On Wednesday, the British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has announced that the suspension of the Parliament would be extended till October 14 – two weeks ahead of leaving the European Union (EU) – infuriating anti-Brexit MPs. 

MPs will later return to London in recent times, providing the pro-EU lawmakers less time than likely to thwart PM Johnson’s Brexit deal before the UK is about to leave the EU on October 31.   

The Prime Minister told reporters that “we’re going to do it on October 14.

PM Johnson is likely to attend one last European Union Summit three days later.

He continued, “There will be ample time on both sides of that crucial October 17 summit, ample time in parliament for MPs to debate.”

The UK Pound has declined around 1 percent against the US Dollar and Euro on the news, slides 0.94 percent to $1.2179, while the Euro bough 91.09 penny.

Sources in PM Johnson’s Downing Street Office has said that only after four sitting days in the Lower House of Commons might lost as a result. 

Britain Parliament is about to return from its Summer holidays on September 3. 

According to the deed, it is suspended for the annual conferences of the three major parties.

The first one is of the anti-Brexit Liberal Democrats, commenced on September 14 and the last one is that of PM Johnson’s assisting Conservatives, ending on October 2.  

However, PM Johnson wants the Parliament to return after 12-days on October 14. 

In 2018, the party’s conference recess has started from September 13 and concluded in October 9, six days after the conclusion of the party conferences. 

In 2017, the summer break was from September 14 to October 9, five days after the earlier conference has ended. 

It further provoked opposition MPs, who are involved in trying to limit Brexit. 

Labour Party’s Deputy Leader Tom Watson has said that “this action is an utterly scandalous affront to our democracy. We cannot let this happen.”

Liberal Democrat Brexit spokesperson Tom Brake tweets, “The mother of all parliaments will not allow him to shut the people’s parliament out of the biggest decision facing our country. His declaration of war will be met with an iron fist.”

The Green MP Caroline Lucas has called it as a “constitutional outrage.”

Boris Johnson and Sarah Wollaston was “behaving like a tin pot dictator,” while her fellow former Conservative MP Anna Soubry said that the British Democracy was “under threat from a ruthless PM.”

The UK Prime Minister has further urged for leaving the EU with October 31, its deadline, which is already delayed twice – with or without a divorce deal from Brussels. 

On Tuesday, six opposition parties has pledged to seek legislative changes to protect a no-deal Brexit.
