Tory rebel Dominic Grieve says there are “sufficient numbers” to pass bill against no-deal Brexit//From CNN’s Sarah Dean

  • Back to business: UK lawmakers return Tuesday from their summer recess for what promises to be one of the most explosive weeks in Parliament in years.
  • Rebels unveil plot: Politicians opposed to a no-deal Brexit will attempt to seize the parliamentary schedule and pass a bill that would effectively prevent Prime Minister Boris Johnson from taking Britain out of the EU on October 31 without a deal.
  • Election talk swirls: Johnson suggested yesterday that he would seek an early election if the rebels voted to rule out a no-deal Brexit, and vowed that he would not ask Brussels for another extension.
  • The clock is ticking: Lawmakers will have much less time to block a no-deal Brexit than they previously thought, after Johnson controversially moved to suspend Parliament for more than a month, starting next week.
