EU moves towards Brexit delay as PM Johnson seeks election to break impasse
EU leaders should delay Brexit after Prime Minister Boris Johnson paused legisla...
As the clock ticks down to the deadline for Britain’s departure on Oct. 31, Brexit is hanging in the balance as divided lawmakers debate when, how and even whether it should happen more than three years since the 2016 referendum.
Tusk recommended late on Tuesday evening that the leaders of the remaining 27 member states back a delay.
Johnson had hoped to make the delay request unnecessary by passing the Brexit law fast enough to leave on time. A source in his Downing Street office said there now needed be a fresh election.
They then opposed by 322 to 308 votes Johnson’s extremely tight timetable.

Irish PM Leo Varadkar welcomed the vote in favor of Johnson’s legislation.
In his statement after the votes, Johnson did not mention an election. He would need the support of parliament to call one.
Opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn called on Johnson to work with other parties to ensure a reasonable timetable to discuss the deal. Some in the Labour Party expect a short extension, with Brexit being resolved and then an election within months.

منور ي عمو ترب I don't really understand what the end game here is, they'll have to leave sooner or later so why delay? The only thing that will solve this never ending fur ball is not yet another election, its another referendum! Stop telling the people what they want and ask them what they want and with that in hand proceed as indicated. Otherwise the United Kingdom may cease to be United.
What has the dirty bugger got against Imps? Its not within his control unless he concedes no deal position then the vote would pass. Personally indy for Scotland and then we can choose our own path The sad thing is that it Labour ditched Corbyn and ran anti-Brexit, they'd crush the Tories, but they won't, and as a result the UK is screwed. The Tories will keep going hard brexit till everyone else is worn out and just wants it done with. All these egos, no patriots.
Send them both packing. ثورة_العراق شعارنا_نريد_وطن🇮🇶✌شاهد_ايها_العالم_ماذا_سيحدث_25_10 شارك_الهاشتاك♥️✌ Johnson can not even put is tie straight 🙄🙄
