Brexit: Boris Johnson identifies critical date for MPs trying to block no-deal departure

Boris Johnson has pinpointed the date of maximum opportunity in early September for MPs determined to stop him carrying his threat of a crash-out Brexit.

The prime minister believes Monday 9 September is the critical day both for the cross-party campaign to block a no-deal departure – and for his hopes of persuading the EU to fold and concede a new Brexit deal.

On that date, MPs will debate a motion on progress in restoring power-sharing in Northern Ireland with – crucially – the power to amend the law to try to prevent a no-deal on 31 October.
