Boris Johnson shuts parliament for FIVE weeks as MP's block election
Boris Johnson lost his attempt to trigger a snap general election
The Prime Minister accused Jeremy Corbyn of having 'yellow belly' for dodging the polls.
Houses of Parliament will be prorogued until mid-October.
The Prime Minister has shut down parliament for five weeks after MP's blocked his latest bid to trigger a snap general election.
He fell short of the required two-thirds of MPs - 434 - with backing from just 293.
Boris Johnson accused the leader of the opposition, Jeremy Corbyn and remainer MP's of having 'yellow belly', accusing them of 'conniving to delay Brexit', adding that they 'can't hide forever' from the polls.
After the results of the vote were announced in the early hours of Tuesday morning, Mr Johnson said he would not seek an extension from the EU, as stated in the new Remainer law against No Deal, and vowed to stick to his 'do or die' pledge to get the UK out by October 31.
During Monday night's showdown, the Prime Minister insisted he would go to an EU summit on October 17 and 'strive to get an agreement in the national interest... this government will not delay Brexit any further'.
Speaking on the No Deal law, which requires him to ask for a Brexit extension if no deal is agreed by October 19th, Mr Johnson said: "No matter how many devices this Parliament invents to tie my hands I will try to get an agreement in the national interest.
"This Government will not allow Brexit to be delayed any further. While the opposition run, they cannot hide forever."
Now that parliament has been prorogued until mid-October, it's highly unlikely that a general election will happen before mid-November.
An election requires the Commons to vote for an election, or pass a no-confidence motion and 14 days to elapse without a new administration being formed.
There must be 25 days between dissolving Parliament for an election, and the actual date.
The news comes after the Speaker in the House of Commons, John Bercow said he will resign by October 31st.
The dramatic turn of events comes amid backlash from Tory MP's over his handling of Brexit.
The Speaker appeared to be teary-eyed as he made the announcement in a statement to the House of Commons on Monday afternoon.
