The European Union is willing to postpone Britain for another three months if British Prime Minister Boris Johnson fails to lead his EU agreement through the British Parliament before October 31. There are several options for deferment that range from a month to a half year or even longer.
EU president Tusk is consulting with the 27 EU heads of government, and may come with an answer to the British request on Friday. The UK request for deferment refers to a three-month period; Germany is thinking of three weeks and France is talking about three days.
The chance that Great Britain next Thursday Thursday October 31 & #8211; as planned & #8211; leaving the European Union seems to have become very small.
Europe is therefore not planning to just postpone, but wants to know what the British are going to do with it. & #8220; Is it about 3-4 weeks for serious treatment in parliament? We will of course approve that. Or for example to organize elections or a second referendum, that is also a possibility & #8221 ;, according to politicians in the European Parliament in Strasbourg.
Prime Minister Johnson held a brief meeting yesterday with opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn (Labor). Johnson wants early parliamentary elections, but needs Labor's support for that. However, Corbyn first wants to deal with all Brexit issues and legally record them in legal texts, so that a possible new British government can no longer change that. And Labor also keeps open the possibility that such a complete Brexit package will be submitted to British voters in a referendum.
The British millionaire Richard Branson is counting on a new referendum on the brexit. He is convinced that the British will then choose to remain in the EU. The owner of Virgin Records and airline company Virgin, who currently resides in Israel, said that.
A new referendum is possible, if Prime Minister Boris Johnson fails to get his Brexit deal through parliament. "Brexit negotiations have already caused enormous damage to companies, employment and the British currency," said Branson. & #8220; It seems that people are increasingly understanding that they were misled in the first referendum. & #8221; According to the controversial businessman, the value of the British Pound will rise again and international trade will rise to the level it was before the first referendum.
Because Prime Minister Johnson has stopped the Brexit process, the British House of Commons can now resume regular activities. On Thursday, it is expected to vote on the speech by Queen Elizabeth II. That counts as a kind of vote of confidence about the government. It would be the first time in almost a century that a British cabinet loses such a mood. However, Prime Minister Boris Johnson's Conservative Party does not have a parliamentary majority. It is therefore highly questionable whether he can win the vote on the throne speech.
