Boris Johnson and top government officials insist the plan to leave the European Union will be completed by October 31, but the defeat of the British Prime Minister in Parliament on Saturday further complicates matters.

MEPs are proposing a solution to the agreement with the Europeans, considering the no deal Brexit a catastrophic scenario. MEPs have approved an amendment by former Conservative MP Oliver Letuin, which stipulates that, even if Parliament approves the new agreement, the prime minister will have to ask for an extension of Brexit until legislation is passed to leave both houses. Parliament.

Boris Johnson, for his part, sent an unsigned letter to Donald Tusk, asking for another postponement of Brexit, claiming that he was sending it on behalf of Parliament. In addition, however, he sent a second to the President of the European Council, stating that a new postponement is wrong.

"He behaves a bit like a spoiled kid. Parliament has made a decision and it must be respected. "And sending a new letter that contradicts the first one shows that there is no value in the decisions of the Parliament and the courts", stressed the shadow Minister of Finance, John McDonnell.

Critical week

The week that begins in London and Brussels is particularly crucial, as it is expected to clarify the landscape as to what will be born in Brexit, with many scenarios open.

In the first phase, however, the Johnson government wants to proceed to a new vote in Parliament on the agreement with the EU on Brexit, but it remains unknown whether the Speaker will allow this.

John Berkow is expected to decide whether to allow the government to propose a vote on Prime Minister Boris Johnson's agreement with Brussels.

"Parliament can not change the mind of the prime minister, Parliament can not change the decision or policy of the government. "The prime minister is clear, and so are European leaders. They want this to end," said Lancaster's chancellor Michael Gove.

Johnson claims that this time he has the required votes, but on Sunday night there was a Labor movement to form a front with "rebel" conservatives and DUP members, with the Guardian pointing out that the alliance could either oblige the government to a softer Brexit or a vote on whether to leave the EU.

New extension?

As Johnson's request for a new adjournment is being considered in Brussels, British newspapers say an extension will be granted unless the House of Commons approves the deal.

According to the "Sunday Times", the European Union will extend Brexit until February, if Boris Johnson fails to secure the approval of the House of Commons for the agreement he has proposed within the next week.

The postponement will be flexible, which means that the United Kingdom may leave earlier - on 1 or 15 November, December or January - if the agreement is ratified in the meantime, the newspaper writes, citing diplomatic sources.

However, it does not appear that a decision will be made until the governments of the EU member states assess how likely it is that the Exit Agreement will pass through Parliament by Tuesday.

"It was a very short and normal meeting of the 27 European ambassadors on the next steps of ratification of the agreement. "President Tusk will discuss it with them in the coming days," said Michel Barnier, the European Union's chief negotiator for Brexit.

European diplomats and officials say that, depending on developments in London, Brexit could be extended from one month (until the end of November) to six months or even longer.
