Queen Elizabeth Approves Measure to Block Johnson's No-deal Brexit

Brexit uncertainty returned as an unyielding British government affirmed their determination to honour the October 31 Brexit deadline, despite a legislative bill - passed into law last night - created to force their hand in seeking a deadline extension. The Royal Assent was announced in parliament's upper chamber, the House of Lords.

Before Johnson took office in July, parliament three times rejected Brexit plans advanced by former Prime Minister Theresa May.

Asked if the United Kingdom would depart on time, he claimed: "Positive". He wants an election to break the deadlock.

Last Wednesday, Parliament passed the so-called "no-deal" legislation, which - now that it has been rubber stamped by the Queen - forces Johnson to ask the European Union for a three-month extension to the October 31 Brexit deadline, unless Parliament approves a new withdrawal agreement or votes to allow a "no-deal" divorce by October 19.

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.

Ireland told Johnson on Monday that he must make specific proposals on the future of the Irish border if there is to be any hope of averting a no-deal Brexit, saying Dublin can not rely on simple promises.

Nonetheless the predominant opposition Labour celebration mentioned it could possibly perchance well fully abet an election as soon as "no deal" used to be off the desk. "All leaders agreed that they would not support Boris Johnson's ploy to deny the people their decision by crashing us out of the European Union with No Deal during a general election campaign", Labour said.

If Mr Johnson wins a subsequent election, or can forge a pact with the eurosceptic Brexit Birthday celebration, he could perchance well aloof pressure thru a "no deal" divorce within the months ahead.

But lawmakers are expected Monday to reject Johnson's call for an election.
