Boris Johnson’s plan for a Brexit deal will be delivered to Brussels tomorrow with a message to his EU counterparts that there will be no delay beyond the October 31 deadline.
The Prime Minister will state this during his speech at the Conservative Party Conference to say “we can, we must and we will” get Brexit done because voters feel they are being “taken for fools” by Westminster’s politicians.
British Ministers have made it clear to EU counterparts that the legal documents that will be presented to the European Union are a final offer and unless Brussels is prepared to engage talks will cease until after Brexit.
The Prime Minister will repeat his stance to the October 31 date despite legislation aimed at preventing him from taking the UK out of the EU without a deal unless he has the consent of Parliament.
In his speech in Manchester, the Prime Minister is likely to say: “Voters are desperate for us to focus on other UK priorities that is what UK people want, what leavers want, what remainers want, what the whole world wants us to which is to move on.
This will be Boris’s first conservative party speech as Prime Minister and it’s going to be strong one aimed at the EU.
