UK snap general election 14 October?

Sky News just reported that Boris Johnson will fall a snap general election for 14 October should Parliament block no-deal Brexit this week which seems likely. This could get real interesting. I assume Boris thinks that the Tories will still win with a larger majority, but what does the Brexit party do? And, Labour would win an absolute landslide if they had any other leader besides Jeremy Corbyn.

Should be a very interesting week in UK politics!
