Made with Sketch.

Boris Johnson will address a powerful committee of conservative back-seat representatives this morning as he lays the foundation for a general election of & # 39; People vs. Parliament & # 39 ;.

The prime minister will attend a meeting of the 1922 commission in Parliament at 11.30 am when it is expected that he will hit the drum for an early election.

His speech will take place as speculation continues that the Prime Minister will try to prorogenize Parliament again.

Last night he challenged opposition leaders to cast a vote of no confidence to try to overthrow him and cause a snap poll, but they all said they would only try to get rid of him like a No Deal Brexit is excluded.

Despite Mr. Johnson's setback, Downing Street remains convinced that there will be a quick election sooner than later and possibly at the end of November.

As a result, number 10 is now in full campaign mode, with Mr. Johnson extending his rhetoric and Brexit attacks on the other MPs.

However, Mr Johnson is facing a huge setback today after telling MPs last night that the best way to honor Jo Cox, a Labor MP murdered by an extreme right-wing terrorist, was to deliver Brexit.

He also seemed to reject MPs' claims that burning language endangered their lives.

Meanwhile, MEPs will vote later today whether they will continue with a three-day parliamentary break next week that would allow the Conservative Party Conference in Manchester to continue as planned.

But it is unclear whether opposition MPs will give the Tories free time if tensions continue to increase in the House of Commons.

The Tories have said the conference will go ahead, but the government is concerned that MPs can do harm without recess by forcing crunch votes into the Commons, forcing ministers and conservative backbenchers to hurry back to London.

Johnson is also confronted with anger after he suggested that he draw up plans to try to prorogenize parliament again.

Earlier this week, the Supreme Court ruled that Mr. Johnson's prorogation for five weeks was illegal.

But the Prime Minister has said that he still wants to give a speech from the Queen so that he can prepare a new national legislative agenda.

This raises the prospect that the prime minister will try to suspend Parliament for a shorter period of maybe a week in a movement that will cause anger at the other MPs who will claim that they have just returned to work.

Johnson refused the demands made to him yesterday to apologize for his failed prorogation when he spoke again to hold a Queen's Speech.

He said: & I think we need a speech from the queen. We have a dynamic domestic agenda. & # 39;

When asked when he could proceed to activate a new suspension, Mr. Johnson said: & I inform (MPs) as soon as we have assessed the significance of the court ruling. & # 39;

Mr. Johnson confirmed last night during the ITV Peston show that he was not deterred by the unanimous decision of the Supreme Court.

He said: & # 39; I think the public should see what we want to do and I am very sorry that the opposition is kind of stuck.

& # 39; They also don't want elections. They don't want Brexit to be ready. They don't seem to want anything.

& # 39; So I would like to urge them: if you really don't want elections, let's continue with a strong domestic agenda of the kind we have. & # 39;

Johnson had challenged opposition MPs to cast a vote of no confidence last night because he said he would free up time for a division if a party tried to get rid of him.

But none of the other parties took the bait.

Downing Street said that if MPs did not try to expel the prime minister, he would consider that a sign that Parliament does indeed have faith in him and his Brexit strategy.

Number 10 said that if no vote of confidence was cast, Mr. Johnson would determine that he has a mandate from MPs to continue at his own discretion.

The comments were broadly interpreted as a signal that the Prime Minister will try to prepare Parliament again.

Meanwhile, Mr. Johnson will try to prevent him from losing a seventh Commons vote in succession later today.

MPs will be asked to give the Tories a three-day parliamentary break before the start of next week for the annual conference of the party.

Labor said last night that it would be ready to work with the government to ensure that the Tory party conference took place.

However, shadow commander Valerie Vaz has not committed to vote for a break, something that has made ministers nervous about a potential ambush.

Jacob Rees-Mogg expressed the concerns of the government as he said: & # 39; I am, however, very grateful for the fact that, somewhat suspicious of, your offer that we could all go to Manchester and that business could go through this is somewhat grateful were desperately merciless.

& # 39; There has been a recent custom that permanent order motion led to legislation, and it would be a shame if the conservative banks were empty because we were all in the beautiful city of Manchester. & # 39;

Mr. Johnson aroused anger in the Commons last night for saying that the & # 39; best way to honor the memory of Jo Cox, and indeed to bring this country together, I think Brexit is done to get & # 39 ;.

He also rejected as & # 39; modest & # 39; claims by Labor MP Paula Sherriff that the & # 39; pejorative language & # 39; which he used at Brexit endangered the safety of MPs.

Mrs. Sheriff said that all politicians & # 39; had to moderate our language & # 39; while pointing to Mrs. Cox's commemorative shield on the wall in the lower house.

But Mr. Johnson replied: & # 39; I have to say that I have never heard such & # 39; n humbug in my entire life. & # 39;

Brendan Cox, Jo's widower, said he was a little sick & # 39; after hearing Mr Jonson's comments.

The prime minister is now under heavy pressure to apologize.
