British MPs reject Boris Johnson's plan to fast-track Brexit deal

The House of Commons during the debate for the European Union Bill Second Reading

Opposition parties will be looking to amend the withdrawal agreement bill motion significantly and that may just force the government to pull the motion altogether, considering this isn't the Brexit deal they are now pursuing.

After he was forced by opponents into the humiliation of asking the European Union for a delay that he had promised he would never ask for, Johnson is battling to ram legislation through the House of Commons that will enact his last-minute Brexit deal.

Jo Swinson, leader of the Lib Dems, said the fight against Brexit is not over.

House of Commons Speaker John Bercow ruled the government's bid to push the same Brexit proposal through parliament twice in three days "repetitive and disorderly".

The Daily Telegraph reported that Mr Johnson had begun calling European Union leaders on Tuesday night to tell them he would not accept a three-month delay, but has reportedly not ruled out approving a short extension of around 10 days to allow his deal to get through Parliament.

A No 10 source indicated that if the Prime Minister was forced to accept a delay until the new year, he would push for a general election instead.

"The public doesn't want any more delays, neither do other European leaders and neither do I. Let's get Brexit done on 31 October and move on". Naturally, there is real anger in parliament at the decision to restrict debate to just 3 days and it is possible that the government's business motion could be defeated - if that happens then the United Kingdom would remain in the European Union beyond the 1st of November (assuming that the European Union agrees to grant an extension, of course). "This Parliament is broken".

The second vote that was held Tuesday night was related to the timeline of the further passage of the bill, and that vote failed, meaning that some of the members who voted in favor of the bill voted against the proposed three days they were being given to evaluate and amend the bill.

The Prime Minister expressed "disappointment" that they had not been prepared to follow it up by agreeing the timetable motion.

Senior EU officials said the 27 countries that would remain in the EU after Britain leaves would "certainly not" react immediately.

"With great regret, the Bill will have to be pulled and we will have to go forward to a general election".

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, who has called for a second referendum on Brexit, said Mr Johnson was trying to "blindside" MPs into supporting a "rotten bill".

Ex-Tory MP Rory Stewart has called for more time to debate and scrutinse the EU Withdrawal Agreement Bill.

The tight timetable for voting on the proposed legislation has caused some controversy - the document was published October 21st and runs to 110 pages, but MPs will vote on whether to pass it into law the evening of the very next day, raising questions about whether they'll have adequate time to read, analyse and make a judgment on its contents.

The second reading vote on the withdrawal agreement bill will take place at 1800 GMT.

The move comes as Johnson and his supporters, who are in favor of Brexit, push to take action before an October 31 deadline.
