but. he was defiant but now boris johnson looks caught in the tight corner the u.k. leader was told he can't force brags that without a deal he's got the parliament suspended but his bid for a snap election is rejected so what are his options now this is inside story. hello and welcome to the program i'm homage enjoy him only a few days ago he said he would rather die in a ditch than ask the e.u. for an extension to briggs in negotiations but it seems boris johnson may have to admit defeat and find another way to deal with his deeply divided government his attempt to call an early election has been thrown out and parliament suspended for the next 5 weeks he needed more than 430 votes to get a snap election he only got 293 that's left him in
8:14 pm
a tight corner if he wants the u.k. to leave the block on october 31st so where does this leave it could there be a 2nd referendum and what will opposition parties do next we have lots to get into with our guests but 1st ornstein reports on a dramatic night in british politics. mr speaker the lord's will also rise by how much is this mission to declare to declare how well it said to ask how 55 this is and so also declared the prior great holiday and. desired the presence of this honorable have really no. choice what the outside world makes of the british parliament shutting down for 5 weeks when the u.k. is going through the biggest political crisis since world war 2 is anyone's guess it's most certainly less than popular among the opposition and peace on the speaker of the house of commons this is not however

a normal part of geisha it is not difficult it is not standard it's one of the longest for decades and it represents not just in the minds of many colleagues but huge numbers of people outside and active executives. as conservatives file doubts they were heckles by opposition m.p.'s who refused to leave they tried to stop the speak up from leaving and then signed protest songs in the chamber. to demonstrate only too clearly the collapse of traditional politics here government ministers of offered no explanation of the deal they are seeking if there is such a deal less aching let alone any work type proposals presented to parliament the scrutiny no wonder they are so keen to baroque so early to avoid any scrutiny
8:16 pm
of not doing the eyes of the right $293.00. the left 46 johnson had lost his 6 votes in 6 days even fewer and these casting their ballots for a sober election but had done when. tried it the 1st time and so while the opposition accused him of cowardice for suspending parliament he accused them of the same thing they're right on the bill james remains cronies together with those other opposition parties have been trying to disguise their proposed stress cowardice by coming up with ever more wagers excuses for joining you know an election until the end of october or perhaps november when hell freezes over. in media the delay and procrastination that has become the hallmarks of the opposition before parliament was put into they say induced coma the opposition was able to force boris johnson in civil corner he is now going to have to seek some sort of
8:17 pm
compromise with the european union if the u.k. is to leave the block by the end of october as he insists must happen but that in turn will infuriate the most pro breck's it right wing of the party and will inevitably cost them seats whenever the national election happens with his cabinet holding its regular meeting these calculations will all be in play rumors abound of the potential for more resignations from the ruling party as johnson's many critics say his grip over bricks it becomes ever weaker lawrence lee al-jazeera london. all right let's bring in our panel joining me from london bobby freedman political commentator on u.k. politics and the author of berkow mr speaker rowdy living in the tory party from birmingham on skype alex to reuters director of the center for briggs and studies at birmingham city university and also from london sania pranav journalist and
8:18 pm
author of just boris a tale of blonde ambition welcome you all to the program sonia let me start with you boris johnson has lost 6 important votes in 6 days just how damaged is he right now. isn't it thing any other time insead has ever gone through a loss he has i mean he does that quite often not get a man defeated a man who's had the rug pulled out from under his feet and interestingly actually last night he gave a form cite the best in the comments and he has done to date but i think he doesn't like a man who knows he's in a corner now we just have to guess or possibly trying guess how he gets out of this corner will he resign if some people say he might will he call a 2nd referendum on bret's it as other people say that he might it's a perfect storm so many avenues are now going to have to do something radical to his out of this mess otherwise he is going to be a very short lived 5 in 7 days bobbie boris johnson tried to outsmart parliament it
8:19 pm
seems now that he's the one who's been outmaneuvered by parliament wouldn't you say . well certainly things have not gone quite as boris would have climbed so far but there is an orphan a long way to go in this very sort of go to escape route really the 1st is to go and get a deal from the e.u.'s still think that that is possible and what he has successfully done i think is change the mood music in palma so that if he does bring some kind of deal back to the house of commons he's much more likely to get it voted 3 something that reason may his predecessor the prime minister was unable to do the house of commons has passed legislation requiring boris not until october 19th but requiring him to send a letter to the e.u. also going for an extension to the brics it dates something he said he'd rather die in a ditch than day but i do think that he's got 5 weeks now in palm and he isn't sitting 5 weeks in which he can twist in all 4 of alms and and try and maneuver himself
