United Kingdom may be entering full-blown recession, says budget watchdog

'No-deal' Brexit dealt blow by UK parliament Brexit no-deal, no go? British MPs back bid to block shutdown of Parliament

In a massive blow to would-be-PM Boris Johnson, MPs voted through a crucial amendment which may make it illegal for him to suspend parliament to attempt to force a no-deal Brexit on MPs.

The former Mayor of London and Foreign Secretary has said that he will call a general election next summer, nearly a year after taking power, if Conservative party members vote him in as Prime Minister next week.

Three British cabinet ministers are set to resign the day Boris Johnson, if as expected, becomes Britain's next prime minister, The Times newspaper reported on Thursday.

Al Jazeera's Jonah Hull reports.

"Any form of Brexit would be a disaster and crashing out of the European Union with no deal at all could cause a recession, destroy 100,000 Scottish jobs and cost every person in the country £2,300 a year.

If it does not, the British parliament will insist on getting a new postponement", he said.

Costa said whoever wins must ensure citizens' rights are upheld even if there is no Brexit deal.

Their rights to live, work and study are protected under an agreement struck between the two sides - but the divorce agreement has been rejected by Britain's Parliament, raising the prospect of a no-deal Brexit.

Earlier this month, Trump lashed out at May following the leak of diplomatic cables from Britain's ambassador to Washington describing the United States leader as "inept", and voiced thanks that her premiership would soon be over.

"The withdrawal agreement is the withdrawal agreement", she said. "My position is that parliament should NOT restrict the hands of an incoming govt in this way & I remain opposed to how parl voted".

The upcoming change in prime minister also had U.S. President Donald Trump sharing opinions on British politics Friday.

Trump revealed that he spoke with Johnson on Thursday and had a good conversation.

Asked whether he would rule out voting in favour of a no-confidence motion against Johnson, Hammond told Le Monde and Suddeutsche Zeitung: 'I will take steps to avoid an exit without agreement apart from an explicit parliamentary approval.

"I hope we never get there, but I think a lot of people were taught that you must put the interest of the country before yourself", he told the Today programme. "I think we're going to have a great relationship". He added that he did not think it a good idea to continue endlessly extending the UK's membership of the European Union to avoid no-deal, but could not accept the economic damage that would be inflicted on leaving this autumn.
