UK Announces Fast-Track Visa to Recruit Top Scientists

  • Cabinet Secretary Sir Mark Sedwill

The advisers received an email on Thursday from Boris Johnson's chief of staff Edward Lister saying that they can not take any holiday until after the date that Britain is due to leave the European Union due to "serious work to be done", it was reported yesterday.

The disclosure is likely to be seen as a further attempt to ratchet up pressure on the European Union, driving home the message that the Government is serious about leaving at the end of October, with or without a deal.

Special advisers were emailed by Johnson's senior adviser Edward Lister on Thursday night, saying there was "some confusion about taking holiday" and told none should be booked until 31 October.

On Thursday Johnson failed to confirm whether he would resign as PM if he lost a vote of no-confidence and instead insisted that what MPs should do "is honour the mandate of the people and leave the European Union on 31 October".

"If it comes to no deal, it is not anything I am frightened of", he told Sky News.

"We are today announcing here on Facebook Live that we are changing the rules on immigration so as to make the United Kingdom even more open, even more welcoming to scientists from around the world", Johnson said. "It is something that we can deal with".

"More importantly, I think it would be very damaging to the stability of this country".

Meanwhile, Jeremy Corbyn is urging Britain's top civil servant to rule that the Prime Minister can not push through a no-deal Brexit in the middle of a general election campaign.

Opposition lawmakers plan to try to topple Johnson's Conservative government with a no-confidence vote when Parliament returns from its summer break in September.

Former business secretary and Liberal Democrat MP Sir Vince Cable said his party would seek to form an "emergency administration" fronted by a unifying figure to block no-deal if Boris Johnson was toppled in a no-confidence vote.

Corbyn wrote to civil service chief Mark Sedwill on Thursday seeking a ruling that the government would have to delay Brexit until after an election "to let the electorate decide and the incoming government to take the next steps on the basis of the voters' wishes".
