BORDERS MP John Lamont says he will toe the party line in tonight's crucial Brexit vote.

Westminster is set to vote on a bill brought about by opposition MPs attempting to block a no deal exit.

But despite some Conservatives preparing to rebel against the government; the member for Berwickshire, Roxburgh and Selkirk says he will not be one of them.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has indicated that if the move by opposition MPs is supported, he will go back to voters by calling a general election.

Mr Lamont said: "The majority of Borderers are democrats, who respect the result of the UK wide referendum in 2016 and just want Brexit done.

"This bill is simply an attempt by Corbyn and Sturgeon to take control by the back door and to frustrate our departure from the EU.

"I want the UK to leave the EU with a sensible deal, which is why I twice voted in favour of the only deal on the table.

"This legislation will kill the negotiations stone dead and make achieving a better deal impossible. 

"There will be no reason for the EU to agree to any changes to the current deal. 

"And there is no guarantee that the EU will agree to an extension, meaning negotiations end and we leave on October 31 with no deal.

"I am increasingly astonished with SNP and Labour MPs who claim to want to avoid no deal at any cost saying that they will not support any deal negotiated with the EU.

"I will be standing up for democracy and for the majority of my constituents who are sick and tired of Brexit and want the country to move on."

At 6pm, an opposition MP will propose the bill which, if passed, could hand over control of the Commons order paper tomorrow to backbenchers.
