Briton’s Front Runner for PM, Boris Johnson Not Ruling Out Parliament Suspension to Force No-Deal Brexit

Avatar of CTN News



LONDON – Boris Johnson, the front-runner in the race to succeed British Prime Minister Theresa May, has told pro-Brexit lawmakers he would leave open the possibility of suspending parliament to force through a no-deal exit from the European Union, The Times reported on Thursday.

At a private meeting last week, Johnson assured the European Research Group, a group of lawmakers who support a hard Brexit, that he would not explicitly rule out such a move, the newspaper said, citing an unnamed “senior Brexiteer.”

Boris Johnson said he doesn’t want a no-deal Brexit but the country must prepare for one as a negotiating tactic.

Dialing down his earlier rhetoric, the favorite to replace Theresa May said he wants a “sensible, orderly” divorce, but he vowed to leave the bloc on Oct. 31. Meanwhile an opposition bid to block a no-deal exit failed.
