Prime Minister’s plans to suspend Parliament weeks before Brexit date challenged by Demonstrators across Uk calling it
More than 80 protests across the UK on Saturday were organized by an anti-Brexit campaign group where thousands of people protested against Boris Johnson’s decision to suspend Parliament weeks before the deadline for the UK to leave the European Union.
Saturday, in the streets of London, thousands of angry protesters assembled and rallied outside Downing Street, where the Prime Minister officially resides, the gathering was held to oppose the controversial move scheduled for early September.
“What Boris Johnson has done is just not British,” said builder Andrew Russell, 40, from Kent.”We have got to defend parliamentary sovereignty – closing down Parliament is anti-democratic and hypocritical.”Thousands of politicians and leading journalists from across the country have pledged to resist the decision to suspend Parliament calling it “Un-democratic”. They say that it’s an attempt to deny democratically elected politicians the chance to prevent a “no-deal” Brexit as the 31st October deadline to leave the European Union approaches.Prime Minister Boris Johnson has defended his decision to suspend the Parliament and also criticized his opponents, saying that while he’s trying to negotiate changes to the exit deal agreed by his predecessor, Theresa May, they are just trying to weaken his hand in Brussels.”I’m afraid that the more our friends and partners think at the back of their minds that Brexit could be stopped, that the UK could be kept in, by Parliament, the less likely they are to give us the deal that we need,” he told journalists on Friday.”And so, that’s why I really hope that MPs will allow the UK to do a deal and to get ready for a no-deal Brexit – and that’s the best way forward for our country.”
