Boris Johnson holds his final weekly Cabinet meeting before the general election

UK Prime Minister Theresa May's decision to call an early election backfired in 2017

A parliamentary majority for Prime Minister Boris Johnson would likely see the European Union withdrawal agreeement that was finalised in October then sail through the House of Commons and with a "no deal" Brexit likely omitted from the Conservative manifesto, the market's worst case outcome will have been buried as a prospect once and for all.

All seats in the 650-seat House of Commons are up for grabs in the December 12 election.

Left-of-center Labour says if it wins, within six months it will negotiate a new Brexit divorce deal that keeps close relations between Britain and the European Union, then hold a national referendum on whether to leave on those terms or remain in the bloc. I think you do.

Farage has unsuccessfully contested the United Kingdom parliamentary elections seven times and sits in the European Parliament, at present.

"Not for a career, I don't want to be in politics for the rest of my life".

Farage said he would hurt the opposition Labour Party "in the most extraordinary way".

Farage says the Conservatives are arrogant for not joining him in a "leave alliance".

The Brexit Party's ratings fell sharply after Johnson seized power in July on a "do or die" pledge to deliver Brexit by October 31. "Of that I am certain".

The former Brexit minister, who until now remained closely aligned with Farage on Brexit, also lambasted his decision not to stand as an MP, saying it showed he was "not serious about governing the country". Steve Baker tells Guido: "Having condemned the Surrender Act it would totally freaky to enter FTA negotiations and rule out leaving with No Deal".

Mr Corbyn said a vote for Boris Johnson's Conservatives is "a vote to betray our NHS in a sell-out to Trump".

Mr Rees-Mogg warned that he was in danger of snatching "defeat from the jaws of victory" after his part in the campaign to leave the EU.

Nigel Farage will not be standing as a candidate at the General Election. "But that is what he ought to do", Rees-Mogg told LBC radio.

Taking questions from journalists, he dismissed talk of a coalition with another party and labelled Nigel Farage a "one-trick pony" after the Brexit Party leader confirmed he plans to target Labour Leave voters at the election. If the election is fought primarily on Brexit, then the appeal of the Liberal Democrats, as the only Remain party, should not be underestimated either.

The premier told his top team they looked "full of beans" as he claimed the government had defied its critics by securing a new and "great" Brexit deal with the EU.

There had been reports the party might stand down candidates in seats where the Brexit party might take away votes from the Conservative candidate and risk allowing remain supporting candidates from other parties to win.

Speaking in front of a background that read "it's time for real change" Mr Corbyn said: "Boris Johnson and the leave campaign promised to rebuild our NHS, and they promised that people would be able to take back control of their lives after years of watching their towns being run down: factories gone, jobs gone, their sense of community gone".
