Parliament Rejects Motion to Stop Future PM From Pursuing No-Deal Brexit

Boris Johnson during the launch of his leadership campaign in central London said that no deal Brexit should not be blocked

A motion seeking to prevent a no-deal Brexit under the future prime minister has been defeated in the House of Commons on Wednesday and has boosted Tory leadership contenders seeking a clean break from the EU.

Almost three years after the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union, and after three failed attempts to push a deal through Parliament, there is still deadlock and uncertainty about how to deliver BREXIT.

Under the Brexit withdrawal agreement agreed a year ago between outgoing British Prime Minister Theresa May and her fellow EU leaders, Britain would owe the union approximately 39 billion (around 44 billion euros).

"The fact that Labour failed to take control of the order paper today tells you nearly nothing about how parliament could block a leader committed to no-deal". "But this is just the start, not the end of our efforts to block 'no deal, '" said Labour Party Brexit spokesman Keir Starmer.

If passed the motion would have would allowed MPs to take control of the House of Commons agenda - which is normally in the hands of the Government - on Tuesday 25 June. But all Tory leadership candidates need to know that we will not give up on the fight to stop a no deal Brexit.

Many economists have argued a no-deal Brexit would cause economic turmoil and plunge Britain into recession.

Led by the main opposition Labour Party, the cross-party motion was backed by other opposition parties, including the Liberal Democrats, Scottish Nationalist Party (SNP), Plaid Cymru, the Party of Wales, and the Greens.

Why did they want this?

.

"It has to be respected by whoever is the next British prime minister", he continued.

Some opinion polls have shown a slight shift in favour of remaining in the European Union, but there has yet to be a decisive change in attitudes and many in Britain say they have become increasingly bored by Brexit.

In the debate preceding the vote, Starmer claimed that MPs had been forced to act due to declared intentions by Tory leadership candidates such as Boris Johnson and Dominic Raab to prorogue parliament. "No-deal must be prevented by government and parliament".

Fear within the ranks of the Conservative Party has only been exasperated following the Peterborough by election last week, where a split vote between Nigel Farage's Brexit Party and the Conservatives saw a Labour victory in the leave stronghold.
