UK PM Johnson, Urging Compromise,  Makes Final Offer to Break Brexit Deadlock

MANCHESTER - Prime Minister Boris Johnson urged the European Union on Wednesday to compromise after Britain came up with its final offer to try to secure a Brexit deal, promising he would not be deterred from leaving on Oct. 31. In his closing speech at the Conservative Party’s annual conference, Johnson stuck to his hard line on Brexit, giving the party faithful some of the first, albeit vague, details of what he described as his “constructive and reasonable proposals”.
With his firm Brexit deadline moving ever closer, his aides said the proposals, aimed at unlocking talks with Brussels, were his final gambit to try to break the Brexit deadlock and find a path to a smooth departure from the EU.
But a senior British official said if Brussels did not engage, Britain would be ready to leave on Oct. 31 without a deal - an exit some businesses say could tip the world’s fifth largest economy into recession, disrupt trade and deter investment.
“We are coming out of the EU on October 31, come what may,” Johnson told party members, after expressing “love” for Europe in a speech which focused mostly on domestic issues such as health, the economy and crime. (Reuters)
