>Britain suspends parliament
英女王已批准暂停议会

Queen Elizabeth II announced Wednesday she has given her consent to the request of Prime Minister Boris Johnson to suspend the British Parliament.
英国女王伊丽莎白二世28日宣布已同意首相鲍里斯·约翰逊提出的暂停议会活动的请求。

The prime minister met with the Queen on Wednesday morning to request that she shuts down Parliament on Sept 9, just days after members return from their summer break, until Oct 14, just two weeks before the Brexit deadline on Oct 31.
约翰逊28日上午同女王见面,请求女王宣布议会从9月9日起休会,那时议员们刚结束暑假返岗没几天,而休会将一直持续至10月14日,那时距脱欧截止日期10月31日仅剩两周。

The move appeared designed to limit the opportunity for Members of Parliament to press ahead with their plans to prevent Johnson from leaving the European Union on Oct 31 without a deal.
此举的目的似乎是让议员们不再有机会通过法案来阻止约翰逊在10月31日带领英国以无协议的方式脱欧。
