Boris and Suspending Parliament for No Deal Brexit

Boris and Suspending Parliament

Many may consider the suspension of Parliament as the end of democracy or even illegal.

Has Boris done this to:

  • Stop Parliament blocking any ‘No Deal’ Brexit?
  • Send a message to Europe that the UK is leaving ‘deal or no deal’ so let’s really try and get a solution to the Irish backstop?

Or has he done it to:

  • Force a vote of no-confidence in himself, as leader and the Government?
  • To then force a General Election – is this the real target?

With polls as they are (yougov 27/08/19): Conservatives would take 34% of the vote, Brexit party 13% and with DUP help that could be a majority in the House of Commons.

It’s a big risk, many think Corbyn is unelectable as Prime Minister but a combined Labour, Liberal and Scottish Nationalist Party coalition could stop Brexit in its tracks – if they combined to force a coalition government.

Parliament suspension is a huge risk at such a late stage but perhaps ‘big’ actions are needed to close Brexit off one way or the other.
