The Prime Minister of the UK, Boris Johnson, has announced that Parliament may have extra time to study his EU Withdrawal Agreement provided that Parliament agrees to a government motion to be tabled on Monday, 28th calling for a General Election on December 12th.
The PM said: “Well what we’ve decided is that we have got a way forward for this country and the EU.
“We’ve got a great deal on Brexit, and for the first time in three-and-a-half years, Parliament voted to endorse a way out of the EU.”
He went on to say: “Unfortunately, they voted to delay the final approval of that deal which they’ve endorsed… if this Parliament is anything to go by, that delay could go on for a very long time.”
“The way to get this done, the way to get Brexit done, is to be reasonable with Parliament and say ‘if you genuinely want more time to examine this excellent Brexit deal, you can have it’, but they have to agree to a general election on December 12th.
“This Parliament has been going on for a long time without a majority, it’s refusing to deliver Brexit, it’s impossible to deliver legislation.
“It’s time frankly that the opposition summoned up the nerve to submit themselves to our collective boss, which is the people of the UK.”
