Britain, June 13: Members of parliament have on Wednesday rejected a Labour Party-led effort to take control of United Kingdom (UK) parliament’s timetable, blocking the party’s latest attempt to cease no-deal Brexit.
According to BBC news reports, the commons have opposed the Labour move by voting 309 to 298 against the bill. If passed, the opponents of no-deal Brexit would have been given a chance to table the bill to thwart Britain leaving the European Union (EU) without any deal as scheduled on October 13 deadline.
The Tory benches have hailed the outcomes of the result. But, Labour Party chief Jeremy Corbyn replied by shouting “you won’t be cheering in September”.
Conservative Party leadership candidate Boris Johnson will on Wednesday commit to withdrawing Britain from the European Union (EU) as per scheduled on October 31, cautioning the ruling party members that “delays means defeat” at the campaign launch.
“We simply will not get a result if we give the slightest hint that we want to go on kicking the can down the road with yet more delay. The delay means defeat. The delay means Corbyn. Kick the can and we kick the bucket.”
In a throng race to replace British Prime Minister Theresa May, Brexit deal has become a touchstone policy for all the contenders, with Johson who has led a campaign around three years back to leave the bloc, took a tough stance on Brexit as said deadline of October, with or without an agreement.
Johnson’s message was clear that any further Brexit delays and the party risks opening doors to a govt-led by opposition Labour Party chief and veteran socialist Jeremy Corbyn, as in the 2016 voting on bloc membership.
