EU plans to offer Boris Johnson no-deal Brexit extension

EU plans to offer Boris Johnson no-deal Brexit extension

A bid to stop Theresa May's successor suspending Parliament to force through a no-deal Brexit moved closer yesterday. The Office of Budget Responsibility warned this week that a no-deal Brexit would require an additional £30bn in government borrowing.

Boris Johnson, the front-runner to next week become Britain's prime minister, has repeatedly vowed that the country will leave without an agreement if no deal is reached by the end of October. "The spending control framework seems to be under pressure, with major announcements being made outside fiscal events, and the Conservative leadership making pledges that would prove expensive if pursued", it said.

Boris Johnson, the man likely to enter Number 10 next week, was given a fresh warning of the challenges he will face as Mr Hammond promised to do "everything in my power" to block a no-deal. They are globalists; I think many do not believe in the nation-state, they do not believe in Britain, they don't have the confidence of the people who elected them, unfortunately, they've proven themselves to be a bunch of liars.

A pro-Brexit demonstator is seen outside Parliament in London on Wednesday, as the battle continued over how the departure will actually happen.

I very much regret his attitude to Brexit. Where we might have expected bluster, he often gave long, detailed and sometimes complex and well thought-out answers to questions.

But then: "I thought, 'Oh my God, they haven't got a plan, they haven't got a plan'".

Brexit risks feel more prominent than they did two years ago, with the no-deal option being countenanced at the highest levels, as both remaining candidates for British prime minister explicitly countenancing the possibility of United Kingdom leaving the European Union without a deal on October 31, said Robert Chote, chairman of Office for Budget Responsibility.

Thursday's 315-274 Commons vote saw several ministers abstain rather than support the government's call to keep suspending Parliament as an option.

"This document is the only way to leave the EU in an orderly manner", EU Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier told the BBC in an interview broadcast Thursday.

The measures do not amount to an outright block on suspending parliament but could make it much more hard to bypass lawmakers. The notion that you can just rush that through - while feasible, strikes me as very very unlikely. I think the previous prime minister has done a very bad job with Brexit.
