"Lawmakers reconvene Sept. 3 but under prorogation will disband the following week. They return Oct. 14, just 17 days before Britain's Oct. 31 deadline to leave the European Union.
In 2016, Britain voted in a referendum to leave the EU. Former Prime Minister Theresa May negotiated a divorce deal with the EU but Parliament rejected the agreement three times. The impasse ultimately brought down her government.
Meanwhile, Brexiteers have insisted that despite concerns over economic chaos, Britain must leave even without a deal.
"All these people who are wailing and gnashing of teeth know that there are two ways of doing what they want to do," Rees-Mogg, a member of Johnson's Conservative Party and a confirmed euroskeptic, told the broadcaster. "One, is to change the government and the other is to change the law."
"If they don't have either the courage or the gumption to do either of those then we will leave on the 31st of October in accordance with the referendum result," he added." NPR
Brexit? I don't really care about that. IMO the Brits will be better off if they crash out of the moribund EU and make a wide reaching trade deal with the US.
Ireland's internal border? Really? The Micks can't solve that problem between north and south? Really? As I said, I don't really care what they do with the Brexit issue.
OTOH I am surprised at the evidently automatic action of the sovereign in abjectly submitting to BJ in this clearly political situation. It would seem to me that if the sovereign is not sovereign then why have a sovereign? Tourism? Really? The whole panoply of Dukes and Duchesses, lords and lordlings is damned expensive. Some of the lifestyle of the monarchy and its parasitic "followers" is funded from long held properties acquired through dubious means but a lot of that lifestyle is publicly funded.
For what? The British people are so sentimental that they swoon at the sight of people like Harry and his duchess?
Does anyone here have a realistic estimate of how much money would be saved in the UK's budget by abolishing the monarchy and its other dimensional and separate world? pl
