Brexit Maneuvering – Boris Johnson Requests Queen Suspend Parliament, Queen Elizabeth Agrees – Brexit Opposition Plan Thwarted, For Now…

Internal British opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn was developing a plan to stop the U.K from leaving the European Union through legislation aimed at blocking any Brexit without a pre-existing deal.  Additionally, Corbyn was proposing calling a vote of ‘no confidence’ in a scheme aimed at weakening Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s no-deal brexit.

To thwart that opposition plan, PM Boris Johnson asked Queen Elizabeth to suspend Parliament, thereby cancelling the legislative time Corbyn would have to form his anti-Brexit law and scheme. Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II agreed to suspend Parliament.

In addition, Prime Minister Johnson has significantly diminished the ‘no-confidence’ scheme by stating if Corbyn follows through PM Johnson would continue to proceed with the Brexit process, and call for a snap election immediately following the October 31st ‘no deal’ exit from the EU.   The globalist opposition is going bananas.

LONDON – […] The controversy here lies solely in the timing of the move. Britain is on track to leave the European Union on Oct. 31 and anti-Brexit lawmakers were working frantically to try and thwart the departure via the House of Commons — with plans in motion to try and pass legislation to tie the hands of Johnson’s government when Parliament returns from recess on Sept. 3rd.

Specifically, lawmakers were trying to ensure that Britain is not allowed to leave without a formal withdrawal agreement with the E.U., similar to the kind that May secured with E.U. leaders but failed to get through Parliament — leading ultimately to her resignation in June. Johnson has said he would prefer to leave with a deal, but is prepared to leave without one if E.U. leaders won’t meet British demands.

Tuesday’s announcement torpedoes those opposition plans to tie the government’s hands, icing Parliament for the majority of the remainder of the time left before Oct. 31. Speaker John Bercow, who has made no secret of his anti-Brexit sympathies, called the move a “constitutional outrage.” (link)

With so many prior lies, delays and stall tactics by British leadership beholden to the ideology of multinational influence, there were/are many people concerned about whether Prime Minister Johnson could actually be trusted to deliver on the Brexit referendum supported by the majority of the British voters.

Today’s strong moves by the prime minister seem to dissuade some of those fears.  What Great Britain needs is a strong leader who will stand in the gap against relentless leftist opposition and deliver what the people of Britain have voted for.

Today, despite his prior orientation toward fence-sitting weasel-speak, Johnson provides some cautious optimism that he might just be the strong leader the British deserve.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson sent the following letter to members of the House of Commons:

    Having read through the thread there seems to be a lack of understanding/confusion as to what has happened here.
    Yes, the Queen has agreed to the prorogation (suspension) of Parliament from 10th Sept to Oct 14th. There is no personal choice involved in this decision, the monarch has no absolute power any more and will agree to do what her ministers recommended. I like to think she is happy with the outcome!

    There are still several possibilities regarding Brexit or remaining in the EU despite the comments up-thread. Boris’ view of Brexit is still dangerously close to the previous PM Teresa May and could conceivably end with us remaining in the EU Customs Union forever. This would be a disaster of epic proportions for the British people in my opinion – remainers think differently.

    Parliament, for all the claims about being democratic, is anything but. They are ignoring the referendum result where the largest number of the people ever, voted to leave. They also conveniently ignore the fact that both major parties in the 2017 General Election said they would honour the referendum result and make sure that Brexit happens. These two parties represent about 80% of the electorate, but about half the MP’s are voting to remain.

    Depending on which decisions are taken to try to thwart leaving, the very slightly reduced time available may get us out, but I am not going to hold my breath on this.
    I am hopeful that a new general election based on a no-confidence vote will not get through Parliament before the Brexit date of 31st Oct and we will leave on time with the no deal promised by the EU.

    Nigel Farage is the only trustworthy person in sight, but he would have to perform spectacularly if we end up with an election to make a difference – but this may have to happen and could.

