“I think that MPs (Members of Parliament) should get on and deliver on what they have promised over and over and over again to the people of this country: they will deliver on the mandate of 2016 and leave the EU on Oct. 31,” Johnson told reporters.
The government has rejected claims it is unwilling to negotiate with the EU and wants talks to fail to allow a no-deal Brexit.
