British lawmakers reject opposition move to block no-deal Brexit

Boris Johnson during the launch of his leadership campaign in central London said that no deal Brexit should not be blocked

She added: "What is the Leader of the House going to do to ensure that Parliament takes control of the process and we don't leave without a deal at the end of October because of an irresponsible prime minister?"

The EU's no-deal plans come as Britain's Conservative Party is picking a new party head and prime minister to replace Theresa May after her three consecutive failures to pass through the House of Commons the Withdrawal Agreement that she secured with the bloc.

Britain could be heading towards a constitutional crisis over Brexit as numerous candidates vying to succeed Theresa May are prepared to leave the European Union on October 31 without a deal but the United Kingdom parliament has indicated it will try to thwart such a scenario, concerned about the potential economic disruption. "Even if it means my resigning the whip and leaving the party, I will not allow this country to be taken out of the European Union on a no-deal Brexit without the approval of this House".

After the result was announced, to glee from the Tory benches, Mr Corbyn was heard telling Conservative MPs: "You won't be cheering in September".

Some MPs fear that a no-deal Brexit could cause some serious economic and political damage to the UK.

The Institute of Directors - one of the UK's employers' groups - said its members had so far failed to take advantage of the seven-month delay to Brexit and warned that companies should not put faith in politicians to produce an agreement.

"This is just the start, not the end of our efforts to block no deal". Labour stands ready to use whatever mechanism it can to protect jobs, the economy and communities from the disastrous consequences of a no deal Brexit. But all Tory leadership candidates need to know that we will not give up on the fight to stop a no deal Brexit.

Jo Swinson, deputy leader of the Liberal Democrats and hopeful to succeed Vince Cable as leader, blasted MPs for "putting party loyalty ahead of national interest" by rejecting the bill.

"It has to be respected by whoever is the next British prime minister", he continued.

If it had passed, it would have given MPs the opportunity to table legislation with a view to stopping no deal.

In the debate preceding the vote, Starmer claimed that MPs had been forced to act due to declared intentions by Tory leadership candidates such as Boris Johnson and Dominic Raab to prorogue parliament.
