UK Parliament is suspended amid scenes of chaos

Tearful House of Commons Speaker John Bercow to stand down amid Brexit chaos

Members of Parliament will have no further opportunity to vote on any early elections until the end of the suspension period, which means that elections can not be held until at least late November.

The late night drama unfolded after opposition MPs refused to back Mr Johnson's bid to hold an election on 15 October and said a new law blocking a no-deal Brexit must be implemented first. "They are doing what they believe to be right and I recognise my role in this matter".

Referring to the lengthly suspension, the Speaker, John Bercow, says this prorogation is "not a standard or normal prorogation".

'I could not serve this House without a small but superb team in the Speaker's Home, my spouse Sally and my three youngsters Oliver, Freddie and Jemima, ' he mentioned as he made the announcement.

Bercow also made global headlines in 2017 when he banned US President Donald Trump from speaking in parliament due to his record of "racism and sexism". "He's not a tall man, but he has this enormous voice that projects at all the MPs and the whole of the rest of the world finds this quite transfixing I think".

When Bercow eventually returned to the Commons to confirm the prorogation, only a handful of Conservative MPs remained while the opposition benches were packed. I require no response from you.

A sing-off followed with Labour MPs singing Jerusalem while the SNP sang Flower of Scotland.

As well as the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats, this would include the Labour Party, to which he now belongs. The Labour protestors were shouting "shame on you" whilst holding signs saying "silenced" when MPs left the Commons.

Only 293 members of the House of Commons voted in favor of Johnson's request for early elections, far short of 434 votes required. Brexit without agreement would mean the immediate departure of the United Kingdom from the customs union, the single market, and arrangements created to facilitate trade.

"Other laws are in place to enable the United Kingdom's smooth exit from the European Union, establishing new arrangements on global sanctions, nuclear safeguards, customs and reciprocal healthcare arrangements". We believe our voice is important - both in representing the pro-EU perspective and also to help rebalance the right wing extremes of much of the United Kingdom national press.
