British Prime Minister Boris Johnson wants a meeting tomorrow with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Emmanuel Macron and EU President Jean-Claude Juncker. This in an effort to get their support for his Brexit deal, writes The Sunday Times.
The prime minister offers the three European leaders the option of helping him with a new deal or agreeing to a friendly version of a no-deal brexit on October 31, the newspaper writes based on a source familiar with the conversations that have been made lined.
Labor opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn tells Sky News that it is unlikely that he will support a new deal between Johnson and the EU. He particularly sees bears on the road when it comes to resolving the issue of Ireland. The island will in part remain a member of the EU, while the north will exit with the rest of the United Kingdom.
“If the new deal creates a border through the Irish Sea instead of the Irish border itself, I anticipate problems,” said Corbyn.
