UK PM JOHNSON Brexit will make UK “the greatest place on earth”, PM Johnson says


British Prime Minister Boris Johnson promised to make the United Kingdom the greatest place on earth by leaving the European Union on October 31.

“Our mission is to deliver Brexit on the 31st of October for the purpose of uniting and re-energizing our great United Kingdom and making this country the greatest place on earth,” Johnson told parliament in his first speech as prime minister.

Britain’s new leader has promised to do a new Brexit deal with the bloc in less than 99 days but has also warned that if EU leaders refused – something he said was a “remote possibility” – then Britain would leave without a deal, “no ifs or buts.”

Johnson’s bet is that the threat of a no-deal Brexit will persuade the EU’s biggest powers – Germany and France – to agree to revise the Withdrawal Deal that his predecessor Theresa May agreed last November but failed three times to get ratified.
