Court Rules PM 'Does Not Need' To Extend Brexit — BORIS' BREXIT VICTORY

Boris Johnson to seek Supreme Court ruling on no-deal Brexit Appeal launched after court dismisses legal action against PM

On Tuesday, the government suspended the legislature from Wednesday until October 14, when Queen Elizabeth II will set out the government's legislative domestic agenda.

British Union Jack and EU flags are pictured before the meeting with Britain's Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay and European Union's chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier at the EU Commission headquarters in Brussels, Belgium on September 20, 2019.

In a statement to British media, Downing St. said Merkel had told the prime minister that "a deal is overwhelmingly unlikely" unless Northern Ireland remains in a customs union with the EU - something the United Kingdom says it can't allow.

Merkel said a deal would never be possible unless Northern Ireland stayed in a customs union, the source added. Leaving with a deal would arguably still be a better longer-term tactic for the Conservatives.

European Fee spokeswoman Mina Andreeva mentioned "the EU position has not changed".

An exasperated Tusk tweeted Tuesday morning that Johnson didn't "want a deal".

However, we don't think "no deal" would become inevitable.

"You don't want a deal, you don't want an extension, you don't want to revoke, quo vadis (where are you going)?"

In submissions to the court, the authorities said that Johnson confessed he was not able to send a letter to the European Union requesting a delay and, if an extension was granted, Britain would likewise agree for it.

At current levels, the pound is pricing in a delay to Brexit beyond the October 31 level, and a degree of hope for a last-minute agreement with Brussels, Foley said.

"We'll either leave with no deal on Oct 31 or there will be an election and then we will leave with no deal".

Merkel speaks to Johnson, makes it clear that deal is overwhelmingly unlikely.

"What I say to this court is, "When they go low, the rule of law goes high".

Under the United Kingdom plan there would be customs checks, but Britain says they could be conducted away from the border.

An open border is key to both the regional economy and the peace agreement that ended 30 years of conflict between Catholics and Protestants in Northern Ireland.

The question of how to prevent physical checks on the island of Ireland is at the centre of the Brexit impasse.

In response, the source has said that Johnson told his German counterpart that reaching a deal would be impossible.

Johnson's opponents in Britain accused the government of deliberately undermining the Brexit talks.

But he has also said he will not break a law that forces him to request one if no withdrawal agreement deal has been agreed without explaining that apparent contradiction. The government says those plans will minimize any resulting economic shock.

The government's "no-deal readiness report" shows significant British preparation but also acknowledges its limits.

The British government is preparing for Brexit negotiations to end this week, according to a report in the Spectator magazine.

Boris Johnson risks a backlash from Brexit supporters if he delays the UK's departure from the European Union beyond October.

The figures are significant because they illustrate why Downing Street is so keen to avoid seeking a delay, which Johnson could be forced to do in less than two weeks.

The disagreement points Britain toward a no-deal scenario at the end of October.
