Are Labour running scared of your vote?

MPs have rejected Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s call for an early election for the third time.

The motion needed the support of two-thirds of all MPs – 434 out of 650 – but only 299 supported holding an election.

Mr Johnson told MPs that voters would be “absolutely bewildered” by Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn’s apparent resistance to an election, after most opposition MPs abstained from Monday’s vote.
Mr Corbyn said he would consider the legislation but would only support an election once a no-deal Brexit had been taken off the table.

Seventy members voted against and 272 did not vote.
