Boris Johnson forbereder en veritabel blitzkrig for å få Storbritannia ut av EU innen 31. oktober. Han drar til EU-toppmøtet 17. og 18. oktober med en ny plan. Hvis EU går med på betingelsene, vil Parlamentet blir satt under hardt press for å få vedtatt loven innen fristen. Om nødvendig med møter natt og dag.

Boris Johnson will try to ram a new Brexit deal through parliament in just 10 days – as the clock runs down towards his ‘do or die’ deadline of October 31, it has emerged.

It is reported that the Prime Minister has made detailed plans for a deal to take to the EU at the Brussels summit on October 17-18, before bringing it back to Parliament to signed in to law.

But with just 13 days left by that point, MPs could be forced to attend late-night sittings that would continue through the weekend in order to negotiate an orderly exit.

Opposisjonen har regnet med at Boris styrer mot en hard Brexit. Men nå er det tegn på at EU kan gå med på en avtale.

EU diplomats said that discussions between the European Commission and UK negotiators had been more productive recently, according to the Financial Times.

Kan det tenkes at EU er så lei britene at de er villig til å gå med på en avtale, bare for å få en slutt på seigpiningen? Har EU konkludert med at bestrebelsene på å få Storbritannia til å vedta en ny folkeavstemning som reverserer Brexit, ikke vil føre frem?

Nikki da Costa, the prime minister’s head of legislative affairs, has told colleagues she is confident that if a deal emerges from the next European Council, it could be passed into law before October 31.

‘Nikki has told us she has a plan to pass a Brexit deal in 10 days flat,’ one senior government official told the Financial Times.

 

Boris Johnson will ram through new Brexit deal ‘in just 10 days’ with MPs sitting through the night and at weekends to ensure an orderly exit by October 31, says No10
