Boris Johnson promises fast-track United Kingdom visas to scientists after Brexit

Britain's Prime Minister Boris Johnson

It follows reports that if Mr Johnson is defeated in a vote of confidence when MPs return to Westminster in September, he will seek to delay polling in an election until after October 31, by which time the United Kingdom will be out of the EU.

Johnson became prime minister last month after winning a Conservative Party leadership contest on a promise to leave the European Union on October 31, with or without a divorce agreement. As of Friday, Boris Johnson's chief of staff cancelled leave for government advisers until 31 October.

But in a letter to Cabinet Secretary Sir Mark Sedwill, the Labour leader said the move would be an "unprecedented, unconstitutional and anti-democratic abuse of power".

UK Government sources have told The Sunday Telegraph that dates for a bilateral meeting are now being discussed, raising hopes of a breakthrough in agreeing a deal for the UK to leave the European Union with a deal on Oct 31.

Brussels has so far said it will not renegotiate the terms of withdrawal, making a no-deal Brexit on Oct 31 increasingly likely.

Mr Johnson has written to all members of the civil service telling them the government's main focus was now to prepare for a no-deal Brexit, a consummation that should clear the raging confusion.

A senior Conservative source said: "Jeremy Corbyn will do anything to get his hand on the keys to number 10".

Mr Lister also said that compensation would be considered "on a case-by-case basis" for those who had already booked leave. "No amount of letter-writing political stunts will change the fact that politicians don't get to choose which public votes they respect".

Early this week, Johnson dispatched his top diplomat and foreign trade minister to Washington in the hopes of fast-tracking a post-Brexit trade deal with the U.S.

The pound, which has lost 3.7% of its value against the dollar since arch-Brexiteer Prime Minister Boris Johnson's arrival in office in late July, sank to $1.2056, the weakest it has been since January 2017, and was last down by 0.5% at $1.2072.

"We were home to the world's first national DNA database, we discovered graphene, and our cutting-edge scientists should be proud to follow in the footsteps of titans like Ada Lovelace and Nobel Laureates Francis Crick and Peter Higgs".

Talking about immigration system and fast track visa route she said, "We want Britain to be the most prosperous economy in Europe with an immigration system that attracts the brightest and best global talent".

"The government may try and reduce the barriers to entry for scientists but they can not reduce turmoil that would be caused to science in the United Kingdom by a no-deal Brexit", Geim told The Times yesterday.
