İrem UZUN -TDO- On Wednesday, Prime Minister Boris Johnson will unveil his final Brexit offer to the European Union and make clear that if Brussels does not engage with the proposal, Britain will not negotiate further and will leave on Oct. 31.
In his speech to members of the Conservative party, the embattled prime minister will outline what he will call a “fair and reasonable compromise,” which Downing Street says has been drawn up after 70 hours of discussions with other EU member states. Moreover, he will insist that if the EU countries fail to engage with his proposals, he will press ahead with a no-deal Brexit at the end of October.
A senior No.10 official said that the government is either going to be negotiating a new deal or working on no deal, nobody will work on delay.“We will keep fighting to respect the biggest democratic vote in British history. The EU is obliged by EU law only to negotiate with member state governments, they cannot negotiate with parliament, and this government will not negotiate delay”.
According to the Reuters, sources in Brussels suggested that chief negotiator Michel Barnier would give short shrift to any offer that breached the negotiating mandate agreed by the remaining 27 EU states.
