Brexit looks murkier while a Prime Minister wants to take over the nations unwritten Constitution

August 30, 2019

The big topic in the United Kingdom and for its people wherever they may be as much it seems and perhaps more so, that in Montserrat, (we won’t speak for the rest of the Overseas Territories (OTs)) there is very little and unless out of our earshot, nothing, in fact, is being said much more discussed by the government (the elected members), and at this time with general election in the air, the named candidates and others.

It is however very important, to the point that we feel the OTs should let their voices be heard in the ears of FCO and for their people, so that deliberations should always linger somewhere in the halls of debates and decisions.

We hope to as we have wanted to keep those who otherwise and not so informed as to what has been happening to the Brexit Saga which we continue to say was corrupt before the referendum vote and since what has been going on is the typical coverups and hypocrisies.

Following the 2016 referendum on Britain’s EU membership, during which 52 percent of voters opted in favour of leaving the 28-member bloc, Brexit has dominated public life and political discourse in the UK.

There is more to tell, but here we are with a new Prime Minister Boris Johnson, the man who had driven the Brexit vote with what many now know were false maneuverings and non-existent facts.

Prime Minister David Cameron resigned immediately and all had thought that the now Prime Minister would step up to carry forward his mess, but he disappeared to resurface, now trying to force his continued maneuverings on parliament. But let’s see, how that will go. It seems there are a few converts who believe that only the best must go forward or revert from what was never a binding referendum. Not heard of, but there are those who repeatedly, getting louder, that the referendum was merely advisory and not binding. So much for those who try to mislead on thoughts of ‘democracy.’

So ‘no deal’ is leaning against a weakened door.

Back in December there had begun a column in several media organisations: Brexit timeline: What’s expected to happen next?

Possible end of transition period Proposed end date for the transition period. This may be extended, however, according to the draft withdrawal agreement. If no trade deal is reached by the end of this period, the so-called backstop.

It is history, the back and forth, that took place leading up to Teresa May being forced out and then, Boris Johnson. And here we are.

The Queen’s approval of prorogation has left a very tight timeline for MPs to avert a no-deal Brexit in Parliament.

Politicians are outraged at Boris Johnson’s decision to suspend Parliament from mid-September until the Queen’s Speech at the State Opening of Parliament in mid-October. Many see it as an attempt by the Prime Minister to thwart plans to avert a no-deal Brexit. He has said Britain will leave the EU, regardless of whether or not a deal has been secured, on 31 October – just over two weeks after the suspension will end.

And so it is expected – September 3, MPs will return to the House of Commons for the first session after summer recess.

Brexit is likely to be high on the agenda. Leaders of the opposition parties, spearheaded by Labour’s Jeremy Corbyn, have agreed to meet to work on a new law to prevent a no-deal Brexit.

Hundreds of MPs called on Mr. Johnson to bring back Parliament earlier than 3 September but he has so far ignored their requests.

We wait for next week, but there is much to catch on and much may happen then. We wait.
