so sorts of immense coming forward, so certainly something to watch, and that separate motion from the prime minister for a that separate motion from the prime ministerfor a general that separate motion from the prime minister for a general election. that separate motion from the prime ministerfor a general election. you are watching bbc news. still with me here is laura trott, former adviser to david cameron... talking justin hardy went to vicki. —— just talking before to vicki. he made a promise to the rebel alliance, they would get the bill through which stop say no—deal brexit before agreeing to any general election. there is also the matter of the date. jeremy corbyn and the labour party are worried if they agree to a general election, borisjohnson rectory push that puts brexit to me that brexit would happen while a general election was taking place.

saying that he wants to go back to the eu on the 17th of october and saying that he thinks that he can get a deal that he wants to be the man making the dealfor get a deal that he wants to be the man making the deal for the get a deal that he wants to be the man making the dealfor the uk. get a deal that he wants to be the man making the deal for the uk. an early election allows boris johnson to still say october the 31st do or die,| to still say october the 31st do or die, iwant to still say october the 31st do or die, i want a deal but i am prepared to do you know deal so it keeps this kind of campaign promises from the leadership campaign intact and no options have been ruled out that the question will be whether he can get the legislation through tomorrow. and it looks unlikely that jeremy corbyn will go through to two thirds. and the fixed term parliament act which is to introduce a short piece of legislation which will set aside the fixed term problem and act and the need for two thirds majority and they can use to specify a date that would allow jeremy corbyn to be reassured that
10:32 pm
it was notjust jeremy corbyn to be reassured that it was not just at that. and they would only need a simple majority for that. in blackford there, for all the assurances that the opposition parties and the rebel territories are trying to get to stop no deal but the simple fact is you cannot bind the hands of the future. unless jeremy corbyn is very confident that he will win the next general election which with current numbers i do not think he should be, any thing that goes to parliament 110w any thing that goes to parliament now can be quickly counteracted by any government. just on the sequencing, we had two motions going down tomorrow, which takes precedent? they can have control of the order paper so after three p:m., it goes over to the eu with what you for joining it goes over to the eu with what you forjoining us. withdrawal bill. fixed term problem and come up with that have to wait until this is out of the way? he
10:33 pm
suggested he wanted to see what will happen in the comment so if the comments pass the legislation so remember this is just for them comments pass the legislation so remember this isjust for them to ta ke remember this isjust for them to take control of the order paper in the commons are looking to ram it all through tomorrow so they have specified that they want a boat at 5pm on the second reading and they wa nt 5pm on the second reading and they want another vote at 7pm so they all wa nt want another vote at 7pm so they all want to push it through tomorrow so we could be looking at the big they don't make vote for general election being right at the end of the day at around this time tomorrow. there is supposed to be a spending review tomorrow ironically and if that happens tomorrow it is in the air.l cabinet member first thing happens tomorrow it is in the air.l cabinet memberfirst thing in happens tomorrow it is in the air.l cabinet member first thing in the morning and you were a special adviser to david cameron and what will that may be like and what will they be thinking? they were prepared for this and the numbers were looking... this is slightly bigger than they were expecting but they we re than they were expecting but they were expecting to lose at the cabinet were prepared to this and agreed to this call to action so it
10:34 pm
will be heads down to the strategy they decided on previously. there is a certain amount there is a certain amount of theory going on both sides and that dominic cummings and his tea m and that dominic cummings and his team and boris johnson and that dominic cummings and his team and borisjohnson 519, did they have more tricks up their sleeve or will it have to be a general election? we have seen a lot of the kind of tricks that exist being talked about already with regards the bell and the bait tricks, the government has a big sleeve controlling parliamentary time. in a number of amendments being put down in the lords trying to filibuster this out. he learned strength to filibuster it and there are talks about the government is trying to withhold royal assent and we have seenin withhold royal assent and we have seen in the vote today that has just passed the rebels trying to guard against that by putting in privations that would say that the house could carry on sitting
10:35 pm
