Brexit fallout: UK's Johnson woos 'best and brightest' immigrants

Brexit fallout: UK's Johnson woos 'best and brightest' immigrants

MPs are now on summer recess and are not scheduled to get back to Westminster until September 3.

The worry is that once the United Kingdom leaves the European Union (EU), scientists and technicians from EU countries will no longer get automatic rights to live and work in the United Kingdom and will need to navigate Britain's current visa process, which is slow and expensive.

"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?" Just 29 per cent said he should step down so another government could be formed to stop a no-deal Brexit.

The British Labour party is considering holding a no-confidence vote against the Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

"With the Prime Minister defining the October 31 deadline as "do or die", and a simple choice between deal or no deal, it looks very hard for MPs who are opposed to no-deal to force a change of approach", said the report cited by Xinhua news agency.

The document was reportedly drawn up after a strategy meeting involving a cross-party group of MPs last week, and is believed to have been discussed with the Labour Party leadership.

Johnson has promised to take Britain out of the European Union on October 31 with or without a deal, increasing the possibility of a no-deal Brexit that has sent the pound tumbling.

Downing Street expects 9 September to be the first opportunity for a legislative battle, as the government is bound in law to provide a report updating on Northern Ireland on 4 September and to then debate it in parliament for five days.

The likelihood of a no-deal Brexit has increased significantly since Boris Johnson was appointed Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, with Ireland's Minister for Fiance Paschal Donohoe recently saying that it is a "very credible and material risk now". "He is very clear in his determination to want to get a deal".

The UK is due to leave the European Union on October 31.

He said: "The choice that faces us now is either disorder in terms of Brexit or an orderly, sensible approach and that's why I'm really pleased the structure of cabinet committees, the way in which government is bearing down upon the issues, shows a sense of urgency and objective that is absolutely essential if we're to avoid the sort of disorder I've talked about - and I'm increasingly confident we can achieve that".
