Britain unveils new Brexit plan

(Manchester) – Prime Minister Boris Johnson published his “final” Brexit proposals, warning EU leaders that Britain will walk out without a deal on October 31 if they do not accept his terms.

Officials in Brussels and UK opponents of Brexit fear economic chaos if Britain ends its 46-year membership of the European Union without a formal divorce agreement.

Johnson had earlier warned that this was his “final” offer. But his complex new solution met an initially cool response from Brussels.

A senior MEP said the European Parliament´s initial reaction to it was “not positive at all”.

Johnson said the sides had until October 11 to hammer out the main outlines of a compromise so it could be included on the agenda of a EU leaders´ summit in Brussels on October 17-18.

“Let us be in no doubt… what the alternative is — the alternative is no deal,” Johnson told his Conservative party conference in Manchester.
