forces that aiden's airport alright truck today those are the latest headlines inside story is next. anger over the latest twist of brags that britain's prime minister suspends parliament as a deadline looms for the u.k. to leave the european union what's planned and there's a no deal bragg's it now inevitable this is inside story.
hello and welcome to the program. it's being described as a political coup british m.p.'s are crying foul after the prime minister suspended parliament just weeks before brags that it leaves little time to prevent the u.k. leaving the european union without a deal. and even members of boris johnson's own conservative party decry the decision as undemocratic opposition leader jeremy corbin accused johnson of trying to force a new deal brags that a legal challenge is under way and more than a 1000000 people have signed a petition to stop the suspension of the government denies he's trying to limit debate on brags that the prime minister is clear that he wants to use a new parliamentary session in order to ensure that the people's priorities are met but it's also the case that parliamentarians will have plenty of time when we come back next week to debate bracks it they have plenty of time before the european
council in october to debate british and they'll have plenty of time to vote on and to reflect their views on after that europe. in council which we hope to get a deal on to spend the last 3 years talking about bricks it prime minister boris johnson's decision comes at a critical time for the u.k. the british parliament will be out of action for 5 weeks while it's normal for a new government to take time out for a short period this will be the longest suspension says 1945 m.p.'s will return on october 14th that's just days before the european union summit where johnson is hoping to secure a new bragg's a deal and a mere 2 weeks before the deadline for the u.k.'s departure from the e.u. on october 30th 1st. let's bring in our guest joining us from london acer bennett the braggs of
commissioning editor of the telegraph newspaper from brussels peter clottey had of the brussels office at open europe a think tank also from london jonathan lis deputy director of british influence welcome all to the program normally when a nation faces an issue that could reshape its future like brigs it that's where you normally need the parliament on board but it's not the case in the u.k. why's that. well simply because the previous prime minister try to put the deal to parliament and it got thrown back rejected 3 times and so now with the clock ticking the new prime minister boris johnson faces a crucial choice either he has to try to get a deal that is good enough to win a majority but it's meant to be a majority of his side and maybe enough of the opponents the trouble is the opponents are not really coming through they want to stop him and say they show no
interest in backing a deal so then the alternative is much more controversial of going for a no deal bracks s. and this is why then the remainer opponents are determined to do all they can stop him and so this week the move to effectively reboot parliament by bringing this current session to an end and having m.p.'s come back in the middle of october means that m.p.'s now who want to stop bars have a choice they have to either basically come up with the killer blood in the next fortnight or it may well be too late in mid october because no matter what they do then he could just sit in downing street and sit down the clock as no deal drugs that happens by default peter how is this seen the e.u. is it a simple procedure or an extraordinary moment. this is still early days but there are initial reports indicating that the e.u. site is finally. getting the message that boris johnson is serious about
no deal and that he's actually very transparent in his strategy his fresh g. has been to prepare for no deal in order to increase the chances of a deal so the latest moves by the government in the u.k. mean that. strategies like an extension or or or ending the requests to to leave the e.u. are less and less likely so for the either side the choice is really going to be between no deal which is dreadful none of the sides are well prepared for that or to agree to renegotiate the compromise that syriza may already concluded with the e.u. so far the e.u.
and particularly iowans have been saying the same thing since november really that they refused to continue negotiating but i suspect that many people are now starting to dogged how wice that is jonathan. morris johnson spin doctors were in the media saying basically this is a simple procedure that people have had enough of this. part of the session which has been described as the longest says the english civil war of 1642 and that it's about time to call for the pro gay ssion is that something that could build trust among the people in the u.k. . no that doesn't excuse what's happening and we are currently 9 weeks from a crash out breck's it which words deliver food and medicine show it is by the government's own admission and the government is responding by trying to shut down
parliament for 5 weeks at that time so parliament is not able to put forward alternative proposals and crucially may not be able to stop no deal a tool which is in flagrant disregard of parliamentary sovereignty and also of the will of the british people because 2 thirds of parliament is opposed to no deal and 2 thirds the british people are opposed to no deal as well so there is no justification for any kind of prioritization of parliament which especially takes in a week longer than parliament was due to be in recess for conference season anyway the only conceivable explanation is that the gov is the government wants to seize power from the people's representatives and hand it to an unelected prime minister . when you look at the time frame now with this suspension i think it gives the opposition no more than 5 days to be able to get their act together and see what would be their next move whether to a no vote. no vote of confidence or call for early elections is
this timeframe going to be enough for the opposition to tackle the issue. well let's remember back in march opponents of a no deal bricks that managed to fast track a bill to order the prime minister through the may to delay breck's it in basically a day it was sailing through the legislative stages so smoothly that reason may was basically already putting the request in to delay and extend article 50 before the bill it even becomes law granted we have a different prime minister now who is determined if necessary to ignore any such request of n. peacemakers and as you're saying yes the ponens of a no deal have several days less to play with than if they want to try and stop him but let's keep this thing in proportion slightly because with purgation i think
some people have been conditioned by the chatter your heard that effectively some backstairs wanted to suspend and shut down poland throughout just for the next few weeks nonstop so the pollen could not do anything at all up till october 31st and so therefore the revelation now that the recess the whole the break in parliamentary sitting will be a week longer than planned has meant people are behaving as if it had been announced the parliament will be shut down norms stop a little talk of a 1st i make that distinction because we must remember that in the days they do have fewer they may be a number they can still do things but of course the key is numbers parliamentary rhetoric they have to have a majority in favor for it to work peter with the prorogue ation is this going to be enough for once johnson to negotiate an agreement with the you. well there's definitely hope so in now i think that even if you consider this to be quite
desperate and quite risky which is an opinion that is fair enough to holt's i think you have to understand why the u.k. political class is ultimately resorting to this it is because the european union has basically told the united kingdom that they can leave with a deal in an orderly friendly manner under one condition and that condition is that they make a choice and the choice is between either accepting customs checks within the u.k. stare tory or alternatively to outsource their trade policy to brussels until further notice now i think friend and forward mid that this is quite a quite an ambitious the man to make from the u.k. and therefore nobody's of course a price that ultimately the u.k. parliament has not agreed to doubts now there is a way out the so-called backstop which is the commitment of the united kingdom to
remain under the eaves customs regime to prevent customs differences between northern aren't and aren't. i think most british politicians agreed that this is fair enough and that this is acceptable for a certain period but not indefinitely not in the sense that the e.u. side would be able to unilaterally decide how long the u.k. remains under that backstop i do think that the obvious compromise still is a time limits to that backstop but for that we need aren't to move and so far in art and people don't seem to realise that if they risk a no deal this will cause potentially more economic damage to aren't done to the united kingdom and that it may also not only undermine the peace process because the e.u. would be insisting on a hard border in our hands but it would also perhaps damage relations between
ireland and its partners in the european union let's go to jennifer who seems to be willing to offer a different argument. well the 1st thing to say about ireland is that they have no osce to practice it and aren't has a very long history of being mistreated by britain in fact over 800 years culminating in the partition of violence and in the troubles which only ended 20 years ago so the memories that are hard are extremely rule in ireland and so naturally they want to see everything they can to ensure that there is an open and invisible border between northern ireland in ireland in perpetuity so you can't simply have a time limited backstop there says if you haven't got through tons of arrangements in place by safe ideas we don't know what's going to happen we'll just have a hard border anyway that's not how an insurance policy works.
