British PM set to defy law to Brexit

Added On September 8, 2019

 British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has insisted he "will not" ask the European Union to delay Brexit again, even if it's required by law.

 
Boris Johnson made the remarks on Friday after lawmakers passed a bill to block a no-deal Brexit.
 
He was quoted as saying that he was only bound "in theory" by that bill.
It now only needs royal assent to become legislation. 
 
The new law will require Boris Johnson to delay Britain's departure from the EU if no deal is in place.
 
There was widespread speculation among UK political commentators on Friday about what Johnson would do if he was forced to comply with the bill when he meets the EU Council next month.
