Boris Johnson to suspend Parliament as Brexit plans hit snag
11 September, 2019, 14:27
"A general election might well fail to solve this Brexit chaos", Watson will say.
Voting against a general election offered by the sitting PM when Labour has been calling for one for months is not a good look.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson's party had the support of 38% of voters in the Kantar online survey conducted between Sep. Opposition lawmakers voted against the measure or abstained.
In the past week, they have passed a law that would force Johnson to request a three-month delay to Brexit to January 31, 2020, with the option of further delays. "But I also say we are prepared for a disorderly Brexit", Merkel told parliament.
Boris Johnson and his "wealthy friends" won't bear the cost of a "reckless" no-deal Brexit, Jeremy Corbyn will say at the TUC congress in Brighton on Tuesday, before asserting that Labour is "ready" for an election and set "to unleash the biggest people-powered campaign we've ever seen". Britain is due to leave the European Union on October 31.
United Kingdom workers will pay the price of a no-deal Brexit.
Commons Speaker John Bercow expressed his displeasure at Parliament's suspension, saying "this is not a standard or normal prorogation".
That came ahead of another expected defeat for Johnson, with MPs poised for reject for a second time his call for an early election to break the political impasse over Britain's future.
Johnson said the country's delayed exit must happen at the end of October, with or without a divorce agreement.
Johnson also saw his own brother, Jo Johnson, resign as a Tory MP and minister, while Bracknell MP Philip Lee staged a public defection from the Conservatives to the Lib Dems, a move that wiped out the prime minister's working majority in parliament.
But MPs see it as an attempt to silence them in the run-up to Brexit and believe documents will prove it. Britons voted 52 per cent to 48 per cent three years ago in favour of Brexit.
Johnson, who took office on July 24 to replace Theresa May, promises to carry out Brexit on the agreed date, with no excuses.
Legislators want the government to make available text messages and emails from aides and officials relating to the suspension of parliament and Britain's exit from the European Union amid accusations Johnson is using the break to circumvent opposition to the planned October 31 exit without a deal in place.
The turmoil deepened when Bercow announced that he will step down by October 31 at the latest - with a few shots aimed at the government in his speech.
"We degrade this Parliament at our peril", he told the House of Commons.
He fought back tears as he thanked his wife and children for their support.
Johnson acknowledged Monday that a no-deal Brexit "would be a failure of statecraft" for which he would be partially to blame.
The EU says Britain has not produced any concrete proposals for replacing the contentious "backstop", a provision in the withdrawal agreement reached by Johnson's predecessor Theresa May that is created to ensure an open border between EU member Ireland and the U.K.'s Northern Ireland.
