UK par­lia­ment will act to stop no deal Brexit — pro-EU party leader

The Borneo Post - - WORLD -

LON­DON: The British par­lia­ment will act to stop a no deal Brexit from hap­pen­ing, Vince Ca­ble, the leader of the pro-EU Lib­eral Democrats, said yes­ter­day.

The Sun­day Times, cit­ing a se­nior gov­ern­ment source, re­ported that rebel law­mak­ers were plan­ning to wrest con­trol of the leg­isla­tive agenda away from Prime Min­is­ter Theresa May next week with a view to sus­pend­ing or de­lay­ing Brexit.

Asked whether law­mak­ers could bring for­ward leg­is­la­tion to re­voke Ar­ti­cle 50, Ca­ble told BBC TV: “Yes that is ex­actly what will hap­pen and that is ex­actly what we should be do­ing be­cause it would be ab­so­lutely out­ra­geous and un­for­giv­able if the chaotic cir­cum­stances of a no deal were al­lowed to hap­pen.”

“I think par­lia­ment will take con­trol of this process, will in­sist that we pur­sue the op­tion of no Brexit,” he added.
