Duty-free shopping to return under no-deal Brexit: UK chancellor

Duty-free shopping to return under no-deal Brexit UK: Bill ruling out no-deal Brexit becomes law

Two applications had been made for emergency Parliamentary debates on Monday, one about the rule of law and the other to press for the disclosure of internal communications between a group of Johnson aides regarding the suspension of Parliament as well as documents relating to the government's plan for a no-deal Brexit since July 23, BBC News reported.

Al Jazeera's Charlie Angela reports from London.

His predecessor, Theresa May well, attained an settlement with Brussels final year but MPs turned down it 3 periods.

Johnson is calling for a snap election on October 15 in an effort to win a parliamentary majority to approve his Brexit plans ahead of an European Union summit of the continent's leaders days later that could set the final terms of Britain's departure from the EU. Johnson had set up the suspension - called a prorogation - last month in what opponents cast as an attempt to sideline lawmakers as he attempts to pull the country out of the European Union by October 31, with or without a withdrawal deal.

Lawmakers who're involved in regards to the financial fallout from a no-deal Brexit have voted to drive Johnson to hunt a delay to keep away from leaving with no deal, however he has stated that he won't countenance an extension.

There is growing speculation among MPs that the current government will not abide by the law, and will not ask for an extension from the European Union, which itself may not be inclined to give one, as France indicated earlier that it may veto any extension.

There is speculation Johnson could resign rather than ask for a delay, but someone - perhaps a civil servant, or an opposition politician - would have to make the request.

Netanyahu vows to annex West Bank's Jordan Valley if re-elected
Annexing settlements would likely spell the end of any lingering hopes of establishing a Palestinian state alongside Israel . The map appeared to show Israeli territory completely encircling the West Bank, slicing off the eastern border with Jordan.

This leaves him in an impossible scenario, not able to govern, and an election is noticed as nearly inescapable.

But the timing remains in question.

Johnson experienced desired an election on Oct 15, hoping he would gain enough seats in the Commons to force via his Brexit approach.

But the main opposition Labour party said it would only back an election once "no deal" was off the table.

A spokesman for Johnson said that parliament would be suspended from Monday evening, meaning that an election is very unlikely before October 31 unless parliament is recalled early.

- No Brexit at all?

If Johnson wins a subsequent election, or can forge a pact with the eurosceptic Brexit Bash, he could continue to drive by means of a "no offer" divorce in the months in advance.
