Boris Johnson: the UK will be ready to leave the EU on October 31

Britain would be prepared to withdraw from the European Union on October 31 with agreement on the terms “Brexit” or not. This was in an interview published in the Sunday Telegraph newspaper said the leader of the election race for the posts of a leader of the Conservative Party and Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Boris Johnson.

“We were pretty much ready on March 29. And we will be ready by October 31. And it is very important that our partners understand this. They have to look into our eyes and think, “Oh my God, these Brits are really going to leave. And they are going to leave on these terms,” he said.

“Everyone who says they can not accept the idea of Brexit without a deal, in fact, mean that they do not want to leave at all. To be honest, I think there are some people who really want to leave, but they also fear the “Brexit” option with no deal, however, I think their fears are exaggerated,” he added.

The UK was due to leave the EU on March 29, 2019, two years after giving written notice of withdrawal. However, members of the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom three times rejected the draft agreement on the terms of “Brexit,” which Prime Minister Theresa May reached during negotiations with European leaders. As a result, the EU agreed to postpone “Brexit” date first to April-May, then — on October 31.
