Johnson to campaign on leaving EU on October 31st no matter what

BORIS Johnson is to centre his election campaign around his do-or-die promise that Britain will leave the EU on October 31st this year. 

The prime minister will travel up and down the country swearing that if the country backs him in December he will take the UK out of Europe by the end of the previous October.

He told a cheering crowd in Kent: “No ifs. No buts. No mealy-mouthed excuses. If you vote for me then that date is set in stone.

“You’ve heard me say I’d rather be dead in a ditch than ask the EU for a Brexit extension. And you’ve seen me mocked for it by sneering Remainers.

“But I repeat to you now, the honest, trusting voters of Britain, that a vote for Johnson on December 12th is a vote to see in November 1st as a proud, independent country.

“Don’t believe the arrogant lies of Corbyn and his communist ilk, who would put a border down the Irish Sea. We leave on October 31st. You have my word.”

Roy Hobbs of Rawtenstall said: “Too late? Nah mate. That’s Project Fear.”
