Britain: Corbyn wants to push Johnson out of office and rescue Brexit

The British opposition leader wants to prevent any unregulated EU exit by any means. According to reports, he calls for a vote of no confidence.


British Labor Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, according to media reports, wants to prevent a Brexit-controlled Brexit vote with a vote of no confidence in Prime Minister Boris Johnson. The Labor leader called on Wednesday's parliamentarians to voice Johnson's mistrust. He himself could take over the government for a "limited time" duration to ask the other EU countries for a postponement of the set to 31 October Brexit.

He also wanted to start a new election, Corbyn wrote in a letter to the chiefs of opposition parties and rebels of the ruling conservatives. Labor wool is campaigning for the British to vote on the type of exit from the EU and to vote for remaining in the European Union. When he wants to file a motion of censure against Johnson, Corbyn left open.

Mixed reactions

Whether Corbyndamit will succeed is more than questionable. Although many MPs want to prevent a no-deal Brexit. But Corbyn's plan met with mixed reactions. The new leader of the Liberal Democrat, Jo Swinson, described the project as "nonsense" according to reports. Although the Greens could imagine a vote of no confidence, but want a new referendum even before new elections.

One government spokesperson said: "There is a clear choice: Jeremy Corbyn, who will override the referendum and ruin the economy, or Boris Johnson, who will respect the referendum, and more money for the NHS and more police on our streets will make. "

Johnson plans to lead Britain out of the European Union on 31st October under all circumstances. He insists on changes to the final exit agreement with the EU, but if necessary, will go without an agreement. The Parliament had failed the exit agreement under Jonas predecessor Theresa May three times, but also voted against a Brexit without a contract. In the end, Johnson had not ruled out the idea of ​​imposing a compulsory break on Parliament and rendering it unable to act.

Johnson wants to cancel the agreed backstop in the agreement, which the EU rejects. The purpose of this guarantee clause is to prevent border controls from being reintroduced between Northern Ireland and EU Member Ireland. This could rekindle the old conflict between Catholic advocates of an Ilandian union and Protestant loyalists.

The Backstops contend that Britain will remain part of a customs union with the EU until the problem is solved otherwise. In addition, Northern Ireland is supposed to be regulated partly by the European single market. Johnson sees the clause as an "instrument of incarceration" in the United Kingdom customs union and internal market.
