Boris Johnson unveils fast-track visa plans

Boris Johnson unveils fast-track visa plans

Britain's opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn speaks during a rally calling for a general election in London, Britain July 25,2019.

Boris Johnson has announced plans for a fast-track visa pathway for foreign scientists in a bid to boost the UK's research sector after Brexit.

"It's above my pay grade to say when we'll move the vote of no confidence", she said, "But, who has confidence in Boris Johnson apart from the people around him?" In this event, Dominic Cummings, Johnson's senior adviser, has threatened to press ahead with Brexit on 31 October with or without a deal and schedule the election for the days after that date, with parliament shut down.

MPs are said to believe the Fixed-Term Parliament Act, which dictates what happens if a prime minister loses the confidence of MPs, gives them an opportunity to mobilise against no deal. Especially given the large number of independent MPs whose support is not clear, coupled with the possibility that some pro-Brexit Labour MPs could abstain.

The poll of 2,003 adults in the United Kingdom conducted between the 8th and 9th of August found that when asked what Prime Minister Boris Johnson should do if he is unable to make changes to the Withdrawal Agreement - enabling it to pass the House of Commons - 46 per cent of respondents said he should "go ahead with Brexit on October 31st even if it means leaving with "no deal".

Instead, leading Conservatives in the "no to no deal" campaign are prioritising legislative routes to blocking a no-deal Brexit on 31 October.

MPs opposed to no deal believe they can topple Johnson's government, then use a 14-day window before an election to change the law, forcing Johnson to request an Article 50 extension to the Brexit deadline.

The spokesman added: "He has held a number of conversations with European Union leaders, so has the prime minister's sherpa David Frost".

Meanwhile, several drugmakers have stockpiled drugs, fearing that a no-deal Brexit would make it harder for them to import products and raw materials due to the absence of formalized trade rules between the United Kingdom and European Union.
