campaign, the government should seek a time-limited extension to Article 50, to let the electorate decide and the incoming government take the next steps on the basis of the voters' wishes".

Rebel Tories believe there could be a couple of Conservative MPs willing to quit the party or defect in order to bring down Johnson, but not enough for Labour to be completely sure of success in the first week of September.

There is "a lot of uncertainty" about the UK's capacity to patrol fishing waters after a no-deal Brexit, a government memo mistakenly emailed to the BBC has revealed.

They have explored collapsing the government and setting up an alternative, temporary "unity government" to request an extension to article 50 but Labour has made clear it would not support a centrist candidate, such as Ken Clarke or Yvette Cooper, to be temporary PM.

Remainers hoping to block a No Deal Brexit in the courts have been told they have run out of time.

A senior government source said the date for a parliamentary battle was expected to be 9 September - a week after MPs return from their summer break.
