"The assumption that in a space of a few days a proposal could be made, negotiated, endorsed by the summit and ratified by EP (European Parliament) and UK Parliament by end-October seems like a rather heroic assumption, to say the least", he said.
Ian Blackford, leader of the Scottish National Party, also voted against an election, saying his party "will not be party to the prime minister's games".
US President Donald Trump is not anxious for UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Brexit since BoJo "knows how to win" - an optimistic evaluation given the historic failures the British leader has already managed to rack up.
The European Commission meanwhile said Britain had not yet come up with any alternative for the most controversial bit of the current deal, relating to the Irish border.
Johnson's defeat came after lawmakers passed a bill instructing the Prime Minister to request another Brexit extension if he can not secure a deal with the European Union in the coming weeks.

Morgan study found that Trump's tariffs will cost the average U.S. household $1,000 a year. It remains unclear how close the two sides are in reaching a final trade agreement.

"I have to say overall, I think what is happening in Parliament is a total disgrace". The general election of 2017 saw the Tory majority reduced to nothing, with a working majority only secured after a deal was struck with the right-wing Democratic Unionist Party of Northern Ireland and its 10 MPs. It needs to pass both Houses of Parliament to become law.
"Today, I'm afraid it has voted to scupper any serious negotiations". Among them are Nicholas Soames, the grandson of Britain's World War II leader Winston Churchill, as well as two former finance ministers: Philip Hammond and Kenneth Clarke.
He vowed he would "never allow" the delay, insisting the draft law would "surrender" control over Brexit negotiations to Brussels.
Johnson earlier challenged Labour leader Corbyn to back his call for an election, to "let the people decide" how to resolve the Brexit impasse. The prime minister threatened any Conservative who voted against the government in that vote with de-selection from the party. The party's Brexit spokesman, Keir Starmer, said Johnson had violated the trust of the House of Commons with his decision last week to suspend Parliament for several weeks before the Brexit deadline, limiting the time that lawmakers can fight the government's plans.
