UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s decision to suspend parliament has taken the UK a step closer to crashing out of the European Union on October 31st without a deal, plunging the country into further chaos, with both sides of the Brexit argument reignited, opinions divided, but with many committed to trying to stop a no deal Brexit.

UK Labour Party Leader Jeremy Corbyn also reiterated his commitment to stopping what many see as Boris Johnson’s coup d’etat, of the UK parliament.

As well as eliciting condemnation across the board at home, the leader of the European parliament also weighed into the debate by tweeting criticism of Boris Johnson’s decision to suspend parliament, as Brussels continued to react to the UK parliament’s deadlock.

In addition, in the UK, Boris Johnson’s suspension of parliament has drawn sharp criticism from MPS and many within his own party and the public, holding him responsible for the current political upheaval. 

While no one can be certain of what will happen on the Brexit deadline, one thing which is certain is Boris Johnson’s commitment to driving through a no deal Brexit at any cost, despite all the repeated warnings of dire economic consequences.

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s plan to shut down parliament is set to be legally challenged while his decision has sparked protests up and down the country as the Brexit deadline of October the 31st draws ever nearer.
