More than 100 British parliamentarians are calling in a letter on Sunday Prime Minister Boris Johnson to immediately summon Parliament, currently on vacation, to debate Brexit again.
While Parliament's summer recess normally ends on 3 September, these parliamentarians want Boris Johnson to call him back to sit permanently until 31 October, when the UK must leave the EU. .
"Parliament must be summoned immediately"
"Our country is on the edge of an economic crisis as we move towards a Brexit without agreement," they write. "We are in front of a national emergency, and Parliament must be summoned immediately".
Boris Johnson is determined that the UK will effectively leave the EU on October 31, whether or not he has successfully renegotiated the agreement reached between former Prime Minister Theresa May and Brussels.
Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the Labor Party, the main opposition party, wants a vote of no confidence against conservative Boris Johnson following the return of parliament. He hopes, if he manages to bring down Mr. Johnson, become acting head of government, then seek a new postponement of the date of the departure of the EU to avoid a Brexit without agreement, and then call early elections .
48% of Britons would prefer the UK to leave the EU without agreement
"What we need is a government that is ready to negotiate with the European Union so that we do not have a disastrous exit on October 31, and the government headed by Mr. Johnson" does not want clearly not doing that, "Corbyn said Saturday.
However, a YouGov poll shows that the British are not overwhelmingly supportive of Jeremy Corbyn's plans. According to this opinion poll conducted on Thursday and Friday on a representative sample of 1,968 Britons, 48% would prefer that the UK leave the EU without agreement rather than see Corbyn become Prime Minister.
On the contrary, 35% would prefer that Jeremy Corbyn become head of government and organize a new referendum on the UK's membership of the EU. 17% do not speak.
