    The UK is due to leave the EU on October 31st and Prime Minister Boris Johnson had been hoping to have his withdrawal agreement ratified by Parliament this week.

    But MPs rejected that plan, saying it did not give them time to scrutinise the legislation. The rejection may have dealt the prime minister's dreams of leaving the EU at the end of October a mortal blow.
