ONRpington is half an hour away by train from London and has all the features of a suburban market town: independent shops, traditional English cafes and pubs. A little road down the road from its train station, a toasted house hosts a local conservative association. Huge Jo Johnson banner rises to the lawn outside, and his face looks toward drivers heading south to Kent. Despite this and the fact that less than 24 hours since Johnson gave up on the government and worsened the Brexit crisis that affected Theresa May, many of his constituents on the high street with trees did not recognize his name.
In Reku Zenu, the Asian restaurant, Denislav Ivanov, 24, raises floors. He only heard about another Tory named Johnson. "The guy with the hair has a brother and he's anti-Brexit?" Pita Ivanov, incredible. He thinks Brexit will be bad for our economy, but after leaving Europe since leaving Poland, he was not worried about his own status. "I speak Spanish, I am young, I will move to Spain," he says.
Some of those who knew their representative by name also resigned on Friday. "I heard him warn that Brexit would make traffic to Dover a lot worse, because of customs checks," says Frieda McClorey, 85, while waiting for his bus. "I think he has resigned properly, and I voted for him to stay, although many of my friends have voted to leave, and I hope there will be another referendum," she says.
On the other side of the street, Charlotte Drake, 29, goes to work as a mentor for the National Citizenship Project. She, like most people from Orpington, voted for her to leave. She was and remains concerned about immigration. But Drake now thinks the Leave campaign has left a lot of false promises. "Many people change their minds," she says, but does not reveal her own hand.
If Jo Johnson's resignation is intended, then he will speed up the shift of attitudes Drake noticed in this corner of the Canta. Despite all the deep and burning divisions in Westminster and across the country and the successive resignations of his government (Jo Johnson was the sixth minister left specifically over Brexit), Theresa May always believed that when the crisis came to a moment when On March 29 next year, a solution was offered to abolish Britain from the EU, its party and the country joined together enough behind to allow the parliament to withdraw the withdrawal agreement. The Earth will gather behind its vision of Brexit.
But instead, as people become more aware of what they leave the EU, many MPs believe the opposite happens. This weekend, with time, Tory remains and Brexiters are getting closer – but the opposite of what the Prime Minister hoped for. More and more he speaks against what is being offered – from different sides of the ideological division of Brexit. The Johnson family was divided between Brexiter Boris and the remains of the tribe, his brother Jo, sister Rachel and father Stanley. But they agree: the deal in May would be awesome for the country, leaving Britain a far worse arrangement than staying in the EU.
With work advocating against any deal that does not meet the six tests and Tory's hard-won Brexitera led by Jacob Rees-Moggom threatening to vote on his contract, it seems he will hope in May to win a "proposal of approval" in parliament soon. Allegedly, ten Ulster Unionst MPs supporting May's administration say they will reject anything that could create a hard border in the Irish Sea.
Jo Johnson had yesterday urged other Tory ministers to follow him from the government if they felt like him. "I think it's so important that MPs can take a stand. I did it, if others think it's right for them, it's good on them," BBC Radio 4 said. Today program. "This is one of the most important issues we will ever face in our political career, and everyone thinks very hard about it."
He was acting, he said, because he felt the duty of his constituents in Orpington. The highways through Kent would become a giant truck park and economic damage would be felt by everyone. "My priority is really just to get me as MP MP now to try to push the ground to stop and think before we do something irremediably stupid." Referring to a new referendum, the former Traffic Minister added, "My view is that it is so different from what was written to be an absolute parasite if we did not go back to people and wonder if they really want to leave the EU on this extraordinary hopeless basis ".
