Brexit poll: If Boris fails to get EU deal should he Leave with no deal or extend? | Politics | News

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has promised to take Britain out of the EU in just 35 days, with a “do or die” pledge to leave the bloc with or without a deal on Halloween. But his Brexit plans could be scuppered by Remain MPs who have threatened to vote against any revised deal struck by Mr Johnson and the European Union in the coming weeks. is asking you, our readers, if the Prime Minister fails to secure a deal with the EU should he take the country out of the bloc without a deal or extend the Brexit deadline?

The likelihood of a no deal Brexit is growing yet opposition parties have said they will do everything in their power to stop Britain leaving the EU without a deal.

Mr Johnson was forced to expel rebel MPs after they sided with Opposition groups to block his plans to take Britain out of the EU without a deal.

Tory stalwarts Ken Clarke, Sir Nicholas Soames, Philip Hammond and Sir Oliver Letwin were among those kicked out of the party.

MPs voted by 328 votes to 301 to pass the Benn bill, which forces the prime minister to ask Brussels for a three-month Brexit extension if he cannot get a deal hammered out.

But since coming into office in July, Brexiteer and Tory leader Mr Johnson has claimed the UK will leave the EU on Halloween – with “no if, no buts”.

Mr Johnson was forced back to Westminster on Wednesday, cutting short his visit to the United Nations General Assembly in New York, after the Supreme Court ruled on Tuesday his five-week suspension of Parliament was illegal.

The Government will, however, ask MPs today to agree to a three-day break for the Commons next week while the Tories stage their annual party conference in Manchester.

But amid the angry mood at Westminster, the opposition parties appear unlikely to agree, meaning Mr Johnson could be forced to rearrange his keynote speech due to be held on the final day on Wednesday.

This morning the EU’s chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier said Britain has yet to provide “legal and operational” proposals that could break the impasse over its departure from the bloc.

He said: “We are still ready to work on any new legal and operational proposal from the EU.”

His remarks come as the clock ticks down, with 35 days left to the scheduled departure date.
