Boris Johnson defeated as Tory rebels move against a no-deal Brexit – BBC News



The UK’s Prime Minister has lost a key Brexit vote as members of parliament opposed to no deal take control of House of Commons business.

MPs voted to take control of the Commons agenda tomorrow, paving the way for a bill designed to block Boris Johnson from taking the UK out of the European Union without a deal.

In a statement immediately after the vote, the Prime Minister accused parliament of being on the “brink of wrecking any deal” the UK might be able to strike in Brussels. Mr Johnson indicated that he would call for a general election if MPs vote tomorrow to force him to seek a delay to Brexit.

Earlier in the day the government lost its working majority in the Commons, when the Conservative Dr Philip Lee defected to the Liberal Democrats in protest at the government’s approach.

Ben Shapiro: US commentator clashes with BBC's Andrew Neil – BBC News



He has more than 2 million followers on Twitter, 600,000 YouTube subscribers and his videos on the Daily Wire channel rack up millions of views.

Ben Shapiro is a controversial figure but one of the US’ leading conservative political commentators. His book, The Right Side of History: How Reason and Moral Purpose Made the West Great, is a New York Times bestseller.

In a spiky Politics Live interview with Andrew Neil, Mr Shapiro refers to an incident which took place between Trump campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski and Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields in 2016.

Although a charge was brought at the time against Mr Lewandowski, Florida prosecutors dropped the case.

This is an unedited version of their interview, which was terminated by Mr Shapiro.
