It is understood that the United Kingdom’s Prime Minister, Boris Johnson has successfully convinced Queen Elizabeth II to suspend parliament from mid-September until October 14.
The suspension came after Boris johnson requested the permission of the Queen to suspend parliamentary body until two weeks before the UK sets to leave the EU — enraging anti-Brexit MPs.
Naija News understands that this might be a plot by Boris’s Government to stop the Nations parliamentarians hindering a no-deal Brexit.
MPs will return to London later than in recent years, giving pro-EU lawmakers less time than expected to thwart Johnson’s Brexit plans before Britain is due to leave the European Union on October 31.
John Bercow, House of Commons speaker, described the prorogation as “constitutional outrage”.
Bercow said: “…it is blindingly obvious that the purpose of [suspending Parliament] now would be to stop [MPs] debating Brexit and performing its duty in shaping a course for the country.”
But Johnson has denied the allegations, saying the suspension has nothing to do with Brexit.
Jeremy Corbyn, Labour leader, said when the parliament resumes on September 3, “the first thing we’ll do is attempt legislation to prevent what he is doing”.
“Suspending Parliament is not acceptable, it is not on. What the prime minister is doing is a smash and grab on our democracy to force through a no-deal exit from the European Union,” he said.
“What is he so afraid of to suspend parliament to prevent parliament from discussing these matters.
“So when parliament does meet very briefly next week, the first thing we’ll do is attempt legislation to prevent what he is doing and secondly, we’ll challenge him with a vote of no confidence at some point.”
