CBI: Threatening no-deal Brexit like saying 'I’ll shoot my foot off'

Anti-Brexit demonstrators are seen with European flags and placards protesting outside the Houses of Parliament against the UK leaving the European Union after Brexit was delayed until 31st October 2019 as Prime Minister Theresa May failed to get her Br

But Mr Stewart, the International Development Secretary, said it would be "very, very tough" for the United Kingdom to be out of the European Union by the October 31 deadline.

The motion was submitted by the Labour Party during the so-called opposition day debate and had the backing of former cabinet minister Oliver Letwin and leaders of the Scottish National Party, the Welsh Plaid Cymru, the Liberal Democrats party and the Green Party.

"There will be other procedural mechanisms we can use", shadow Brexit Secretary Sir Keir Starmer said.

Fairbairn also warned that a no-deal Brexit was not just about "short-term disruption", saying that there has been too much focus on "empty shelves and poor availability of lettuces".

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn was overheard rebuking MPs, saying that they "won't be cheering in September" as they celebrated the defeat of the motion.

Apart from the most obvious reason, that their constituents simply want them to "get on with it", some are hopeful that there will be another opportunity to vote for a deal.

MPs opposed the motion by 309 votes to 298.

"Have some respect for the people that lost their lives and homes", one user commented. Up to 115,000 people are thought to have died of radiation-related illnesses.

Labour said it would continue to fight to prevent a no-deal Brexit after the latest cross-party attempt by MPs to take control of Commons business was narrowly voted down.

The EU's no-deal plans come as Britain's Conservative Party is picking a new party head and prime minister to replace Theresa May after her three consecutive failures to pass through the House of Commons the Withdrawal Agreement that she secured with the bloc.

Hammond, speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a meeting of European Union finance ministers in Luxembourg on Friday, also warned whoever succeeds Theresa May not to withhold Britain's dues to the bloc.

"On that date I should have voted for a deal".

Lawmakers in all the opposition parties, and some in the Conservatives, fear that a no-deal could inflict serious economic and political damage on Britain, and have vowed to find a way to try to prevent it. On this poll Boris Johnson is only one of the candidates that give the Tory's a majority (140 seats) at the next election alongside a substantial 14% lead.

"Stride told MPs: "(Ms Vaz) raised the issue of proroguing Parliament as, I'm sort of paraphrasing her comments, a device to perhaps ensure a no-deal situation in the absence of Parliament sitting. "He is the only candidate that reduces the Brexit party's support enough (below 20%) to do this".
