UK’s Prime Minister, Boris Johnson has said he has no plans of delaying UK’s exit from the European Union beyond October 2019, stating that he’d “rather be dead in a ditch” than do that.
Johnson made this known while briefing journalists, following his speech in the presence of police recruits in West Yorkshire where he said, “I’d rather be dead in a ditch” than ask the EU for a Brexit delay.
“We must come out of the EU on October 31,” the Conservative leader said, just hours after suffering a fresh blow with the resignation of his brother from government.
The speech, however, came to an end following the collapse of a police cadet standing behind him.
Johnson began work as the Prime Minister in July with promises to deliver Brexit in all circumstances.
