MORE than 100 MPs across the Commons have demanded Boris Johnson immediately recall Parliament and let it sit permanently until Britain’s scheduled EU departure on October 31.
Tory former ministers Dominic Grieve and Guto Bebb were among the signatories of a letter sent to the PM which claims a “creeping and disturbing populism” is taking over his discourse with the EU.
The Westminster leaders of the SNP, Liberal Democrats, Plaid Cymru, Change UK and the Green Party’s Caroline Lucas also backed the call, along with several Labour MPs.
They wrote: “Since the second world war, Parliament has been recalled multiple times in every decade for a wide range of political, security and economic reasons.
“Our country is on the brink of an economic crisis as we career towards a no-deal Brexit which will have an immediate effect on food and medical supplies, damage our economy, jobs, the public finances, public services, universities and long-term economic security.”