8:20 pm
into into a better position saving you're certainly right not been an easy few days for boris johnson but i still think he does live to fight another day at least for now alex from your perspective did boris johnson really believed that suspending parliament would or could be a winning strategy considering how divided politics are right now in britain where you get a sense it's difficult to say and i don't buy into understand exactly what course thinks i'm happy god but looking at the nature of his instrument it coming that's a expect it to be religiously dr bio soothing aides you know for parliament to consider this in parliament to effect quantity grades so a basement getting plenty for the $21.00 or $22.00 rebels including and a rod that is just a match them they just need you to put country before. they're not i don't think boris quite anticipated. an outbreak of option just this on
8:21 pm
a test i would say. bobbie you mentioned before that boris johnson had stated publicly that he would rather be dead in a ditch than to ax ask for another extension on bridget from the e.u. but of course there is this new law that compels him now to ask for an extension if he does not do that what happens. well he's got 2 choices really he can either resign or he will have to offer that extension if he if he were to refuse to in the face the law what would happen is that someone would go to court get a court order requiring him to send that letter some people saying that bristol's will go to prison i think frankly that's a bit funny it's a full probably wishful thinking on the part of some people who'd like to see him go to prison and that's because what would happen would be the court could itself sign a letter or nominate someone apart from doris to sign the letter and there's another
8:22 pm
stage that would have to be gone through before boris could even be threatened with being sent to prison so that isn't a likely outcome but the one thing you have to factor in is that the curiosity of this law is that bars doesn't have to send that request now ecomog wait until october the 19th and so he can within that period of time try to make it deeply unattractive for the e.u. to grant that extension or by have to grant it for quite so long because he could say to the you for example that britain won't nominate a commissioner that it will veto the various laws that the other e.u. countries want to put forward and then the e.u. is then left in a position where it's thinking do we want to allow britain to remain in the e.u. and there are some countries particularly fronts which are rather nervous about giving us a long extension others such as germany more in favor of giving that extension so that is the crucial period of time for boris yeltsin over the next 5 weeks but you are right said that if he gets to october the 19th and he hasn't got
8:23 pm
a deal that he could put through parliament and the e.u. has indicated that it will offer that extension either he does have to resign or ultimately he or someone nominated by the court will end up having to send that sonia what do you think about this point i mean i heard you mention earlier that there is. people there are people asking questions about would boris johnson potentially go to prison if he if he does not ask for this extension you just heard now bobbie talk about the fact that there is speculation on this point as well is there a scenario that exists currently by which boris johnson could perhaps go to court could perhaps face prison time if he actually breaks the law as prime minister well listen we're in totally uncharted waters here in britain has never had politics as tumultuous as this for hundreds of years i think it's really difficult impossible
8:24 pm
even to say how things are going to pan out technically yes he could go to prison if he was seized to pay a causal that he would then be in contempt of court which is something of a crime in this country that can carry a prison sentence so it is possible that that said i think it is actually unlikely however he is such a long way from finding a deal that the issues that face reason may his predecessor face him still now the only deal that has been agreed by all sides is the was draw agreement the problem is that the british parliament doesn't like it but the you won't change it so we just go round and round and round and round in circles and something has got to break this now i mean if some can i don't believe he can really come up with a different deal then maybe he can find a different way out of this i mean there are many people who signed up to support him when he was going to the leadership of the conservative party believing that he might potentially call
8:25 pm
a 2nd referendum now i know that looks unlikely at the moment but we had all of the let when a very senior treasury now a tory rebel only this morning saying that he now backed one and that many others do too could this potentially be a way out it would be an extraordinary one but it's a possible one alex i saw you nodding so it looked like you wanted to jump in i'm going to let you have the.
