PM Johnson: “I will not, I do not want a delay.”

Resistance to a no-deal BREXIT does not sit well with Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who is hinting at ignoring recently passed legislation on talks about a British exit from the EU.

Refusing to enact the just-passed legislation would be a violation of law, a step PM Johnson is apparently willing to take when asked if he would obey the law requiring the UK to ask Brussels for a 3-month extension.

I will not,” PM Johnson said, “I do not want a delay.”

The battle of the law and Mr. Johnson’s no-deal BREXIT hardline stance would then face a potential challenge in the courts, opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn said Saturday.

This is about Parliament versus the people; Boris Johnson is on the side of the people, who voted to leave the EU,” according to Conservative Party MP Iain Duncan Smith, who suggested Mr. Johnson would be a BREXIT “martyr” for breaking law on behalf of the public’s wishes.

A full withdrawal of the UK had been set for 31 October and PM Johnson had reportedly said he would rather be “dead in a ditch” than delay the exit that the people want.

They just passed a law that would force me to beg Brussels for an extension to the BREXIT deadline,” PM Johnson said. “This is something I will never do.”
