11:50 am
a decisive move that respects the referendum verdict 3 years ago lawrence lee reports from london bricks it was is and remains an idea about the british parliament taking back control of the agenda setting its own laws and making its own rules so what to make of the decision by the new prime minister to block it from sitting at all for a 5 week period at the most crucial moments in the entire process. with one eye on a very possible national election johnson insists it's about setting out his new government's plans and that m.p.'s are not being frozen out of having their say over bricks it will be time on both sides of that crucial october 17th summit ample time in parliament for m.p.'s to debate the e.u. debate breaks it and all the other issues ample time but those m.p.'s who have vowed to do anything in their power to block a no deal bricks it's even threaten to set up an alternative parliaments if their
11:51 am
views are ignored describe the johnson move as nothing short of a constitutional outrage a step on the road to dictatorship it is a constitution that rage this is an attempt by a prime minister who was elected by a very small number of people in the country is served to party membership to ride roughshod over parliament and prevent any legislation and debate that would stop this country leaving me you without a deal and all the problems that it will cause he seems to want to run headlong into the arms of donald trump. more determination to see before this is extraordinary johnson had been thought to have been getting on better with european leaders of late and hope had not been lost among them that some new deal could be found but time is now extremely short and there's a genuine sense of crisis among those who fear the hardest of brics it's the great

conundrum of a brecht it has always been whether it should simply fall to governments who execute the will of the people or whether parliamentarian should have some kind of final say to determine what thought of brecht's it they think people actually voted for by taking m.p.'s out of play at such a crucial time johnson is effectively testing whether they have the will the resolve to try to overthrow him his government and potentially the referendum result as well that. attempts will now probably come sooner rather than later national elections will almost certainly follow something surely must happen now to resolve this sense of democratic crisis in the u.k. lawrence lee al-jazeera london. need has more on the protests that followed barra's johnson's announcement. in the past 2 years since the brakes a referendum the conversation the public discourse surrounding leaving the e.u. has grown uglier and uglier who would have thought only a few years ago that the word coup would be used in relation to britain's democracy
