MPs back Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal for UK to leave EU in January, prompting fear for British expats in Spain

Boris Johnson

MPs have overwhelmingly backed Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal to leave the EU on January 31, by 358 to 234.

They voted in favour of the EU (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill, which bans the extension of a transition period.

The timetable of the ‘Brexit bill’ will now be voted on by the House of Commons and House of Lords.

MAJORITY: Johnson’s Brexit bill was overwhelmingly passed

The majority of 124 by which the bill was passed gives Johnson greater power to make good on his primary campaign message to ‘get Brexit done’.

It comes after the Conservative leader lead the Tories to their biggest general election win since Margaret Thatcher.

Johnson described the bill as a way to ‘move forward’ and ‘a better and fairer way’ to get Brexit done’.
