The UK Parliament will be suspended Monday evening following a vote on a snap election. The queen has given "royal assent" to a law that aims to prevent a no-deal Brexit. Follow along for the latest from Parliament.
Boris Johnson has vowed that the UK will escape the EU's chains on October 31 just like the comic book hero if no new deal is reached. The British prime minister is due to hold fresh talks in Brussels on Monday.
UK lawmakers have again rejected a call from PM Johnson for an early election. The UK government suspended Parliament until mid-October, nearly two weeks before an October 31 Brexit deadline.
The UK prime minister has said he is "cautiously optimistic" he can thrash out an agreement with the EU. But his Irish counterpart insists the gulf between Brussels and Britain is still "very wide."
