Protests erupt as Boris Johnson suspends Parliament
Drama and protests as UK's Johnson handed defeats ahead of Parliament break

The law flies in the face of Johnson's "do-or-die" determination to leave the European Union at the end of October, with or without a deal. In fact, last week he outright vowed that he would not do so, telling reporters that he'd rather be "dead in a ditch".
Mr Varadkar said Britain had not produced any realistic alternatives to the controversial "backstop" agreement reached by Mr Johnson's predecessor, Theresa May.
But opposition parties say they won't support an election until Britain has secured a delay to the Brexit date, to ensure the country does not crash out of the bloc without a deal. Or, in former PM Tony Blair's words, "I personally believe so strongly in Brexit that I would do virtually anything to stop it". A YouGov poll for The Sunday Times also found that "35% of voters say they want "important issues" to be decided by the public in referendums, compared to 33% who are content for decisions to be made by the Parliament". This is the view of many remain-supporting lawmakers. If no other party leader can command a majority within the following 14 days, an election would be triggered.
Urging politicians to back his call, Johnson said a general election was the only way to break the Brexit deadlock.
"Given the limited options faced by Boris Johnson, he must choose - does he resign, or does he go into an election having had to ask for an extension from the EU?" Corbyn has previously floated the idea of leading a temporary "government of national unity" with the sole objective of securing a delay to Brexit, before calling a national election. He thinks several steps ahead, thrives on chaos and has sat in a bunker for three years thinking about this: "so what is he going to do?" That's a big blow for the British Parliament.
Since Johnson won the top job in July, Britain's Brexit crisis has spun more furiously, leaving investors and allies bewildered by an array of decisions that diplomats compare to the disorientating style of U.S. President Donald Trump.
"Now the House will be suspended until mid-October", Johnson said while hoping that the Opposition would use the time "to reflect".
Johnson has acknowledged that a no-deal Brexit "would be a failure of statecraft" for which he would be partially to blame.

"'No deal' would not be a clean break; it would not mean just getting on with it; it would start a whole new period of confusion and delay", Mr. Corbyn told MPs during a debate Monday.
Johnson said he would cut short the parliamentary term so he can outline his domestic agenda at a new session of Parliament in October. They want to make sure a no-deal departure is blocked before agreeing to an election.
Given the challenges of Brexit, Johnson can't afford a civil war with his own party members.
