  • MP'S FINALLY APPROVE JOHNSON'S BREXIT DEAL BY 330 TO 231

    The Conservative Party

    After three years of deadlock, bitter infighting between political parties and multiple amendments to the referendum, history has finally been made after a majority of 99 MP's backed the EU Withdrawal Agreement Bill (WAB) in the house of commons.

    Legislation will now pass to the house of Lords who will scrutinise it further later this week before the government hopes it becomes enshrined in law by the 22nd of Jan. This means that the UK departure date from the EU will be on the 31st of Jan as expected.

    After the resounding victory at the general election a win for Boris's deal was never in doubt with the WAB clearing the commons by 330 votes to 231.

    The vote symbolises the end of the union between the UK and the EU, setting the country off on its own path.

    Both sides will now work on hammering out the details of a future deal on trade with the EU seeking to extend the transition period beyond the 2020 date set by Johnson.

    Meanwhile The PM requested for the world famous Big Ben to chime on Jan 31st at 11pm to mark the historic moment, house speaker Sir Lindsey Hoyle said he would not block the move should the house wish it.
