Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Boris Johnson announced he will seek to trigger a snap election after 21 Conservative MPs rebelled during a crunch vote.

MPs voted in favour of allowing a cross-party alliance to take control of the Commons agenda on Wednesday in a bid to block a no-deal Brexit on 31 October by 328 votes to 301.

Analysis of the Commons division list showed 21 Tories rebelled to support the motion on Tuesday night.

The government has said the whip will be withdrawn from all of those who rebelled.

Shortly after the results were announced, the prime minister said he would table a motion under the Fixed-term Parliaments Act.

Things are going to slide, slide in all directions
Won't be nothing
Nothing you can measure anymore
