All eyes on Brussels as EU leaders consider Brexit delay

Boris Johnson has warned MPs he will abandon his Brexit bill if they do not approve the timetable proposed for its debate. EU leaders have welcomed the fact that on Tuesday – for the first time ever – a Brexit deal did get the nod from the UK parliament but diplomats point out that the reason they are all especially fatigued and frustrated by the one step forward, at least two brexit steps back Brexit political dance in the UK, is because they fully appreciate this is not even nearly the end of the road. In this case, as soon as parliament ratifies the new Brexit deal. But don’t expect the EU to deliver its decision in a hurry. EU leaders are openly fed-up with having to interrupt busy schedules to rush to Brussels for more emergency Brexit summits.

But Mr Johnson and his colleagues don’t want the date postponed as far ahead as the end of January. And if EU leaders offer this, the PM will call for a general election. He is legally obliged to do so and has previously stated that the government would comply with the law.

  • Responding in the Commons, Johnson said he would “pause this legislation” and await information from the EU on a possible delay.
  • Forced to do so under UK law (even though he made his personal opposition obvious) the prime minister submitted a letter of request at the weekend.

The facts of the matter are this is yet another humiliating defeat for the prime minister this evening who has sought to railroad through this house legislation that requires proper scrutiny. The European council president, Donald Tusk, has said he will recommend the EU accept the UK’s request for a Brexit extension.
