Protests over Johnson’s latest move widens

The protests and outrage against British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s latest political manouver widens. Boris Johnson’s move to suspend Parliament intensified Thursday amid protests, legal action and a petition to block the move which has gathered more than 1 million signatures in just over 24 hours.

Johnson’s maneuver gives his political opponents even less time to prevent a chaotic no-deal Brexit before the Oct. 31 withdrawal deadline.

But the decision outraged critics and is serving as a unifying force for the varied opposition forces who have confirmed they will press on with measures to block a departure from the European Union without a deal despite Johnson’s actions.
