Boris Johnson pledges new determination to leave EU by 31 October [View all]

Source: The Guardian

Boris Johnson has launched his Tory leadership campaign by insisting he does not wish to pursue a no-deal Brexit but would prepare “vigorously and seriously” to leave the European Union with no agreement in October, saying the survival of the Conservative party depended on it.

The Tory leadership frontrunner officially launched his campaign on Wednesday by telling the assembled crowd of MPs he believed a new government “with a new mandate, a new optimism, a new determination” could leave the EU with an amended deal.

However, he warned that he was determined to leave the EU by 31 October, whether he had achieved a new deal or not. “Parties have entered a yellow-box junction, unable to move forward or back,” he said.

“Around the country there is a mood of disillusion, even despair at our ability to get things done. The longer it goes on, the worse the risk of serious contamination and a real loss of confidence, because the people of this country deserve better from their leaders.”
