Boris Johnson’s attempt to suspend parliament to avoid scrutiny of his plans for a reckless No Deal Brexit is an outrage and a threat to our democracy. tweets Jeremy
UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has promised a renewed effort to secure a deal with the EU before the Brexit deadline.
Brexit deal in lurch and political mess created get encouraging response from EU.
The UK’s Brexit negotiators will now meet their EU counterparts twice a week next month, in the run up to a crucial summit on October 17-18.
It follows a backlash from MPs and opponents of a no-deal Brexit against the prime minister’s decision to suspend Parliament next month.
The EU said it expected the UK to come up with concrete proposals. A European Commission spokesperson said its doors remain open and insisted it had demonstrated our willingness to work 24/7 throughout this long process.
Mr Johnson said he had been encouraged by the response from EU leaders but said it is now time for both sides to step up the tempo.
