Queen Elizabeth II Likely To Suspend British Parliament, Report - TNBC UK

On Wednesday, Queen Elizabeth II could be asked to agree to suspend the Britain Parliament, said a senior BBC journalist Nick Robinson.

Britsih Prime Minister Boris Johnson has denied to rule out suspending or proroguing the Parliament, to protect it from blocking his plans to take Britain out of the European Union by October 31. 

PM Johnson continued that a Queen’s speech would take place after the suspension of the Parliament, to outline his “very exciting agenda.” 

It means that the MPs are unexpected to have time to pass laws to prevent a no-deal Brexit. 

Thereafter, Tory backbencher Dominic Grieve has called the move as “an outrageous act”.

He further warned that it could lead to a vote of no-confidence in PM Johnson, adding that “this government will come down.”

A former BBC political editor has said that “hearing that the Queen could be asked to agree to prorogue parliament as early as today,” adding that “She’s in Balmoral. Would be done by Order in Council. Only one source. Not confirmed. Watch this space.”

But the British Prime Minister has said that it was “completely untrue” to recommend the suspension was inspired by a wish to force through no deal. 

He also said that he didn’t want to wait until after Brexit “before getting on with our plans to take this country forward,” and insisted there would still be enough time for MPs to debate the United Kingdom’s departure.

“We need new legislation. We’ve got to be bringing forward new and important bills and that’s why we are going to have a Queen’s Speech,” added PM Johnson.
