The attempt by Prime Minister Boris Johnson to drag the United Kingdom out of the European Union come October ending by seeking for a vote from the Parliament, hit a brick wall on Monday. This is so, because Speaker of the House Of Commons, John Bercow blocked his plans to seek for a vote to his Brexit agreement reached with the European Union.
John Bercow speaking on opposing the move argued that the deal had already been brought before the Commons and it would be “repetitive and disorderly” to debate it again.
The speaker said: “In summary, today’s motion is in substance the same as Saturday’s motion and the House has decided the matter.
“My ruling, therefore, is the motion will not be debated today as it would be repetitive and disorderly to do so.”
John Bercow adding further, said: “It is a necessary rule to ensure the sensible use of the House’s time and proper respect for the decisions that it takes.”
This is clearly not good for Boris Johnson, who has vowed to take the United Kingdom out of the European Union come October ending, with or without a deal. But the lawmakers and opposition parties are pushing for an extension, which the EU is willing to grant.
