Johnson rejects call to recall Parliament over Brexit

It is as This Writer said: the number of MPs calling for Boris Johnson to recall Parliament was not enough to convince him to do it.

His spokeswoman specifically referred to the number of MPs who supported the motion to return on September 3.

The implication is clear: 110 MPs demanding recall cannot beat more than 500 who supported the recess until that date.

It’s a lesson the Liberal Democrats would do well to learn.

At a briefing on Monday, the prime minister’s spokeswoman said there were no plans to do so.

“The House of Commons agreed the date it would rise for summer recess, as well as its return on 3 September, and this was passed by a majority of close to 200 MPs,” she said.

    Well yes, why would he? He’s planning (allegedly) to leave with no deal on 31st October and this would simply hinder it. That’s IF he goes ahead with it. May said the same, then didn’t do it either. he was specifically voted in precisely because his own party think he is pig-headed and stupid enough to actually DO this. They are more worried about future votes from the electorate (they’d MASSIVELY lose out to the Brexit Party if they fail to leave) and retaining power than they are about the consequences of no deal. THEY won’t be affected by that, will they?

    Yes, Swinson should’ve paid more attention to her maths at school, fourteen votes doesn’t go very far in parliament…
