Brexit news: Brexit Party chairman Tice launches devastating attack on Parliament on QT | UK | News


In a fiery debate on the programme, Mr Tice defended the referendum result while also criticising the panel for delivering Brexit to the public. Following Emily Thornberry’s stern critique of Boris Johnson, the Brexit Party chairman quickly intervened to criticise the current state of the House of Commons.

Mr Tice said: “Let’s be very clear why this is a mess.

“Parliament is playing putrid games with our democracy.”

Following Mr Tice’s short speech, Question Time host, Fiona Bruce quickly responded by asking whether the public could trust Boris Johnson.

In response, the Brexit Party MEP said: “I do trust Boris, he is trying to work in the national interest but the truth is that Parliament is now stopping him.”

Mr Johnson was delivered yet another blow this week following the resignation f his brother Jo Johnson on Thursday.

Upon resigning, Jo Johnson admitted that he had been “torn between family loyalty and national interest”.

The MP for Orpington also spoke of an “unresolvable tension” in his role.

Jo Johnson’s decision comes as 21 Tory MPs were removed from the party whip after voting against the Government to prevent a no deal Brexit.

Similarly, Speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow was also criticised for his personal attack on Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, Michael Gove, in the Commons this week.

In a shocking outburst from the Speaker, he instructed Mr Gove to sit down and behave.

Referencing the school which their children attend, Mr Bercow instructed the Tory MP to be “a good boy”.

The Speaker said: “I say to the Chancellor of the Duchy, that when he turns up at our school as a parent, he’s a very well-behaved fellow.

“He wouldn’t dare behave like that in front of the headmaster and neither would I.

“Don’t gesticulate, don’t rant, spare us the theatrics, behave yourself, be a good boy, young man. Be a good boy.”

Away from the level of discourse within Parliament, the Government announced that it will go forward with a plan to vote on an early election bill on Monday.

The initial plan from Boris Johnson was defeated in Parliament on Wednesday.

Boris Johnson had hoped to press forward with a snap election on October 15 following his defeat on the no deal bill.

In the wake of the early election announcement, the Prime Minister said he would rather be “dead in a ditch” then ask for an extension from the EU.