Yesterday, former Secretary of Education Tory, Justine Greening, added the Tory party feeling in the war, breaking away in the proposed deal in May, saying it would achieve exactly the opposite of what Eurosceptics always want – the return of sovereignty to the UK from the EU. "The parliamentary stalemate has been clear for some time," Greening said. "Now it is crucial that parliament vote on this plan, as it is the greatest incentive for sovereignty in modern times, but the government and parliament must admit that we need to give people the final say on Brexit, only they can break the deadlock and choose from practical options for the future Britain that is now on the table. "
Tory MP and Chief Engineer Anna Soubry had spent much of yesterday in conversation with people in her constituency Broxtowe in Nottinghamshire, including some of the previous hard-line Brexiters, and she said she had noticed the illumination. "There are people who were unwavering Brexiters, true believers, who now say that instead of having this unpleasant deal, which is neither a fish nor a breach, and all the economic damage that would follow, we should think again and give people the chance to reject it. What Jo Johnson has articulated is what more and more people are beginning to feel – that we can not go ahead with this, because that's not what anyone wants, regardless of their original views. "
With more of Tory's remnants and resignations that are now opposed, the Mayan task is scary. The immediate task of Downing Streets is that its deeply divided cabinet is about the ultimate unresolved element of a potential deal with the EU: a legally complex issue to avoid a firm border between Northern Ireland and the Republic after Brexit. Downing Street knows he's in a race against time. May be desperate to put a proposal in front of the Lower House before Christmas, hoping to somehow pass. Number 10 went to a government meeting earlier this week, probably on Tuesday. But among the top ministers, disagreements over how the UK will come out of the so-called "backstop" agreement under which the entire UK will stay in the EU customs union until the final trade agreement between the UK and the EU is reached. Several cabinet ministers are dissatisfied with what they are afraid of being spoken in a retreat agreement that fails to show a clear way out of the background. They want to see full legal advice and want guarantees that the EU can not prevent one of the EU's release of the EU system so that the UK can hit its own trade disputes.
Michael Gove, Sayid Javid and Jeremy Hunt are concerned, and others, like Penny Mordaunt, Esther McVey and Andrea Leads, are considering their positions.
Downing Street is concerned not only because of more ministerial and governmental resignations, but is concerned that if an agreement is not made within the next two weeks, the entire timetable for pushing the bill to withdraw parliament in front of the parliament before March 29 next year will become too tightly bound to manage.
The agreement must also meet 10 MPs who support May's government. Syndicalists are deeply suspicious that what is being cooked to create a hard boundary in the Irish Sea that has been promised will never be based on the result of Brexit and that they can not accept because it would basically separate Northern Ireland from the rest of Britain.
Tory Bulls know that parliamentary votes on the Brexit agreement will be too close to calling. As a result, they courted on the support of workers' representatives in left-wing constituencies, which they think could support a decent job, not only because their constituents are completely saturated by waiting for Brexit for which they voted more than two years ago.
Brexit shares the work undoubtedly, deeply like Tories. In addition to a few in-breed workers such as Kate Hoey and Graham Stringer, who looks certain to return the Mayan deal to get Britain, because that's what they wanted for a long time, there are a dozen or so others who might be tempted to defy themselves to their own party party and to support the prime minister.
One of them was Gareth Snell, deputy representative of Stoke-on-Trent Central, who voted at 70:30 to leave. On Friday, in the center of his constituency, the dominant position of voters was that the MPs should hurry up with Brexit.
On Friday, he was sitting in a pottery warehouse in downtown Stoke, Paul Walker, a cleaner, said he was happy with the talk of delays and other referendums because the country had huge immigration problems that Brexit could help solve. "Just continue with that," he said. "If we have one more voice, it will be a mess. Of all the promises to break, this would be the biggest of all."
Snell will wait to see the offer, but says it is not necessary to vote for what has been said. "If the prime minister comes back with a customs agreement that protects production and puts us in a decent job, I think we should look at it because I'm not sure we'll get a better job by March 29 next year."
In yet another sign of the division of labor, Jeremy Corbyn, who was a longtime critic of the European Union, experienced severe criticism of the remains in his party after he appeared to close the possibility of a second referendum that could hold the UK in the EU. Whether it could yesterday to agree with Johnson's call to a new referendum, backed by many of his remaining MPs, Corbyn said, "Actually, no, a referendum happened." The question now has to be how to bring people together, gather people about the principles of our economy, our rights and this we do not turn a country into a kind of tax shelter at sea on lines that Donald Trump would want us to do. "
Since more than two years of Brexit's negotiations around the end, Tories, Work and the Earth are more hopelessly divided, and in many cases more insecure than ever.
Returning to Orpington, Jo Johnson's constituent members noted and thought about their attorney's stand. Frances, 72, says: "I do not know what I mean anymore, my husband and I and we have voted to leave, because we do not want to rule Brussels, and I am firmly against the European army, but I heard Jo Johnson resign over to Brexit it seems to me that it could come to another referendum because there is no other way of solving things Theresa May is determined to push everything that he wants to do regardless of it If we have another referendum, I'm not sure what to vote for this time The situation is so unstable and I just want my kids and grandchildren to have what's best for them.
