Brexit: 'if it passes, it skips the deal vote'

(ANSA) - LONDON, OCTOBER 19 - Boris Johnson is ready to cancel the parliamentary vote scheduled today on the Brexit agreement reached with the EU, if the House of Commons will first approve an amendment that aims to impose a postponement beyond 31 October. The BBC reports it. The move would open an institutional confrontation, given that Johnson would at that point refuse to send an extension request to Brussels, in defiance of the so-called anti-no deal law, effectively putting the no deal back on the table even at the cost of an arm wrestling. in court.
