English Parliamentarians are preparing legal actions to UK's Prime Minister Boris Johnson in case he refuses to ask for Brexit's delay, as BBC informs. 

"MPs have lined up a legal team and are willing to go to court to enforce the law to avoid no deal, if necessary," the message reads.

The legislation demanding from Boris Johnson to seek a delay of the British exit from the EU to avoid a no-deal Brexit should be approved by the Queen. 

But Johnson said he would "rather be dead in a ditch" than ask the EU to delay Brexit beyond 31 October.

The PM said he would be prepared to leave the EU without a deal, but Labour party representatives say stopping a no-deal Brexit is their priority.
