Brexit to be delayed until after 31st October if no-deal is still on the table
MPs attempting to avoid a no-deal Brexit from occurring next month were successful by 328 to 301 votes in their attempts to bring a bill seeking a delay to the UK’s exit date.
This development provides them with the opportunity to instruct Boris Johnson PM to pursue a 3-month delay to the UK’s exit date. This new date changing from 31st October 2019 to 31st January 2020, unless MPs vote in favour of a no-deal Brexit or approve a new deal by 19th October 2019.
In response, Boris Johnson PM has stated he will push for an early General Election to take place next month (15th October). However, the Labour party have challenged this. They will not support a General Election until the bill blocking of a no-deal Brexit has been passed.
