U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson, whose Brexit strategy is in tatters, told lawmakers from his disintegrating Conservative party that he wants to get on with an election to stop his government going around in circles.

On Wednesday, members of Parliament are set to push their showdown with the premier over Britain’s divorce from the European Union to its climax. After seizing control over the parliamentary agenda, Johnson’s critics will aim to pass a law banning him from taking Britain out of the bloc without a deal on Oct. 31.
