The threats, reported by multiple British outlets, are coming through Conservative whips, those who are responsible for gauging and building support in parliament.
The pound tumbled against the USA dollar (GBPUSD=X) again on Tuesday after newly installed United Kingdom prime minister Boris Johnson threatened to call another snap general election on 14 October, if members of parliament blocked his ability to drag Britain out of the European Union without a deal.
"We want a general election", opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn said, to oust Johnson's "phony, populist cabal". A government source has said Johnson will seek an election if they defeat the government.
A senior official said that if the government loses the vote, it would table a parliamentary vote for Wednesday on holding an early election.
But there are those who still work to frustrate the Prime Minister's plans. British media reports say Johnson is aiming for an election on Monday, October 14, which means Parliament would have to dissolve early in the week of September 9.
"So the outlook for sterling is very much determined about the probabilities of a no-deal Brexit".
"If ultimately the prime minister and leader of my party is doing something which I think is so fundamentally wrong, then I can't continue supporting it", Dominic Grieve, a rebel Conservative MP, told BBC television. "And without an election, which I don't want and you don't want".
The rebels' proposed law states that if MPs have not approved an European Union deal or endorsed a "no deal" scenario by October 19 - the day after the European Union summit - then Johnson must seek a delay to Brexit. A Bloomberg survey of strategists carried out last month saw an election as a better scenario for markets than a no-deal Brexit, with a vote seen pushing the currency down to $1.19 versus $1.10 on a crash exit.

The August data marked a "temporary green blip", according to Stephen Innes, a market strategist for Asia Pacific at AxiTrader. The subdued sales to domestic and worldwide clients in turn curbed output growth, which softened to the weakest in a year.

Asked if the crew tried to help the passengers before fleeing, Rochester replied, "I don't have any information on that". Monica Rochester told reporters at a brief news conference at Channel Islands Harbor in Oxnard on the mainland.
Johnson, whose Conservatives have seen an opinion poll bounce since he took office, has a working majority of just one seat in the 650-seat lower house of Parliament.
MPs from Johnson's own Conservative Party are preparing to join opposition lawmakers in a vote on Tuesday to try to force him to delay Brexit if he can not strike an agreement with Brussels in the next few weeks.
The Edinburgh hearing could also be explosive, with a lawyer for the MPs demanding a sworn statement from Johnson about why he is proroguing Parliament - meaning he could (in theory) be called to testify. "We're leaving the 31st of October, no ifs or buts".
It would be a gamble to go back to the country after three national votes in the last four years (elections in 2015 and 2017, referendum in 2016) but it could break the deadlock that has kept Parliament from making any obvious progress on Brexit for the past three years. In his Downing Street statement, Johnson said he believed lawmakers would not vote for the bill to prevent a no-deal exit. The Fixed Term Parliaments Act says nothing about elections having to be on an particular day of the week.
The prime minister wants to suspend Parliament for five weeks ahead of a Queen's Speech on 14 October.
"The next 48 hours will determine whether or not this high-risk strategy from the prime minister has paid off, or whether or not he has been corralled into a corner, or conversely still there are several options where we are simply going for the uncertainty of an election mid-October".
Opposition parties have pledged to support a general election, so long as it happens before the October 31 deadline.
