The surprise announcement has sparked huge outrage among lawmakers who oppose a no-deal Brexit.

Tom Watson, Deputy Leader of the opposition Labour Party and shadow Culture Secretary, said the move was “an utterly scandalous affront to our democracy.”

Anna Soubry, who left the Conservative Party to join a breakaway cross-party bloc known as the Independent Group for Change, said Britain’s “democracy is under threat.”

Soubry’s colleague from the Change group, Chris Leslie, called Johnson’s latest move an “undemocratic manoeuvre to try and shut down Parliament.”

He tweeted the plan “must be fought every step of the way.”
