The European Union (EU) has said that there was no basis for any further Brexit talks while the United Kingdom continues to insist on making changes to former Prime Minister Theresa May's withdrawal agreement, the media reported on Tuesday.
Instead of going quietly, Mr Johnson would wait for an election to be triggered and use his executive powers to set the date of an election for after the Brexit date of October 31, so MPs can not stop the process.
Mr Gove, who is in charge of no-deal preparations, said he was "deeply saddened" by the European Union stance after diplomats in Brussels warned that no-deal now appeared the UK's "central scenario".
Names touted as a replacement prime minister include Yvette Cooper, Jo Swinson, Caroline Lucas or Hilary Benn.
But the threat of No Deal has alarmed some MPs and there is a growing thought that Labour, SNP, the Lib Dems and enough Tories can form together to push through a No Confidence vote and block No Deal. "They are simply saying 'No, we don't want to talk.' I think that is wrong and sad".
Johnson's opponents in the Commons are talking about forming a government of national unity - comprised of sympathetic Tories and opposition parties MPs - to take charge of the country prior to a general election which would held this autumn.

In 2012, China really did have a long-standing practice of intervening in the markets to suppress the value of the yuan. The last time the yuan traded at the 7-level against the dollar was during the global financial crisis.
According to The Times, Cummings told government special advisers at a daily meeting: "It's clear as we look at the process for no-deal planning that in all sorts of ways the previous government did not take this seriously".
- Would that bring down the Government and spell the end of Brexit?
Talks between the government and the European Union have stalled over the bloc's reluctance to remove the controversial Irish backstop from any withdrawal agreement.
Senior members of Mr Johnson's team have asserted that MPs have no ability to prevent a no-deal Brexit, despite him being in office with a majority of just one.

Reflecting on her 30 years serving her constituents, Ms Hoey recalled times when the Labour Party in government made "not really sensible" decisions that were criticised by voters, with her Labour colleagues "actually saying: 'Well we may be unpopular, but [Labour voters] have got nowhere else to go'".
But some Conservative MPs told the Guardian they were already very anxious about the amount of power Cummings had accumulated so quickly as an unelected political appointment. He also has the option of forming a coalition with the Brexit Party, if needed, though the latter will reportedly refrain from fielding candidates in seats where a pro-no-deal Conservative Party candidate is running.
