BREXIT deal reached, deadline stays

BBC has reported that a Brexit deal has been agreed between the UK and EU before a meeting of European leaders in Brussels.

Boris Johnson and Jean-Claude Juncker called it a “fair” outcome, however, Mr. Juncker said there was no need to extend the Brexit deadline, essentially maintaining the deadline to the end of the month.

He said: “We have a deal so why should we have a prolongation.”

The BBC says that this will be a boost for Mr. Johnson, but will get the deal through Parliament on Saturday, is the question, with the DUP opposing it.

Mr Johnson urged MPs to “come together” and “get this excellent deal over the line”.

He added: “Now is the moment for us to get Brexit done and then together work on building our future partnership, which I think can be incredibly positive both for the UK and for the EU.”
