Prime Minister Boris Johnson is battling to take Britain out of the European Union, with or without a deal, but is now deadlocked with his MPs, who have passed a law that could force him to extend the current October 31 Brexit deadline.

As he navigates the Brexit storm, Johnson was due to suspend parliament for over a month from Monday after it votes on his latest demand for a snap election, a vote that is likely to go against him.

Brexit, the United Kingdom's most significant geopolitical move in decades, remains in question more than three years since the 2016 referendum, with possible outcomes ranging from a no-deal exit to abandoning the whole endeavour.

Lawmakers who are anxious about the economic fallout from a no-deal Brexit have voted to drive Johnson to find a hold off to stay away from leaving without the need of a offer, but he has reported that he will not countenance an extension.

According to the text, Boris Johnson will have until mid-October to try to get a new agreement with the European Union, or request an extension on the scheduled departure the 31st of that month. "There is a way of getting a deal but it will require a lot of hard work".

The decision, confirmed on Monday by a spokesman for the office of Prime Minister Boris Johnson, unleashed a wave of criticism in the House of Commons, whose last activity before closing its doors for five weeks will be to vote a motion presented by the Executive to advance elections.

Two applications had been made for emergency Parliamentary debates on Monday, one about the rule of law and the other to press for the disclosure of internal communications between a group of Johnson aides regarding the suspension of Parliament as well as documents relating to the government's plan for a no-deal Brexit since July 23, BBC News reported.

Johnson has said he will not seek a delay.

Ireland told Johnson on Monday that he must make specific proposals on the future of the Irish border if there is to be any hope of averting a no-deal Brexit, saying Dublin can not rely on simple promises.

The blunt remarks by Mr. Varadkar indicate the difficulty of Mr. Johnson's gamble of using the threat of a no-deal exit to convince Germany and France that they must rewrite an exit agreement struck last November.
