London: 

Boris Johnson, the favourite to become the next British prime minister, promised on Monday to take Britain out of the European Union on Oct. 31, with or without a deal.

“My pledge is to come out of the EU at Halloween on 31 October,” Johnson said in an interview with BBC News.

“And the way to get our friends and partners to understand how serious we are is finally, I’m afraid, to abandon the defeatism and negativity that has enfolded us in a great cloud for so long and to prepare confidently and seriously for a WTO or no-deal outcome.”
