PM's office says Brexit will happen on October 31, 'no ifs or buts'
A bill demanding that Prime Minister Boris Johnson delay Britain’s withdrawal from the EU on Oct. 31 if he cannot get a divorce deal became law on Monday but his office insisted that Brexit would happen by that date, “no ifs and buts”.
Parliament was also likely to reject Johnson’s call on Monday for a snap general election, which he is seeking in order to break a deadlock over Brexit that has intensified since he took office in July pledging to get on with the departure.
“The prime minister is very clear that he will take this country out of the EU on October 31st no ifs or buts, he will not sanction any more pointless delays,” Johnson’s office said after the bill became law.
