In a dramatic move last night, timed to coincide with Mr Johnson's leadership launch, Jeremy Corbyn will force a Commons vote on a plan designed to make it illegal for Theresa May's successor to take Britain out of the EU without a deal.

It comes as a poll predicted that Boris Johnson could win a majority of 140 seats in a general, assessing him the only leadership candidate capable of besting both Jeremy Cobryn on the left and Nigel Farage on the right. 

The move to wrest control of Parliamentary business from the Government has the backing of former Tory Cabinet minister Sir Oliver Letwin, as well as all the Liberal Democrats, SNP and Greens.
