Boris Johnson tells parliament: You can tie my hands, but I will not delay Brexit
Published in Ahram Online on 10 - 09 - 2019

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Tuesday he would not request an extension to Brexit, hours after a law came into force demanding that he delay Britain's departure from the European Union until 2020 unless he can strike a divorce deal.
For the second time in a week, lawmakers then rejected Johnson's request to try to break the deadlock through an early national election.
With the future of Brexit mired in uncertainty, parliament was suspended until Oct. 14, sparking tense scenes in the House of Commons where opposition lawmakers held signs reading “silenced” and yelled “shame on you” at Johnson's ruling Conservatives.
Johnson appeared to have lost control of Britain's withdrawal from the European Union with the approval of the law, which obliges him to seek a delay unless he can strike a new deal at an EU summit next month.
