● Protesters against Brexit are marching on the streets of London.
LONDON – British lawmakers voted Saturday to deny support for Prime Minister Boris Johnson's new Brexit deal, shaking his hopes of finalizing Brexit on an extraordinary "Super Saturday" but not delivering a fatal blow to the withdrawal agreement, to Brussels. Conservative Party successor Oliver Letwin's successful amendment is designed to fight Johnson ̵
1; so he can't force Britain to leave the European Union until lawmakers
describe Johnson's vile attempt to refute the will people and keeping the Brexit trajectory.
The vote was close: 322 in favor and 306 against.
It was an anti-climactic conclusion until the day lawmakers met on Saturday for the first time in 37 years since Britain has been fighting in the Falkland Islands.
Johnson responds to the parliamentary beating with a definite finger-punch. The PM insists, "I am not concerned or dissatisfied with this particular outcome." He promised that he would "not negotiate" a delay with E.U. – which doesn't mean he won't ask for one.
Johnson warned the House of Commons that "further delays will be bad for this country, bad for the European Union and bad for democracy."
But according to legislation passed last month, if the deal was not approved until 11pm local time on October 19, Johnson is formally required to request a quarterly extension after the October 31 deadline for Brexit, potentially requiring any release in early 2020.
How – or when or if “Johnson wants an adjournment is now an unanswered question.
Opposition Labor Party leader Jeremy Corbin said he hoped Johnson would not believe "he was above the law" and warned the prime minister would be in court if he did not send a letter requesting an extension.
Joe Swinson, leader of the Liberal Democrats opposed to Brexit, said: "The most urgent thing right now is the prime minister to obey the law."
European leaders are sick and tired of Brexit talking, but almost certainly agreeing to extension. Even before that, most E.U. politicians believe it would be impossible to find all parts of the division by the end of October. And although they cannot offer advance delay – the request must come from the British leader – such a move would be a push for an unlocked door.
European leaders are likely to move swiftly to offer to press the Brexit pause button, though they have not yet decided whether they will have to meet in person to do so.
In his speech on Saturday, Johnson emphasized that the Brexit debate – which he started as the leader of the 2016 referendum campaign – had taken a toll.
"Friendships are strained, families are separated and the attention of this house is consumed by one issue that sometimes feels incapable of resolving," he said.
The prime minister called his deal "a new and better way forward" for Britain and Europe.
The British leader will need to win 320 votes in parliament to pass his Brexit deal.
Stressing that the country remains deeply divided into Brexit, thousands of protesters have poured into London from across the county to demand a second referendum.
Some lawmakers in support of Brexit have reported that they require escorts from police in order to get home.
"Why do so-called People's Vote protesters think it is good to abuse, intimidate and scream in the face of someone they disagree with," tweeted Cabinet member Andrea Lead . "So scary and so grateful to the police."
However, the demonstrations were largely peaceful.
Saira Ramadan, a 36-year-old lawyer, stated that "this is our last real opportunity to hear our voices as publicly and in large numbers as possible. "
Asked about the claim that people are exhausted by Brexit, she said," It would be disrespectful to assume that there is no feeling of Brexit fatigue … but that does not mean that this should be the reason for those from us who feel strong enough to lie down and give it up because we want it done. "
For more than a year, polls show that if there is a nationwide" Make Over Voice "nation, Britons with a small limit will choose to remain in the EU
The YouGov poll reported that 30 percent of Britons support the Johnson deal, 17 percent want to go out of a transition management deal and 38 percent want to stay in the EU, with the remaining 15 percent uncertain.
Johnson rejected calls for a second referendum and continued to press lawmakers to remove Britain by the end of October, as he repeatedly promised, "made or died".
On the floor of the chamber, Johnson said that Britain has long had a divided heart over Europe. He is skeptical, dubious and half-hearted about Europe's major projects, for further integration, for more federalism on the continent, for a pan-European defense pact, for a single economic policy.
"We are skeptical of European integration," he said. "19659002] Corbin said MPs should reject the Johnson deal.
" I also fully understand the disappointment and fatigue across the country and in this House. " Corbin said, "But we just can't vote for a deal that is even worse than one that Parliament has voted three times to reject."
One challenge for the prime minister: there is limited time to look at the Brexit deal , which Johnson reached the EU he might like.
Dor and some friendly lawmakers who support Brexit complain that they want to read Johnson's own economic analysis of the price of the deal before voting for it.
"His strategy is the same as Teresa May's strategy," said Simon Usherwood, a professor of politics at the University of Surrey. "Present a deal and then bounce, bounce, make it through. Before you know it, you've agreed to something and don't worry about the details. "
May presents her withdrawal agreement to Parliament three times – and has been rejected three times.
On Saturday, now a backbencher, May rose to speak in the hall and feel a sense of deja vu. However, she offered full support. If Parliament did not support the deal, May said, "she is to blame for the most horrific fraudster of the British people."
Her voice rose with passion, May said, "If you don't want to make a deal, you have to business is calling for security. People want security in their lives. "
Johnson – k who ran the campaign under the banner of "Take Brexit Done" – there may be another factor working in his favor: "Brexhaservation." As a sign of time, Sky News on Friday launched its own non-Brexit news channel, hoping that there is a market for people who want a break from Brexit but not the news.
Johnson's new Brexit deal offers a more distant relationship with the EU than the agreement reached by his predecessor. However, his plan will force Northern Ireland to remain largely aligned with the EU, though it will leave the bloc with the rest of the United Kingdom
The Democratic Party of Northern Ireland said the deal was not in the "long-term interests of the province" ". "Its 10 lawmakers are expected to vote against the deal on Saturday.
" It was once said that no British prime minister could agree to such terms, "DUP MP Nigel Dodds told parliament." Now he will Does this respect and reconsider the fact that we must leave as a nation together? "
John Major and Tony Blair says in videos published for the People's Votes campaign that Johnson's deal risks derailing peace in Northern Ireland The two former prime ministers who supported "remain "In an EU referendum, played important roles in the Good Friday Agreement – the agreement that helped bring peace to Northern Ireland after decades of sectarian violence.
" Shame and disgust frankly treat Northern Ireland as a certain inconvenience
There have been many wheels, straightening and twisting of the hands over the last 48 hours, and it is difficult to know what methods of persuasion, if any, are being used in the hope of gaining support. There has been speculation that Johnson may offer the 21 MPs he expelled from his party last month, back if they voted to support his deal.
He also offered new promises Friday night to protect workers' rights. attempt to court more Labor lawmakers, especially those who are either Brexiteers or representing Brexit constituencies.
Corbour of Labor calls these promises 'empty promises'.
This deal, according to Corbin, "will absolutely inevitably lead to a trade deal with Trump, forcing the United Kingdom to deviate from the highest standards and re-expose its families to chlorinated chicken and hormone treated with beef . "
In the opinion of the Guardian newspaper, Melanie He, a Labor lawmaker from Grimsby, a pro-Brexit city populated by" out-of-work "workers, asks his colleagues" to use this unique opportunity to help us continue. "
"The risk of letting that last shot of a deal slip through our fingers is too great," she writes, in a piece written by a Conservative MP.
Johnson also hopes to pull aside the 28 claims his party's breakers, who were previously resistant to the Brexit deal, said the group Saturday morning that it was advising its members to vote for the Johnson Agreement.
