There is a division within the Conservative Party about the government’s Brexit policy. He has a wafer-thin majority in parliament and fears that parliamentarians from his own ranks will soon vote with the opposition, who wants to prevent the United Kingdom from leaving the European Union without a deal on 31 October.
The party source says there is still a chance of a deal with the EU. It should then be closed during an EU summit on 17 October. According to the government, the British negotiating position can be sabotaged by rebellious Conservatives.
The Lower House will return from summer break tomorrow. Then according to the source, all parliamentarians must make a “simple choice”.
“Agree with the government and keep the chance of a deal alive or vote with Corbyn and destroy any chance of a deal.” Jeremy Corbyn is the leader of Labor, the largest opposition party.
Prime Minister Johnson has reportedly called off a meeting with rebellious party members. It should have taken place on Monday. That only increases the mistrust of the rebels, a source around their camp told Sky News.
“These parliamentarians want evidence that a genuine attempt is being made to close a deal,” the initiate said. “The fact that the prime minister is not even prepared to meet them suggests that that is not the case.”
