UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson says he would rather be dead than delay Brexit next month.

Prime Minister, Boris Johnson has said he'd "rather be dead in a ditch" than delay UK's exit from the European Union beyond October 2019.

He said this in response to a question from a reporter after making a speech in front of police recruits in West Yorkshire where he said, 'we must come out of the EU on October 31,”

The speech was however marred at the end by the collapse of a police cadet standing behind him.

Johnson, who took office in July promising to deliver Brexit in all circumstances, is hoping to regain the initiative with an election before the EU summit in a few weeks.
