The British House of Commons decision on Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s new Brexit deal continued to delay. Speaker of the House of Commons John Bercow did not allow a vote on Monday. He justified his refusal by saying that the government’s draft was the same as that of Saturday.

The goal of the adjournment in the lower house was to exclude a chaos Brexit

The lower house was supposed to vote in a special meeting on the Brexit deal last Saturday. However, MPs then voted to postpone the decision on the agreement, thereby inflicting a severe defeat on Johnson. The goal of the adjournment in the lower house was to exclude a chaos Brexit.

“The government’s draft content was the same as that of Saturday” – John Bercow

Government circles spoke of the “week of hell” in parliament. The British “Telegraph” quoted an unspecified government source as saying, “Everything is on the cutting edge”. Labor MPs and other parliamentarians want to see Johnson’s deal submitted to the people for approval in another referendum. Under these circumstances, at least some Labor MPs could agree.

Another expected amendment is that the whole of the UK should remain in a customs union with the rest of the EU, at least for a transitional period. This would be particularly difficult for Brexit hard-liners, as Britain would not easily be able to conclude trade agreements with the United States or other countries, that would be a major advantage of Brexit for advocates.

Green Party leader Philippe Lamberts said that the European Parliament wants to ratify the Brexit Treaty. “A landmark decision of the House of Commons for the Treaty, meaningful vote, is not enough”, said Lamberts in Strasbourg. The decision on the road map should be made on Monday night, said Lamberts.

Prime Minister Johnson weighs under the time pressure with his promise to lead the UK out of the EU on 31st October

Prime Minister Johnson weighs under the time pressure with his promise to lead the UK out of the EU on 31st October. In case of an unregulated exit from the community of states would threaten chaotic circumstances.

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said: “I would not rule out, if there are problems in Britain with the ratification steps, there could be a short technical extension”.

Johnson had recently negotiated an amended withdrawal agreement with the EU. The question of how the border between the EU member state of Ireland and Northern Ireland could remain open even after Brexit has been clarified. In addition, Johnson agreed with Brussels in a political statement that in the longer term there should only be a loose bond between his country and the EU.
