According to the Prime Minister, he will do everything for Britain to withdraw from the European Union on October 31.
Earlier, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson offered the EU a plan to revise the Brexit agreement in part of Northern Ireland. Johnson drew attention to the government’s position on back-stop in the protocol on Ireland and Northern Ireland. He called this mechanism unviable and anti-democratic, and proposed to abolish it. Instead, Johnson developed other rules for the Northern Ireland border after Brexit.
However, earlier it was reported that British parliamentarians are preparing lawsuits in case Prime Minister Boris Johnson refuses to ask Brussels to delay Brexit.
