Brexit update: Johnson wins vote on his deal, requests MPs to move on

Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal cleared its first hurdle in Parliament on Friday, placing the UK on course to leave the European Union next month.

MPs voted by 358 to 234 for it to proceed to its next stage

Opening the Commons debate, the prime minister declared his legislation (deal) offers ‘no possibility’ of any further delay, with the transition period due to end on 31st December 2020.

Brexit – Take 2

That sets the clock ticking again on UK – EU trade talks, which are likely to dominate British politics throughout 2020.

And this time the government has the balance of power with a clear mandate from UK voters to ‘get things done!’ No more dither or delay as Boris likes to say.

  • Johnson says Brexit Bill offers ‘no possibility’ to extend transition period past 31st December 2020
  • MP’s vote by 358 to 234 to pass the second reading of the Withdrawal Agreement Bill
  • Brexit bill passage through Parliament expected to be completed in January 2020
  • Parliament enters Christmas recess at end of business on Friday 20th December 2020
  • It’s taken three and a half years to get to this point since the referendum in 2016


Looks like the paralysis in UK parliament is finally over!
