Defiant UK lawmakers move to bar ‘no deal’ Brexit

Defiant UK lawmakers move to bar ‘no deal’ Brexit

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson faced questions from all sides of the House of Commons Tuesday after news broke that a defection in the Conservative ranks had cost his party their majority. Johnson became prime minister in July by promising to lead Britain out of the European Union, breaking the impasse that has paralyzed the country's politics since voters decided in June 2016 to leave the bloc.

As Corbyn was saying of the new prime minister: "He's desperate, absolutely desperate to avoid scrutiny", Johnson appeared to make the insult.

The movement would require the help of two-thirds of MPs below the provisions of the Fastened-term Parliaments Act, however Labour indicated that they might not help the transfer till possibilities of a no-deal Brexit have been taken off the desk.

After losing a vote on his Brexit plans late on Tuesday, Johnson was keen to get on the front foot by accusing Corbyn of supporting a policy of "dither and delay" over Brexit but also of running scared of his call for an early election on October 15.

The only reasonable remark to emerge from the exchange came at the end, when Johnson told the Commons: "What this country needs is a sensible, moderate, progressive, Conservative Government".

On a day of high drama and acerbic debate in the House of Commons, lawmakers returned from their summer recess to confront Johnson over his insistence that the U leave the European Union on October 31, even without a withdrawal agreement to cushion the economic blow.

As such, he could just instead fix an election date for 15 October and through a shorter law seek a simple majority to pass an election motion.

Whereas Labour's refusal to again it could restrict the probability of Mr Johnson's movement succeeding, different avenues stay open to the Prime Minister to push for a snap election - together with triggering a confidence movement in his personal authorities.

Downing Street said the 21 Tory MPs who rebelled in Tuesday's vote would have the whip removed, effectively expelling them from the parliamentary party and meaning they could not stand as Conservative candidates in the election.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn on Tuesday said he was in favour of an election but only once the legislation was passed "in order to take no deal off the table". It means that parliament is on the brink of wrecking any deal we might be able to strike in Brussels.

'It will hand control of the negotiations to the European Union'.

Speaking late on Tuesday to a packed House of Commons, the prime minister said the MPs' bill would "hand control" of Brexit negotiations to the European Union and bring "more dither, more delay, more confusion".

"I don't want an election".

"I welcome tonight's vote".

The whole sorry performance came to a head with a lacklustre joke about Corbyn being a "chlorinated chicken" for refusing to agree to the election that he doesn't even know if he wants himself. It was a momentous day in Britain's centuries-old Parliament as the legislature rose up to successfully challenge the power of the prime minister and his government over vital Brexit policy.

Andreeva says "we are willing to work constructively with Prime Minister (Boris) Johnson and to look at any concrete proposals that he may have as long as they are compatible with the withdrawal agreement".

"The people of this country will have to choose".

He continued: 'I don't need an election but when MPs vote tomorrow to cease the negotiations and to compel one other pointless delay of Brexit, doubtlessly for years, then that would be the exclusively solution to resolve this.
