On Monday, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has set out the priorities of his-led government at a parliamentary ceremony full of pomp and pageantry, also attended by the British Queen, with Brexit Deal on top agenda.
But with time running out for a cordial divorce deal before EU leaders meet later this week, few proposals seem likely to be enacted, with predictions of re-election.
Queen Elizabeth II has announced in a speech to lawmakers a list of 26 new bills ranges from executed a likely to be finalized EU divorce deal to criminal sentencing and the environment.
The 93-year-old queen said from a gilded throne, delivered words written by the government officials, reads: “My government’s priority has always been to secure the United Kingdom’s departure from the European Union on October 31.”
She continued, “My government intends to work towards a new partnership with the European Union, based on free trade and friendly cooperation.”
The number of policies has outlined included plans for an EU Withdrawal Agreement Bill to enshrine in the UK Law an agreement that PM Johnson is still fighting to agree with Brussels, before the departure date.
The Conservative leaders had often said Brexit Deal must happen this month, around three-years after Britons voted narrowly in a 2016 Referendum to leave the bloc after nearly five decades of membership.
However, it miserably failed to get the deal by an EU Summit on October 10 and October 11, PM Johnson risks having to ask Brussels to postpone under a law that intended to prevent a potentially damaging “no-deal” exit.
