'No-deal' Brexit dealt blow by United Kingdom parliament

'No-deal' Brexit dealt blow by United Kingdom parliament

Tory Eurosceptic Jacob Rees-Mogg, an ally of Mr Johnson, poured cold water on the significance of the Commons vote aimed at preventing the new prime minister suspending Parliament.

"The prime minister is obviously disappointed that a number of ministers failed to vote in this afternoon's division", said a statement from May's office, which concluded with a slightly foreboding statement: "No doubt her successor will take this into account when forming their government".

US President Donald Trump has said Boris Johnson would do "a great job" as United Kingdom prime minister and they would have "a very good relationship".

Al Jazeera's Jonah Hull reports.

Johnson has made the UK's withdrawal on October 31 - "with or without a deal" - the central thrust of his campaign to become the next leader of the country's ruling Conservative Party, and has never ruled out the possibility of proroguing parliament in order to get his way.

Mr Hammond, explaining his decision, said: "It should not be controversial to believe that Parliament be allowed to sit, and have a say, during a key period in our history". All are expected to oppose a no-deal Brexit from the backbenches.

Ms James said, in a statement after her resignation, that she was "increasingly uncomfortable" about the rhetoric developing on Brexit.

She said: "It is important that we have a Conservative government, particularly given the nature of the opposition we have at the moment". "It is a proud, great nation and it will remain our partner even if Britain is no longer a member of the European Union".

"Well, I don't know if he does" but if Boris asks him to serve then yes "of course" he would.

He added: "I want to understand from Michel Barnier what his position is in carving out citizens' rights, why he has said, thus far, no to that".

He said he spoke with Johnson on Thursday and predicted a positive direction for U.S. -U.K. with him occupying 10 Downing Street.

"He's a different kind of a guy but they say I'm a different kind of a guy too", Mr Trump told reporters.

"It will be described as a technical delay to save Boris from political embarrassment but then we will have time to find an agreement", a senior European Union diplomat told the newspaper. Theresa May has already gone down as possibly the worst ever British Prime Minister and I think many would believe that Corbyn is probably one of the worst ever leaders of the opposition.
