Date set for major court showdown over no-deal Brexit

Britain will be the 'big losers' in a no deal Brexit, warns European Commission President

Britain will be the 'big losers' in a no deal Brexit, warns European Commission President

It should be noted that proroguing the parliamentary session would merely stop MPs from preventing the October 31st Brexit already provided for by parliamentary legislation - the European Union (Withdrawal) Act - and would not involve a despotic seizure of power in which Government would be able to rule by decree.

Mr Johnson yesterday reiterated his determination to leave the European Union on October 31 regardless of whether a compromise can be reached. Some believe that this is precisely where the United Kingdom is heading, with Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn accusing Johnson of plotting an "unprecedented, unconstitutional and anti-democratic abuse of power" by mulling snap elections "days after" the Brexit deadline.

Many investors say a no-deal Brexit would send shock waves through the world economy, tip Britain into a recession, roil financial markets and weaken London's position as an worldwide financial centre. "They discussed global economic issues and trade, and the prime minister updated the president on Brexit", Downing Street said.

"But we're also putting in place a lot of preparations to make sure that, should it come to that, we will have done all we can to mitigate against any difficulties".

"I made a decision to back a candidate in the leadership race, which initially was Jeremy Hunt who was very clear that we needed to have no deal as part of the armoury in a negotiation".

"The prime minister's undemocratic proposal to hold Westminster in contempt simply can't go unchallenged".

Walsh argues, "This raises the startling prospect that, unless an extension to Article 50 is sought and secured, a no-deal Brexit could take place in the middle of an election campaign".

A Government source said Downing Street anticipated that Monday September 9 - when MPs are likely to discuss the report in the Commons - could be the first major legislative showdown over a no-deal Brexit.

The Brighton Pavilion MP proposed forming a cabinet of senior cross-party female MPs if Parliament passes a motion of no confidence in Boris Johnson's Government to call for a referendum on whether to leave the EU.

Ms Abbott, asked if Labour is planning to move a vote of no confidence against Mr Johnson's Government in the first week of Parliament's return, said: "It's above my pay grade to say when we'll move the vote of no confidence".

"She knows Brexit will kill our economy and stopping it would be best for Britain".
