BREXIT DEAL TEXT EU withdrawal agreement bill text published


The UK government published the full text of its European Union Withdrawal Agreement bill on Monday, as Prime Minister Boris Johnson faces potentially perilous ratification of the Brexit separation deal in parliament after the speaker refused to allow a vote on it on Monday.

With just 10 days left until the United Kingdom is due to leave the European Union on Oct. 31, the split is again in disarray as Britain’s politicians argue over whether to leave with a deal, exit without a deal or hold another referendum.

The government is trying to get the legislation needed for Britain to leave the bloc in the shortest time possible, drawing cries from opposition lawmakers that Johnson was trying to bully and rush lawmakers into passing the bill.

Earlier, House of Commons speaker John Bercow said an indicative vote should not be allowed on Monday as the same issue had been discussed on Saturday when opponents turned Johnson’s big BREXIT day into something of a humiliation.
