British Prime Minister Boris Johnson suffered a major setback on Saturday as the country's parliament voted to delay the Brexit ahead of the October 31 deadline. Lawmakers voted by 322 to 306 in favor of an amendment that obliges the British government to request an extension from Brussels .

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has announced a Brexit deal with the European Union ahead of a crucial summit in Brussels. The details of the agreement were announced at a joint press conference with EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker in Brussels today. "We have a great new Brexit deal,” Johnson declared.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has laid out his final offer to the European Union ahead of the October 31 Brexit deadline. If Brussels fails to accept the proposal, the UK will leave the EU without a deal, Johnson warned. The UK will be "coming out of the EU on October 31," he said. The proposal will "honor the referendum," Johnson told parliament on Thursday. He described his five-point offer as a set of "constructive and reasonable proposals, which provide a compromise for both sides."

The British Supreme Court has ruled Prime Minister Boris Johnson's decision to suspend the country's parliament for five weeks "unlawful, void and of no effect." The verdict paves the way for the UK House of Commons to reconvene tomorrow. Johnson, who was in New York for a United Nations summit at the time of the court ruling, promised to respect the top court's decision but "strongly disagreed" with it. He also reiterated his commitment to take his country out of the EU by the end of the next month.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has told the country's Supreme Court to stay out of "political arena." The top judges will soon hear evidence on whether he acted lawfully by suspending the parliament until October 14. Johnson "warned Britain's most senior judges not to intervene in his decision to suspend Parliament," UK's Daily Mail reported. The suspension of parliament is an "inherently and fundamentally political" matter and is not something for the judiciary to decide, the government's lawyer Sir James Eadie argued before the UK Supreme Court.

The United Kingdom is heading towards an uncertain future since Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Members of Parliament (MP) still cannot agree on Brexit. Parliament just entered a five-week-long suspension ahead of the October 31 Brexit deadline. Ahead of the parliament's shutdown, Johnson hoped to call a snap election for mid-October but failed twice to secure the required two-thirds majority in the Lower House of Commons. Instead, the MPs passed a bill designed to delay the Brexit deadline beyond October if the UK failed to reach a deal with the European Union.

UK Speaker of the Commons John Bercow emotionally announced today that he would step down from his post by October 31, which is the Brexit deadline. He will step down immediately if parliament votes for an election tonight. From The Telegraph:
I would like to make a personal statement to the House. At the 2017 general election i [sic] promised my wife and children it would be my last. This is a pledge i [sic] intend to keep. If the house votes tonight for an early election my tenure as Speaker and MP will end when this Parliament ends.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson plans to defy the Brexit delay bill, London-based newspaper The Telegraph reported. The House of Lords, the unelected Upper House of the UK Parliament, passed a bill on Friday blocking a no-deal Brexit ahead of the October 31 deadline. The bill, expected to be signed into law by the Queen on Monday, aims to force the British government to delay Brexit if it fails to reach a deal with the European Union.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson's plan to push for a no-deal Brexit suffered a setback today after the country's parliament passed a bill to delay the Brexit beyond October 31. The motion was voted by 327 votes to 299, giving it a majority of 28 in the Lower House. The bill has now moved to the Upper House.

The European Union is ready to withdraw the October 31 deadline in a bid to prevent a no-deal Brexit, French President Emmanuel Macron said. The French announcement, reported by the British newspaper Daily Telegraph, comes days after Prime Minister Boris Johnson moved to suspend the nation's parliament for five weeks, a step likely to curb lawmakers' ability to pass resolutions challenging a possible no-deal Brexit.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has moved to suspend the British parliament for at least a month. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II has approved this request, allowing for a suspension until October 14. The decision comes as pro-EU Members of Parliament (MPs) are lobbying to prevent a possible no-deal Brexit.

The European Union expects the United Kingdom to pay a £39 billion ($48 billion) 'divorce bill' even in the case of a no-deal Brexit. The refusal to pay the amount could hurt the UK's prospects of entering into a trade agreement with the remaining 27 member state of the bloc. The UK is set to leave the EU on October 31.

In an ongoing war of words, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has told European Council President Donald Tusk that he will go down in history as 'Mr No-Deal' if the European Union continues with its refusal to change the withdrawal agreement. The remark came after the European Council President, who head the EU's executive body, said that Prime Minister Johnson should accept the withdrawal agreement handed by Brussels to his predecessor Theresa May as he "will not like to go down in history as 'Mr No Deal'."

Ahead of his European trip, President Donald Trump has supported British Prime Minister Boris Johnson as he tries to negotiate a withdrawal agreement with the European Union. "That’s a very tough bargain they are driving, the European Union. We are going to see if we can work something out," President Trump said on Wednesday. The U.S. President will be in France this weekend to attend the annual Group of Seven (G-7) summit.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has accused some British Members of Parliament (MP) of collaborating with the European Union to prevent Brexit. "There’s a terrible collaboration, as it were, going on between people who think they can block Brexit in parliament and our European friends," Prime Minister Johnson said during a question-and-answer session on Facebook.

Newly-appointed British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has vowed to take his country out of the European Union within the next 99 days. "We will come out on 31 October, no ifs and no buts," Boris Johnson said in his first public speech as prime minister on Wednesday. "The British people are tired of waiting. The time has come to act."

Boris Johnson beat Jeremy Hunt today to win the Tory leadership in the United Kingdom, which means he will replace outgoing British Prime Minister Theresa May. Johnson received 92,513 votes while Hunt only secured 46,656.