      Great synopsis! Even Nigel Farage’s latest tweet shows he is very cautious about Boris’s true intentions. Boris did vote previously in favor of May’s exit deal. But a good sign is that Moss-Reeg is on Boris’s team and he is a staunch Brexiteer.

      I agree totally, Steve.

      Parliament is just part of the problem. The House of Lords are rabidly Remain. They’ll do everything in their power to keep England tied to the EU.

      Both Parliament and the Lords seem to despise Boris and Farage. If Boris cannot stand this wind that’s coming at him. The people will HAVE to turn to Farage.

      I believe the Queen was pressured into granting the suspension. There is so much dirt on the family, that the U.S. knows, I think she got a phone call.

      Call me a conspiracy theorist, I don’t mind.

        Not really. The Queen’s role in politics is symbolic; that’s part of the constitutional settlement. Were she to interfere in politics, there would be a vote to abolish the monarchy tout suite.

      He appears to flip flop all of the time. In the beginning the Labour Party was technically pro-remain, but he intimated that he wanted Brexit. He genuinely isn’t very bright so he probably has a hard time understanding the issues. He is technically a socialist, but a darling of notable communists. But don’t get me started on his ex-girlfriend Dianne Abbott , who he promptly gave a position to. She’s a bag of rocks and regularly shows it doubtful she ever received even remedial math class.

        Corbin is a hardcore communist. He knows that communism is impossible in Britain while being tied to corrupt European bankers which is why he almost certainly still supports Brexit in the closet. But he has to oppose Brexit because the rest of his party does so, he’ll be out as party leader otherwise.

          I think she was a student leader which was her springboard into politics. Not brilliant but not dumb as a tree. I’d guess she’d beat Corbyn in an IQ test. And even quite smart people look quite dumb when they’re trying to defend the indefensible. Dunno which side she’s on now but she always used to be anti EU. Most far lefties were.

    Opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn developed a scheme, this summer, to stall Brexit indefinitely with the assistance of the EU. He was going to unite, in a “one-night-stand,” Labor and Conservative “Remainer” MPs to pass a bill granting the EU a veto on Britain’s exit.

    Now we understand EU President Donald Tusk’s puzzling G-7 August 24th arrival speech, to the effect that Britain could only leave having satisfied EU pre-conditions. Tusk apparently believed Corbyn’s parliamentary maneuver was a done deal.

    Donald Tusk spoke too soon.

    On his return to London from the G-7, Boris Johnson’s Cabinet gave him a mandate to ask the Queen to suspend Parliament between September 10 and October 15.** (By the way, this is the period during which British political parties — Conservative / Labor / Brexit / Liberals / Scottish Nationalists et al — have annual Party Conferences and no real Parliamentary business is ever done.) Per long precedent, the Queen went along with her Prime Minister’s request — she really had no choice.

    Suspending Parliament between September 10 and October 15 throws a big procedural wrench in Corbyn’s scheme — Parliamentary bills are subject to elaborate protocols of political caucuses, printed documents issued days before three formal “readings,” namely debate sessions, and all sort of preliminary votes in both the House of Commons and House of Lords. No wonder the “Remainers” went nuts.

    Further compounding “Remainer” dis-array, Boris Johnson is threatening elections in late autumn. Conservative and Labor “Remainer” MPs will need to guard their flanks for exposer of their true colors. They all campaigned three years ago on a BREXIT PLATFORM and already have a difficult time explaining why Brexit did not actually happen. A “one-night-stand” solidarity vote with another political party would dangerously irritate their party constituents.

    ** Parliament would actually open on October 14, but this opening is a very elaborate business with a formal visit by a crowned Queen in horse and carriage, folks walking backwards with gold maces (and doing their best not to trip), door knocking rituals etc., which concludes with a “Speech-from-the- Throne” written by Boris Johnson and approved by his cabinet. In short, October 14 will be very busy with pageantry.

          It was a quadraphonic concert – huge banks of speakers in the “four corners” (it was actually a round auditorium).
