UK's Johnson asks for a Brexit delay that he doesn't want

UK's Johnson asks for a Brexit delay that he doesn't want

Why hasn't Parliament pushed this through?

Speaking on the BBC's Andrew Marr Show, Mr Raab said: "We've actually secured a deal, with the European Union, a lot of people said the Prime Minister couldn't do that, he's got that, we seem to have the numbers in the House of Commons, why hasn't Parliament pushed this through, that's what we're going to do next week".

Gove said that Johnson had sent the letter because it was required by parliament, but "parliament can't change the prime minister's mind".

Meanwhile, a huge protest was held in London calling for a second public vote on the new Brexit deal.

Keir Starmer told the BBC on Sunday that "whatever deal gets through, it should be subject to a referendum".

"The success of this amendment shows that MPs do not trust Boris Johnson not to run the country off a No-Deal cliff-edge a year down the line", said Naomi Smith, the CEO of Best for Britain, which campaigns for a new referendum.

Commons Leader Jacob Rees-Mogg said the Government was planning to give MPs a fresh chance to have a "meaningful vote" on the deal hammered out by Mr Johnson with Brussels on Monday.

Letwin said he would propose no more amendments this week. It did. But when it looked like the Government would win, they've kicked the can down the road (again).

The move followed a special Saturday sitting of the Commons where MPs voted by 322 to 306 in favour of an amendment withholding approval of his Brexit deal until legislation to implement it is in place.

He said parliament had "missed the opportunity to inject momentum into the ratification process" yet remained confident Brexit legislation would be passed by 31 October.

The EU's chief Brexit negotiator, Michel Barnier, met with EU ambassadors on Sunday to discuss the consequences of the letter sent by British Prime minister Boris Johnson asking for a Brexit extension.

The prime minister soon after sent a total of three letters: an unsigned photocopy of the request he was obliged to send under the Benn act, an explanatory letter from the UK's ambassador to the European Union and a personal letter explaining why Downing Street did not want an extension.

"The United Kingdom is seeking a further extension", the letter states, adding that the Brexit date could be brought forward if a deal is ratified before January 31.

Senior EU officials said it had been clear during the discussions among the leaders at a summit on Thursday that "they would grant an extension".
