C4 News: Super Saturday: MPs back Brexit deal delay

20/10/2019

Not Super Saturday but Souffle Saturday quipped one MP – as instead of triumphantly passing the deal, Brexiters were sent home deflated.

Number 10 is now flatly refusing to say whether Boris Johnson will send the extension letter tonight. He defiantly said he wouldn’t “negotiate” – and he doesn’t have to: the law just says he has to send the letter. And ministers left Parliament saying they’d try again on Monday. But so will those who think its bad deal. We’re also joined by DUP leader Sammy Wilson, who’s party voted against the Government, Conservative Iain Duncan Smith, Labour’s shadow business minister Laura Pidcock, the Liberal Democrat MP Sarah Wollaston and SNP Deputy Westminster Leader Kirsty Blackman. Meanwhile, as MPs debated and voted, organisers of the People’s Vote march demanding a second referendum claimed that up to a million people took to the streets of London today. Whatever the actual numbers, the crowds filling the streets of Westminster broke into cheers at the news that there could be a further Brexit delay.
