WAKEFIELD (ENGLAND), Sep. 5 (Reuters / EP) –
The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Boris Johnson, said on Thursday that, before asking the European Union for a new extension of Brexit, he would rather “be dead in a ditch.”
During an event held at a police station in the English town of Wakefield, journalists asked him if he can promise the British people that he will not go to Brussels to ask for another postponement of Brexit. “Yes, I can. I would rather be dead before,” he replied.
Johnson has insisted that once again delaying UK's exit from the EU “absolutely nothing will be achieved.” “What is the objective of getting another delay?”
The House of Commons on Tuesday approved a law by a large majority that forces the government to avoid Brexit without agreement and at the same time rejected Johnson's proposal to hold early elections on October 15 to resolve the political crisis.
Johnson, who has lost control of Parliament over the growing number of rebel 'tories', his brother Jo included, intends to present a new motion for deputies to speak again on Monday about the electoral advance.
By becoming 'premier', last July, Johnson promised the British that on October 31 there would be Brexit, whether there was an agreement with the EU or not, which puts the scenario of a chaotic exit closer and closer. .
