Brexit: MPs debating bill to block no

H3 uk brexit eu boris johnson parliament loses majority

After a devastating defeat in Parliament, Prime Minister Boris Johnson will return to the House of Commons Wednesday to try to salvage his Brexit plans or force a general election next month.

The US President claimed to be a "friend" of the Prime Minister's and told reporters not to "worry" about Boris Johnson's chances of succeeding in his historic vote this evening.

Lawmakers voted 328 to 301 to take control of parliamentary business in order to debate a bill on Wednesday that would prevent Johnson from taking the United Kingdom out of the European Union without a withdrawal agreement on October 31.

"We're not going to be voting with Johnson today". Among those bounced out were former International Development Secretary Rory Stewart; Kenneth Clarke, a former treasury chief and the longest-serving member of the House of Commons; and Nicholas Soames, the grandson of Johnson hero Winston Churchill.

The French government is urging businesses in France to step up preparations for a no-deal Brexit, saying Downing Street has offered no new proposals to replace the Irish backstop.

The bill, which instructs Johnson to request another Brexit extension if he can not secure a deal with the European Union in the coming weeks, was approved by 329 votes to 300 in its initial phase in the House of Commons on Wednesday.

Johnson said no deal, no matter how hard, would be better than electing Corbyn and sending him to Brussels to negotiate. "We want a general election, but we're not dancing to his tune", Labour Brexit spokesman Keir Starmer said.

"I am determined to lead this country forward and take Britain out of the European Union on October 31".

The main opposition Labour Party has signaled it will oppose an election until legislation is in place to block the no-deal exit.

Rams, Goff agree to terms on extension
They have been on the clock to complete an extension with Goff since Wentz signed his extension with Philadelphia. She showed up to Super Bowl LIII decked out in Rams gear and they confirmed they were a couple in March.

"Humiliation for Johnson as Tory rebels turn against him", read the front page of the left-wing Guardian newspaper, while The Independent wrote: "Johnson loses control". To succeed, it needs the support of two-thirds of MPs.

"I don't want an election but if MPs vote tomorrow to stop the negotiations and to compel another pointless delay of Brexit, potentially for years, then that will be the only way to resolve this", Johnson said on Tuesday.

The second most powerful man in the Labour Party, John McDonnell, said the no-deal blocking legislation had to get assent from Queen Elizabeth, putting the law onto the statute book, before the party would agree to an election.

A court in Edinburgh is also due to issue its ruling on Wednesday in a legal challenge against Johnson's bid to suspend Parliament.

On the BBC after the vote, Soames sounded as stoic as his grandfather: "That's fortunes of war", he said.

Johnson took office in July, three years after the 2016 referendum vote to leave the European Union, promising to deliver Brexit whatever happens.

A "rebel alliance" of 21 Conservative MPs have on Tuesday night dealt an expected and humiliating defeat to Johnson in the House of Commons.

Labour Party officials also said they need a guarantee that the election would be held before October 31, to prevent a no deal Brexit from happening by default on that day. And even before the session begun, Prime Minister Johnson was dealt a blow as one of his own MPs demonstratively crossed the floor of the debating chamber, to join the opposition Liberals, a rare event in British politics.
