British Parliament Speaker blocks vote on Brexit agreement

British Speaker John Birkow did not allow parliamentarians to vote again today for an agreement on Brexit, which significantly increased the chances of London’s “tough” exit from the EU. It is reported by the BBC.

“The speaker of the British parliament, John Birkow, did not allow parliamentarians to vote again today for the agreement with respect to Brexit, which significantly increased the chances of Britain’s hard exit from the EU,” the statement said.

Explaining his decision, Birkou said that the agreement cannot be voted on again, since this is the same proposal that was submitted for consideration on Saturday.

The argument that the situation has changed in connection with letters about the postponement of Brexit, which the British Prime Minister Boris Johnson sent to Brussels over the weekend, the speaker called unconvincing.

As you know, the vote for the agreement was supposed to take place on October 19, but instead of the agreement, the deputies voted for the amendment that the agreement with the EU would not be approved until the House of Commons adopted all the laws necessary for leaving the EU.

Great Britain, according to plans, should leave the EU on October 31. Today it is not known whether the EU and Great Britain will agree to a new deferral of Brexit.
