New exit agreement, which has a majority in parliament, could finally end the Brexit odyssey. In Brussels, there was a request for respite, which Johnson sent with his fist in pocket, and even if the new date remains to be seen, the EU has already approved the postponement of Brexit on Friday.
Boris Johnson’s opponents have good reason to be suspicious of the Prime Minister. If the opposition parties stay with their stance and actually prevent a new election on December 12 this coming Monday.
Johnson wants new elections since the opposition artificially cornered him, and he has lost his majority in the lower house.
Johnson’s emergency plan is not altruistic, if his deal was ratified by the House of Commons in the coming weeks, he could go into campaign with the Brexit-maker bonus.
However, Johnson’s schedule is also reasonable and fair: reasonable because conditions in the House of Commons are screaming for a new election, and fair because the MPs have the time they have called for discussions on the “EU Withdrawal Agreement Bill”.
New exit agreement, which has a majority in parliament, could finally end the Brexit odyssey
After more than 500 hours of parliamentary debate over Brexit odyssey in past three years and countless votes, it is difficult to argue that MPs were unable to adequately fulfill their control mandate.
The three days that Johnson initially planned for the deliberations of the Brexit Act may have been too short. But until the parliamentary resolution on 6 November, which was required by the electoral process, Parliament now have almost two weeks to put the law that translates the deal into British law over the bars.
Many voters feel that this is not about prudence and responsibility, but party tactics by the Liberal Democrats and Scottish Nationalists. They are against any form of Brexit, and their constituents expect them to do nothing but to block the exit.
The problem is the Labor Party, which has vowed to “respect” the 2016 referendum result in recent elections, but has become a “Remain Party”.
