The British Parliament is Slowly Wringing the Neck Around
The British Parliament is Slowly Wringing the Neck Around. The British government has lost a special vote on the Brexit for the second day in a row in the House of Commons.
The parliamentarians obliged the government of Prime Minister Theresa May to come up with a new plan within three days next week should her Brexit proposal be voted down. The MPs are increasingly taking control of the Brexit.
Next Tuesday, the British Parliament will vote on the agreement that Prime Minister May reached with the European Union at the end of 2018. But it is expected that May will not find a majority in the House of Commons. Both the opposition and a significant part of its Conservative group are against the agreement.
‘If and when the prime minister’s plan is voted down on Tuesday, then we can not wait until 12 February. The situation is now too urgent. ‘
The opposition and part of the Conservatives today already supported an amendment that obliges May to come up with an alternative Brexit plan next week within three days if the agreement is voted down. Moreover, parliamentarians will then be able to amend that new plan immediately.
Frequently the May government then had 21 days to return to parliament with a new plan.
But parliamentarians do not want to wait that long: the amendment to an order emotion – which in itself is quite exceptional – that brings the deadline back to three days, was approved by 308 members of parliament. Two hundred ninety-seven others voted against.
Officially, the parliament wants to limit the chance of a Brexit without agreement. “The goal is to avoid the government going out of time towards a ‘no deal’.
If and when the prime minister’s plan is voted down on Tuesday, then we can not wait until 12 February for the next vote. The situation is now too urgent “, was heard in political circles.
