Boris Johnson Rules Out Any New Brexit Extension

Reuters reports Boris Johnson, the favorite to become next prime minister, categorically ruled out on Tuesday any new extension to the date of Britain’s departure from the European Union. He said he would not rest until Brexit happened on Oct. 31.
Asked if he would categorically rule out another extension, Johnson said: “Yes, because it would be up to the prime minister of the day – I hope myself – to decide under the current terms of the extension that we have to apply for such an extension.