essentially on a day where royal assent with both parts of the house and lloyds, can all get through and they are thinking about what the other side might do but ultimately we will still come back to what happens with brexit and there is still a ticking clock and there are three options, deal, no deal or revoke and you can extend as many times but ultimately that question is not going to go away. january at the end of january, is not going to go away. january at the end ofjanuary, which is what the end ofjanuary, which is what the extension legislation talks about as a first suggestion to the eu, that does not give deal hold huge amount of time to resolve it. david frost, the special europe adviser for borisjohnson david frost, the special europe adviser for boris johnson is david frost, the special europe adviserfor borisjohnson is back and the brussels, back talking to the commission and talking to european ambassadors and unveil documents and which they talk about no deal and prepare for the rest of it, they did a look at what is happening here and that the risk of
10:36 pm
no deal has gone up? did they think that perhaps it is unfair their way? they will probably think overwhelmingly that they would get the deal to the house, because the problem that theresa may always had was that she was not able to get something through so whatever she was negotiating for brussels, she could not deliver her own side. so all the signals this will be sending to brussel is that borisjohnson now u nfortu nately has to brussel is that borisjohnson now unfortunately has the same problem. one eu diplomat dead say to date with what is the point of negotiating, he does not have a majority of any more, it is over. the eu will want to know if they negotiate, if they move and make any concessions how any will be enough to get the deal through. and in some respects they might be looking in saying this leads to a general election actually and finally there will be a rebalancing of the
10:37 pm
arithmetic because as it stands as parliament seems like it is unable to pass any kind of positive things about frak democratic state, what it does one and very good at knocking options down. just a word on jeremy corbyn, i do not expect you to strategize for the labour leader but he is ina strategize for the labour leader but he is in a bed of strategize for the labour leader but he is ina bed ofa strategize for the labour leader but he is in a bed ofa bind strategize for the labour leader but he is in a bed of a bind here because i understand that he is forcibly across the night not risking crashing out no deal by going for an election but we saw some of the reaction from his supporters and he does not want to look for it. for the people around the reader, there are advantages to go to election clique because he decides that manifesto as and when i have to go through the prydie processes that otherwise he went and he could also potentially delay slightly harder brexit position if decided by the leaders office rather than the wider party and he is not someone than the wider party and he is not someone who is proud of the european
10:38 pm
union and is quite a brexiteer but it is held back by his party so it isa it is held back by his party so it is a difficult dilemma for him but ultimately has to be seem to want an election so it is a suicide for an opposition leader not to. what is on the manifesto becausejohn mcdonnell told me a few weeks ago that decided in terms of any deal that came back from borisjohnson that in terms of any deal that came back from boris johnson that they want a referendum on it and that whatever the deal was, they did not have a strategy on what the election campaign would be or whether they would campaign for a main. and has been quite difficult to pin down exactly what labour position is with regards to a referendum and let me come up in an election but... one would presume if they are campaigning for remains and a referendum they would be for a remain campaign, you cannot sit on the fence any more is a point i'm making. i think it will be difficult, one of the questions will be how much this election will be
10:39 pm
brexit because we have this peculiar experience in 2017 where everything was about brexit. then the campaign began and it barely got mentioned. there was dementia tax and both parties sort of fights on their visions being on brexit and it would seem very visions being on brexit and it would seem very weird if that happened now with all that has happened and he could still happen. there is the element at the brexit party and the whole equation and in the next five weeks as it boiled down to effectively a de facto referendum again on brexit? and do people get a straight choice between a true blue brexit if you will and a labour remain position? i think that is an interesting way and positing an it and what the tories were trying to deal was present themselves as the brexit party and appeal so many votes away from the brexit prydie as ican and votes away from the brexit prydie as i can and the labour issue is votes
10:40 pm
being eaten up by the liberal democrat. of the conservatives i think are better at sending out a electoral story than labour are at the moment and they are slightly split, getting the opportunity of tories to come to the middle if they are able to manoeuvre the rest of the brexit vote. so much to discuss in the weeks ahead, thank you so much for accompanying me this evening and much to look forward to this coming tomorrow, and a cabinet meeting in the morning and at 3pm they will put forward their motion to prevent no deal. we will get more reaction i am sure tomorrow i'm boris johnson's reaction i am sure tomorrow i'm borisjohnson's proposalfor reaction i am sure tomorrow i'm borisjohnson's proposal for that general election and at the moment it does not seem that the opposition parties are going to fall for the debate but there will be lots of comment from opposition benches which we will want to hear tomorrow. so from here in westminster for the moment, in westminsterfor the moment, i will hand it back to the studio. thank you very much indeed. if you are watching a few minutes ago you
