Johnson Brexit Plan Falls Apart

Boris Johnson's Brexit plan to win an election before taking Britain out of the EU at the end of October is in doubt.

His government was forced to abandon its attempt to block a bill that could delay Brexit until 2020.

Business Insider reports that Labour is considering forcing him to hold an election after Britain's planned exit date.

Johnson suffered a series of defeats in both the House of Commons and House of Lords.

One minister told the Times that Johnson could resign if his plan fails.
