JC, when asked about a vote of no confidence stated that he would only call for one, “at the appropriate time”. From which the commentators are taking it that he will not be requesting one this week.

In in which case the window for a general election and a new government being put in place before 31st Oct has now closed.

And with it, assuming the HoC can’t find an alternate PM in the 14 days between any such vote and dissolution, the chances of a vote to stop Brexit. Because the government can without Royal Consent to any bill which attempts to do so.
