Brexit Standoff as Boris Johnson Defies MPs' Vote to Delay EU Exit
20 October, 2019, 16:29
In a phonecall with European Council President Donald Tusk after the vote, Johnson said he would send the letter mandated by MPs to seek more time, a EU source told AFP.
Beneath the phrases of the so-known as Benn Act, which MP's passed in a whine in confidence to block a no-deal Brexit, Mr Johnson became compelled to jot down to the European Union requesting a 3-month Brexit extension after the failure to true a deal by 11pm the day old to this.
"[Mr Johnson] can no longer use the threat of a no-deal crash-out to blackmail MPs to support his sell-out deal", the Labour leader said after the vote.
In a move created to prevent the United Kingdom from slipping out of the European Union without a deal by design or default, Letwin's amendment delays Parliament's ultimate decision on Johnson's Brexit deal until the very end of the process.
The EU's chief Brexit negotiator, Michel Barnier, said Tusk would consult with other leaders "in the next days".
UK lawmakers inflicted an embarrassing procedural defeat on Boris Johnson on Saturday (19 October), forcing the UK Prime Minister to request a Brexit extension from European Union leaders.
In his speech, Johnson said he would seek a great Brexit deal - but that if the Europeans denied him this he would take Britain out of the union with no deal - and keep the USA $50 billion May promised as part of the divorce agreement she made with Brussels.
The Brexit Coordinator for the European Parliament tweeted that the chamber will "consider the outcome of today's vote for the Letwin amendment on Monday" and remarked the importance of the marches taking place outside the British Parliament calling for a second referendum as it shows "how important a close EU-UK".
Johnson won the top job by staking his career on getting Brexit done by October 31 after his predecessor, Theresa May, was forced to delay the departure date twice.
Though she later succeeded in negotiating a Brexit deal, she failed three times to get it through the House of Commons and was ultimately forced to request two Brexit delays. "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".
"This deal would inevitably lead to a Trump trade deal, forcing the U.K.to diverge from the highest standards and expose our families to chlorine-washed chicken and hormone-treated beef", said the leader of the opposition Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, referring to fears of chemically treated imports from the United States.
The amendment means that parliamentarians will withhold support for a Brexit deal until it has passed into law.
"The president held a conversation with the British prime minister and shared his view for the need for a swift clarification", an official at the French presidency told Reuters.
Leader of the House of Commons Jacob Rees-Mogg said later the vote would happen on Monday. These and other parliamentary devices will further challenge the government's ability to pass the required legislation by the October 31 deadline.
Lawmakers voted 322 to 306 in favour of an amendment that called for the legislation around the withdrawal deal to be approved first. Asked on BBC Breakfast whether the PM's move was "childish, Conservative Brexiteer MP Nigel Evans said: "Well he was going to be criticised if he didn't send the letter, because it would have been against the law".
He urged MPs to end years of uncertainty that has weighed on the economy and divided the nation - but they refused, warning his deal would leave Britain worse off.
