UK: Another weekend of Brexit bluster has come to pass. Focus has fallen on ways
that PM Johnson will try & push back against parliament forcing him to extend
the Brexit deadline beyond Oct 31, if no deal is forthcoming. As a reminder, the
PM is exp. to lose a vote on holding an October snap elex later today, with exp.
that parliament will rise thereafter. An ITV reporter has tweeted that a
cross-party group of MPs has agreed on emergency debates to be scheduled for
Monday. The topics are rumoured to be revealing gov't paperwork on operation
Yellowhammer (the worst-case scenario playbook) & the PM adhering to the rule of
law (on the back of reports & hints that he might be willing to bend it).
- Work & Pensions Sec Amber Rudd (a "remainer") quit her post this weekend, and
is considering whether to stand as an independent in the case of a general elex.
- Elsewhere, the latest round of opinion polls were seen, with the Tories
leading all 4, 3-14 point leads vs. Labour. Johnson was still heavily preferred
as PM vs. Corbyn, but the assessment of the current PM's performance was much
more mixed in the wake of the developments seen over the last week or so.
- Johnson will travel to Dublin to meet with his Irish counterpart later today.
