Boris Johnson 'won't be deterred' from Brexit on 31 October

Boris Johnson said there was a 'rough shape' of a Brexit deal to be done

On Friday, Prime Minster Boris Johnson said he was "cautiously optimistic" of getting a Brexit deal, but the United Kingdom would leave by the October 31 deadline "whatever happens".

Asked whether he had lied to the Queen about his reasons to suspend sitting, he said: "Absolutely not".

However, he said that despite the current political deadlock in the United Kingdom, he said he still thinks that Britain wants to leave the EU.

It has been claimed the party, which supports the government with a supply and confidence relationship, was willing to move its red lines on Brexit to back a Northern Ireland only trade deal.

The "Operation Yellowhammer" assumptions, prepared six weeks ago just days after Johnson became prime minister, form the basis of government no-deal planning.

The remainers have personally named Mr Johnson in their petition after he repeatedly said that he would refuse to ask for an extension.

His comments come after Scotland's highest civil court ruled that the suspension was "unlawful", overturning a previous ruling made at the same court by Judge Lord Doherty. The campaigners behind the successful Scottish court case said they had begun new legal proceedings that would compel him to do so.

European Union chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier said he did not have "reasons to be optimistic" over getting a deal.

"The British since the very beginning were part-time Europeans".

He said he would've liked for the British parliament to accept the Withdrawal Agreement, adding that "things would be easier" now.

They won a case that sent political shockwaves through the United Kingdom and prompted calls for the Government to bring back Parliament, when three senior judges ruled that the PM had acted unlawfully.

"Indeed, as I say, the High Court in England plainly agrees with us, but the Supreme Court will have to decide", Johnson said.

The visibly rattled prime minister insisted there would be "ample time" for MPs to debate any Brexit deal.

Mr Johnson went on to deny lying to the Queen to secure the five-week prorogation of Parliament.

Mid-October is when Johnson would have to come to Brussels for a summit of European Union leaders with either a new withdrawal agreement or a request for a delay to Brexit, but the British leader insists he would rather be "dead in a ditch" than postpone the October 31 withdrawal.
