The British parliament has officially been suspended for five weeks until the 14th of October.
However, the suspension sparked tense scenes, as lawmakers and parliament staff engaged in pushing and shoving.
This is perhaps one of the longest session in British parliament for decades. But it ended with placard waving lawmakers expressing their displeasure at the five week prorogation of parliament.
For the second time in a week, lawmakers later rejected Johnson’s request to try to break the deadlock through an early national election.
Opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn said the party would not support Johnson’s move to hold one until it was certain a delay to Brexit had been secured.
While the future of Brexit remains uncertain, it was a mixture of despair and relief for some commuters on Tuesday morning following the British government’s decision to suspend Parliament.
Meanwhile Queen Elizabeth II has given royal assent to the so-called no-deal legislation that prevents British Prime Minister Boris Johnson from taking Britain out of the European Union without a deal.
