BORIS Johnson has ruled out a snap election.

Speaking on the steps of Downing Street, the prime minister said: “I don’t want an election, you don’t want an election.”

In a veiled threat to rebel Conservative MPs, Mr Johnson said parliamentarians should side with the Government in a crunch Commons vote tomorrow rather than a “pointless” Labour bill aimed at ruling out a no-deal Brexit on October 31.

He added: “There are no circumstances in which I will ask Brussels to delay. We are leaving on October 31, no ifs no buts.”
