Brexit: PM sends EU unsigned request seeking Brexit delay - BBC News

  • Published on Oct 19, 2019
  • Boris Johnson has sent a request to the EU for a delay to Brexit - but without his signature.
    The request was accompanied by a second letter, signed by Mr Johnson, which says he believes that a delay would be a mistake.
    The PM was required by law to ask the EU for an extension to the 31 October deadline after losing a Commons vote.
    EU Council President Donald Tusk tweeted that he had received the extension request.
    He did not provide details of its content, but added that he will now consult EU leaders "on how to react".
    Hours after losing a crunch vote in a historic Saturday session in the House of Commons, the prime minister ordered a senior diplomat to send an unsigned photocopy of the call by MPs set out in the so-called Benn Act, passed last month.

    The British government doesn't respect human rights.Heres Your manufactured artificial schizophrenia and antipsychotic medication to make a man a mental cases and use hypnotic suggestions as schizophrenia messages to see if the man will be violent or committed suicide get drunk To alcoholism or collect dvds,paper and magazine cuttings in hoarding type collections for the victim to go to the government collaborators in the NHS and show his hoarding as proof of the psychological exploitation the campaign against him.
    They stole his human rights to torture practice assault with frequencies.His human rights to family taken from him by Organised psychological exploitation experiments of mind control coercive control.Not a ten minute joke for television but a life time taken by psychiatrists and psychologists involved in this human rights.This is real this is a crime this must be heard in court.The British government doesn't respect human rights.No consent no rights to access and those who fight for human rehoused know about this crime think it's funny as the government uses the television industry to hide these criminals.I hate them.

    We won't get brexit because the globalist elite have decided we won't have it.
    What you WILL have is forced 'smart cities' and people being made to share or give up their cars.
    Greening over our streets is up and running already in some city centres ( Sheffield for one example ) and they won't stop.
    People can carry on believing the phoney left-right/Labour-Tory paradigm
    for as long as they want, but it won't make a jot of difference unless
    people wake up to what is REALLY going on.

    It’s honestly the biggest joke of all time this Brexit delay . What a bunch of total pricks . I bet they even delay going to the karzi ....cause they can’t make their mind up . We are being laughed at by the rest of the world. At least thatcher didn’t dither when she liberated the Falkland Islands . Imagine BorisJohnson and his mob being in power then . The falklands would have remained in the Argentine hands . I always said we will never leave .

    The UK and the EU will forge very close alliance to the stability of the western alliance. We need to applaud China for its ascendancy to capitalism and not aspiring to world's militaristic hegemony . We need to honour universal quest for human right and how we treat the earth for other generations to come.

    The only sensible thing to do is gold a 2nd public referendum but this time without the misleading information and the lies, the simple fact is that in 2020 there is a a massive EU clampdown on tax evading companies and individuals...That is what Brexit is about, and don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

    How delusional on Johnson's part . He is voted down , and legislation stops him from crashing out without a deal voted on in parliament . Now he is saying he's still leaving next week , despite requesting an extension . Almost as delusional that Uk is going to be the best country in the world to live in , best weather , best roads , best schools , best wealth , best hospitals , and to lead the world in space exploration . Last week's statements latter .

    There was no talk of a deal when I voted leave! I didn’t expect it to be easy in the short term but long term we will be fine. These idiots are driving me insane. I hope the EU doesn’t grant us an extension and I hope we get a clean break Brexit!

    When will they understand, this is not about what each political party wants or doesn't want, it's about what the 17.4 million voted for. Their sense of self-importance, their over-inflated egos couple with their total disregard for the wishes of the majority has incensed the electorate. This is no longer about Brexit, it's now all about democracy. The people versus Parliament!
