Wild claims that he could be jailed for refusing to obey this law only help his martyr act, and even if Parliament can order him to request an extension, it cannot control the EU's response.

So aside from the rather melodramatic spectacle of MPs who had just voted against an election holding up placards saying they were being silenced, there is no guarantee that their multiple defeats of Johnson in parliamentary votes will achieve anything tangible except to delay a general election until November at the earliest.

Britain is scheduled to leave the bloc October 31, although legislation passed last week by opposition MPs seeks to force the prime minister to ask Brussels for an extension to the Brexit process if no exit deal can be reached.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his cabinet are desperately searching for a way to navigate their way out of a Brexit impasse.

Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar warned Johnson that "there's no such thing as a clean break", and if Britain crashed out, it would "cause severe disruption for British and Irish people alike".

"It is time we all were more positive about Brexit".

MPs rejected the current agreement three times earlier this year, in large part because of its provisions to keep open the border between British Northern Ireland and European Union member Ireland.

Mr Farage and his team have identified 90 Labour seats, mainly in the Midlands and the North, which they say the Conservatives can't win but the Brexit Party could.

It sets the scene for what will be a bruising general election campaign.

Foreign secretary Dominic Raab said the government would abide by the law, but would also look "very carefully" at possible interpretations of the wording in the legislation.

There are still many questions to be answered about Brexit, but one clear outcome from the past week is that a no-deal Brexit is now a much more remote possibility.

Britain's opposition party leader Jeremy Corbyn speaks during Prime Minister's Questions in the House of Commons, London, Wednesday Sept. 4, 2019. Opposition lawmakers voted against the measure or abstained.

At 2 a.m. Tuesday several MPs interrupted the suspension ceremony by trying to physically restrain the speaker from leaving his chair.

In the event of another general election in the coming months, Mr Watson says Labour must be "crystal clear" about where it stands on Brexit if it wants to get a hearing for the rest of its domestic policy agenda.

'We can do a deal'Nigel Evans said a number of Labour MPs would back the deal. Even if Britain asks for an extension, some European Union members could veto it, Booth says. "I can only speculate as to the reasons behind his hesitation, but the obvious conclusion is that he does not think he will win".

An open border is crucial to the regional economy and underpins the peace process that ended decades of sectarian violence in Northern Ireland. Such concerns were underlined Monday as dissident Republicans attacked police with petrol bombs in Londonderry, a reminder that the implications of Brexit go far beyond the theatrics of Westminster.
