Johnson Defiant After British Parliament Votes to Force Brexit Delay

Johnson Defiant After British Parliament Votes to Force Brexit Delay

"Today can be the day we get Brexit done".

In addition, a law passed weeks ago said that if Mr Johnson didn't have a deal done by midnight on Saturday, 19 October, he'd have to ask the European Union for another extension.

Steve Baker, the head of a hardline Brexit faction in the Conservative Party, has told his European Research Group allies they should vote for Johnson's deal.

If he allows the vote, Labour MPs in pro-Brexit seats will be under massive pressure.

"It's actually a really right-wing deal". Late Friday the government promised to bolster protections for the environment and workers' rights to allay Labour fears that the Conservative government plans to slash those protections after Brexit. "This is them getting this kind of [Margaret] Thatcher-plus, deregulated economy that really will undo an very bad lot of the things that Labour people believe in, and that's why I think it's disappointing if any Labour MP votes for this", Mr Campbell said.

From the outset the numbers seemed to match predictions of a vast turnout, with many marchers saying that they were kept stationary at Hyde Park Corner, close to the march's starting point, and "severe bottlenecks" reported by the People's Vote along Piccadilly.

How did we get here?

She supports Brexit and said another referendum would be anti-democratic since the country voted to leave the European Union in 2016.

Johnson hopes for success in getting a fractious Parliament to back the deal after his predecessor, Theresa May, failed three times to get lawmakers behind her plan.

A handout picture released by the UK Parliament shows Britain's Prime Minister Boris Johnson making a statement in the House of Commons in London on October 19, 2019.

Some MPs speculated that Johnson would request the extension by 2200 UTC on Saturday but may stipulate that it would only take effect if parliament does not approve his deal by the end of the month.

It is still unclear though if Jonah was eyed to play the same role or if he was in talks to play another famous villain - Penguin. Filming is reported to originate in leisurely 2019 or early 2020, with a script reportedly accomplished as of September 2019.

The government will not now hold a vote on its Brexit deal on Saturday as planned. "The real problem, of course, is that we have a country that voted "leave" and still wants to leave; most members of parliament want to remain". We will seek to ensure that it becomes the law before October 31. It's meant to prevent any chance of a no-deal exit on October 31, and could get support from lawmakers who want to leave the European Union but fear the consequences of a chaotic exit. Parliament rejected her deal three times, by margins of between 58 and 230 votes earlier this year.

Suella Braverman tweeted that, "Tomorrow I will vote to support the new deal" that Johnson negotiated.

Yet his hopes of getting the deal through Parliament were dealt a blow when his Northern Ireland ally, the Democratic Unionist Party, said it would not back him.

And he must navigate a legislative jungle that his opponents are trying to booby trap with amendments that could wreck his path to Brexit.

Lawmakers backed an amendment which effectively forces the government to request an extension until January next year, while they scrutinised the proposed domestic legislation to enforce the deal with Brussels. Various scenarios may be put in motion by the vote.

The amendment makes support for the deal conditional on the legislation to implement it being passed by Parliament, something that could take several days or weeks.

Even though Mr Johnson believes this can be achieved by 31 October, others think it would need a short "technical" delay.

The vote means Mr Johnson can not secure parliamentary approval his deal by the end of 19 October and is required by the terms of the so-called Benn Act to write to Brussels to ask for an extension to the end of January 2020.

Nicholas Soames, one of the 21, said he would vote for the deal, and thought most of his expelled colleagues would "by and large vote for it".
