Johnson Pledges NHS Boost To Fend-Off Labour Attacks

Both former Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond and Antoinette Sandbach have refused to say what they’ll do. Johnson has got the big scalp: Steve Baker, chairman of the pro-Brexit European Research Group and a key figure in the so-called “Spartans,” who refused to back May’s Brexit deal, has recommended that colleagues should support Johnson’s deal. ERG Deputy Chairman Mark Francois said after the meeting that no one in the room had said they would vote against the agreement, but members leaving the committee room refused to comment to reporters. He spoke after the group’s chairman Steve Baker had recommended that members should back Johnson’s deal and urged them to oppose it. But former Conservative minister Oliver Letwin’s amendment to Johnson’s motion would postpone legal approval until all the necessary laws have passed Parliament. “This prime minister can’t be trusted and these benches will not be duped,” Corbyn said. Johnson took aim at former Tory minister Oliver Letwin, whose widely-supported amendment looks set to delay a vote on the deal until next week. “The delay in Brexit has created negativities, both in the global markets towards Britain and damaged consumer sentiment,” Chief Executive Officer Helen Connolly said in a statement.

Johnson needs formal Parliamentary approval for his deal by the end of Saturday to get out of a law that requires him to request a delay of Britain’s departure from the European Union. Boris Johnson won’t push his Brexit deal to a vote on Saturday if a rebel amendment that’s designed to postpone legal sign-off is passed, a U.K. Addressing Parliament, Boris Johnson tried to reach out for support, saying he wants to involve parliament in the future stages of Brexit. Boris Johnson drew ironic Labour jibes when he appealed for MPs to be less adversarial. Boris Johnson gave reassurance after reassurance to concerned former Tories. The opposition Labour Party confirmed its lawmakers will be ordered to back Oliver Letwin’s amendment, which would force Boris Johnson to send a letter to the EU requesting a Brexit extension on Saturday night. It looks likely the Letwin amendment will pass, as it has the support of opposition parties and several former Tories.

At that point, the uncontested votes of opposition MPs will mean the whole motion falls. He told Greg Clarke, who was business secretary under Theresa May, that workers’ rights will always be as good as or better than they are in the EU. The government “is taking us out at such a gallop that proper scrutiny can’t take place,” Grieve told the House of Commons. “We agreed that if we vote for the deal, we vote for the bill,” Francois told the House of Commons. The key to making the price of unoccupied house insurance a little more reasonable is to show to insurance companies that it isn’t that risky to provide coverage for it. The House of Commons is packed. This is definitely the most opinionated part of this article, and I totally understand if you don’t agree with what I’m about to say. But a couple of former Tories are refusing to say.

Labour will vote for the amendment “to stop Boris Johnson sneaking through a no-deal crash out or setting up a blackmail vote between his sell-out deal and no deal on Oct. 31,” the party said. The announcement is significant because some MPs have said they will back the Letwin amendment to stop the ERG from forcing a no-deal divorce from the EU on Oct. 31 by blocking the government’s Withdrawal Agreement Bill.

Shortly afterwards, independent MP Nick Boles made clear he doesn’t believe them. The vote is looking very close. Here’s how some of them stack up, looking first at the factors you have the most control over.

Corbyn also leveled a warning at Labour MPs who suggested overnight that they might back the deal after receiving assurances from Johnson over workers rights after Brexit. Bonmarche, a U.K. womenswear retailer employing 2,900 people, went into administration and said uncertainty over Brexit delivered the knockout blow. Before the last big Brexit vote, Baker made an emotional speech to the group about his frustration with the process. Tory MP Nigel Evans said that Baker had recommended at a meeting of the group on Saturday that they should back the plan. The Democratic Unionist Party’s Brexit spokesman Sammy Wilson also spoke to the European Research Group of hard-line Brexiteers at their meeting on Saturday morning (see 9 a.m.). However, on their way out of the meeting, veteran Brexiteers Bill Cash and John Redwood declined to comment on how they would vote, leaving it open that they might abstain. Johnson will still have a way to meet his pledge to deliver Brexit by Oct. 31 — by getting his deal passed in Parliament before that date.
