UK House Speaker, John Bercow, reveals himself to be driving force in Brexit sabotage (Video)

The Duran Quick Take: Episode 343.

The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris discuss how UK Speaker of the House John Bercow continues to sabotage Boris Johnson’s request for a “meaningful vote” on the Brexit deal agreed with the EU.

Bercow ruled that granting such a request would amount to debating the same matter twice, even though he allowed former Theresa May to do the exact same thing when she was put her agreement to a vote in the House multiple times.

UK Speaker of the House John Bercow has rejected the UK government’s request for a so-called “meaningful vote” on the Brexit deal agreed with the EU, in a further blow to PM Boris Johnson.
Bercow ruled that granting such a request would amount to debating the same matter twice.

Speaking in the House of Commons on Monday he told MPs: “My ruling is that the motion will not be debated today as it would be repetitive and disorderly to do so.”

He explained that it was clear that motions before the house are “in substance the same” and that the matter was ostensibly decided 48 hours ago.

Responding to Bercow’s decision not to grant a “meaningful vote”, the UK prime minister’s spokesperson expressed their disappointment at the Speaker “yet again” denying “us a chance to deliver on the will of British people…[The] Public want Brexit done.”

Attention now moves to the Withdrawal Agreement Bill (WAB), which will be published on Monday evening, as the UK government scrambles to tie up a Brexit deal before October 31 – when Britain is scheduled to leave the EU.

Voting on the bill, unamended and amended with a series of propositions, including a customs union and a second EU referendum, is expected to take place on Tuesday in the UK Parliament.

In the House of Commons on Saturday, an amendment proposed by former Tory cabinet minister Sir Oliver Letwin was passed by UK lawmakers. It ostensibly means that support for Johnson’s deal with the EU will be withheld until formal ratification legislation of the WAB is passed by MPs in the lower house and by lords in the upper house.

It comes after the Court of Session in Edinburgh delayed ruling on whether Johnson acted unlawfully in his request for a Brexit delay from Brussels on Saturday.

Johnson sent European Council President Donald Tusk a total of three documents: an unsigned draft letter asking for a delay; a cover letter explaining that he was forced to do so; and a signed letter emphasizing that any extension would be a “mistake.”

And in other news… A bit late to the punch there Alex. The slimy turd has been breaking protocol and doing everything to run interference since Cameron held the referendum (possibly even before) in 2016. Any suggestion of a clean deal or a pro brexit movement in parliament and he’s quick to drag up antiquated by-laws yet any sniff of a stitch up and he turns a blind eye. It’s something both leavers and remainers knew from the start and now the leavers and a huge number of remainers are getting tired of. Brexiteers are getting even more polarized by… Read more »

I hope Mr Bercow’s constituents have taken note of his doctrine that sovereign power resides neither with the Sovereign in Parliament nor with the people, but solely with him.

He should never be elected to any political post for the rest of his life.

Doesn’t it seem odd that a single man should be able to prevent Brexit, frustrate all the government’s plans, and generally hold the UK’s fate in the palm of his hand?

Especially since that man occupies a post specifically intended to be the quintessence of political neutrality!

Nigel Farage wants a clean break. There is actually no such thing. Here’s what Ivan Rogers, former UK ambassador to the EU, said last month. “The central problem with ‘no deal’ is that it is being heavily (mis)sold as providing certainty, finality – a ‘clean break’ – when it would manifestly do nothing of the sort. … It encourages a public … to believe that ‘closure’ might be just weeks away. But this is completely spurious. The reality of ‘no deal’ is that it would leave all the most intractable issues about our future relationship with the EU unresolved, and… Read more »

Bingo. Regardless of where you want to start, the technicality and ultimate reality is that Article 50 still has to come into play for any polite withdrawl and while Article 50 is only truly effective for up to 2 years there is nothing beyond to stop further deals and negotiations with the EU. it’s this point that is being mis-sold up and down the board if it’s being realised at all. We are leaving, not abandoning. We are revoking the membership not the fact the EU exists and we still have a future with them. What the deals were in… Read more »

It would be the first steps to freedom & independence from the doomed EUSStitanic.
& UK would no longer be a cash cow for the failing globalist project.

We are not a cash cow for the EU. We have a large rebate thanks to Thatcher, and we have opt-outs for everything we don’t like. We would not have to be part of any further integration, which may never happen anyway.

The ‘failed globalist project’ you mention is actually the New World Order of the Illuminati, which wants Brexit because we will be easier to control.
