I think that ‘October 31 comes Hell or Rising WaterIt’s a fake deadline, because it will likely lead us to a general election before we do Brexit, and that would hand the keys to Jeremy Corbyn and then we wouldn’t have Brexit at all.
But, in my case, how will I deal with this: I think we will know very soon before October 31 whether there is a deal that needs to be struck on the basis that you said. If there is no agreement, and if there is no agreement still on the table, I was very clear: I will leave the European Union without an agreement.
But I wouldn’t do it if there was the prospect of a better deal, and if I did, it would be with a heavy heart because businesses across the country would face a lot of devastation. I think it would be a very bad thing for the federation, with Scotland being on the weekend … so I would have done that though. But as a last resort.
