'Zombie' UK parliament may get Brexit boot

CAMBORNE ENGLAND- OCTOBER 14 Leader of the Brexit Party Nigel Farage addresses the audience at The Brexit Party rally at Carn Brea Leisure Centre

But after Johnson failed to get British lawmakers to pass his Brexit divorce deal with the bloc, the European Union granted Britain a three-month delay, setting a new Brexit deadline of January 31. We're going after the big polluters.

"Although it looks like the election will de facto be another referendum on Brexit, it is important to remember that the United Kingdom is a first-past-the-post system where a popular vote doesn't always translate into winning a majority of seats", Dr Roslyn Fuller, director of the Solonian Democracy Institute in Dublin and author of "Beasts and Gods" stated.

Mr Corbyn accused the president of trying to meddle in the election.

The British tabloid press celebrates the Brexit that wasn't with angry headlines, with the pro-Brexit Daily Mail announcing that "Labour declares class war: Jeremy Corbyn says he would hold a second referendum and delay Brexit for at least SIX MONTHS".

The Prime Minister knew he didn't have the numbers in parliament to allow him to keep these promises, and to what extent the British electorate will now feel Mr Johnson was willfully misleading them with these repeated dishonest claims will be revealed at the ballot box. Culture Secretary Nicky Morgan of the Conservative Party is among those opting out, citing the abuse she had received over Brexit. Brexit has variously tired, enthused and enraged swathes of voters while eroding loyalties to the two major parties.

Farage, a close Trump ally, criticised then-US president Barack Obama in 2016 for "interfering" in British democracy after he commented on possible US-Britain trade deals post-Brexit.

Mr Johnson - who will kick off his campaign tour with visits to a school, hospital and police station later - said he had secured a "great deal" from the EU.

May's move was a spectacular miscalculation that cost the Conservative Party its majority in Parliament.

"To be honest with you, this deal, under certain aspects of the deal, you can't do it". "If you vote for us and we get our programme through, which we will - as a I say, it's oven-ready, it's there to go - we can be out, at the absolute latest, by January next year". It left her unable to get her Brexit divorce plan passed by Parliament, leading to her resignation and the rise of a new prime minister, Johnson, who took power in July.

"Yes he has [spoken to me] and he also knows how hard it is, he's in a very hard position".

Johnson, on the other hand, is "fantastic" and "the exact right guy for the times", Trump said. And I know that you (Farage) and him will end up doing something that could be terrific. "And that failure is his alone", Corbyn said, explaining that the Labour party would let the "people decide whether to leave with a sensible deal or remain".

The president has repeatedly emphasized the possibility of a U.S. -U.K. trade deal after Brexit, but many analysts are skeptical of the merits of such a deal.

"Our central view is we probably assume that Johnson does manage to cobble together a government and he gets the deal through", said Rabobank's Foley, who expects the currency could rally 2% to $1.32 on this scenario before trade talks with the European Union again cap sterling strength."In an election, the Tories are widely expected to win and implement the Johnson deal", said BlueBay's Dowding.
