The British parliament rejected -309 votes against 298- the Labor Party's bet to prevent the future conservative prime minister from establishing a Brexit without an exit agreement with the European Union on October 31. The conservative deputies chose to avoid conflict and not interfere in the election of a new leader "Tory". In the United Kingdom the executive has the power to fix the order and agenda of Westminster.
The effort was supported by rebel conservatives such as Oliver Letwin and parties such as the Liberal Democrats or the Scottish Nationalists of the SNP. The parliament stopped control of the agenda by the opposition. October 31 is the last date agreed with the EU for the departure of the United Kingdom. The election of the new prime minister will be in the last week of July and then the parliament will go into recess.
Letwin tried unsuccessfully for the conservative caucus to back the motion: "The candidates to succeed May know that it is enough for them to enter Downing Street and do nothing for four weeks, and we would be outside the EU. , but it is a bomb whose wick is already on. If we do not deactivate it now, we will not be able to do it in September or October. "
