Mark Harper, PM candidate to succeed Theresa May, said that he would ask a new deal for Brexit and could not promise the exit on October 31st.
“My preference is to get a new deal. However, no deal must not be ruled out, should we be faced with a choice between no deal and no Brexit,” Harper said.
“This is my plan – one that can be delivered. One thing I’m not promising, as much as I’d like, is that we will leave deal or no deal come October 31st. Why? It’s because I’m being straight with you and it just isn’t possible.”
