The President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Junker, has said that no further extensions to article 50 should be granted by the European Union, that means the UK will leave the EU on the 31st, deal or no deal.
This news comes as the United Kingdom Parliament is failing to back the deal outlined by Boris Johnson.
The United Kingdom was meant to leave the EU months ago, but Theresa Mays surrender deal was blocked by Parliament. Team Boris were able to scrap the backstop arrangement, which would have risked the UK being stuck in the EU’s customs union.
The UK has now agreed a deal with the European Union. It’s now up to the United Kingdom Parliament whether they pass it or not.
Team Boris has said that the United Kingdom will leave the European Union, no matter what, come the 31st of October. It’s hoped that the UK Parliament will see sense and back the withdrawal arrangement agreed by Boris.
