British PM flouts parliament over Brexit delay

“I will not negotiate a delay with the EU,” PM Boris Johnson announced after Parliament voted by 322 to 306 for an amendment to delay approval of his new Brexit deal with Europe until he sought an extension of the Oct. 31 deadline. The House had been called into a special “super-Saturday” session to approve the deal. The amendment put the brakes on the process.
After his defeat, Johnson positively refused to ask for a three-month delay from Brussels, as the amendment required, and would instead introduce legislation on his Brexit deal next week. He said he would tell EU leaders to reject Parliament’s letter asking for a delay. “We should get Brexit done on Oct. 31 with our new deal so that the country can move on,” he said.

Parliament rejected a former Brexit deal three times, when it was presented in the last two years by Theresa May. forcing her to step down as prime minister. Johnson expects the EU to cooperate with his plan to outmaneuver parliament and reject any further delays.

    What was the purpose of Hollywood style ‘conference’ by Pence and Pompeo … Turkey is simply continuing their offensive. Today world media are reporting this is a clear fact. Was the photo-op just to quiet US citizens who do not read and watch anything than FOX?

      Debka is not reporting on Turkish advancement in Syria. They only post news favorable to their agenda. This manipulated ‘ceasefire’ ‘negotiated’ by USA must be spoken about. Why isn’t Debka reporting on it?!

      The most important current problem for our Zionist friends is that the Syrian regime change war is coming to an end. This means that Syria will start rebuilding its self and this means that the opportunity for the Balkanization of Syria end. This makes ✡them✡ very sad so they will use every trick and opportunity to play the guilt card on Americans in the hope that their will be enough popular support to reverse this decision. American wars for Israel are always the ultimate goal of the ✡Tribe✡
