Johnson: We will get Brexit done in January

Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Wednesday (6 November) promised to take Britain out of the European Union in January, speaking at a campaign rally he used to frame the country’s 12 December general election as the most important in a generation.

“It great to see so many of you here … at the beginning of what I think is the most important election our country has faced for a generation,” he told the rally in the central English city of Birmingham.

He pledged that if re-elected he would begin passing his Brexit deal through parliament straight away “so we get Brexit done in January and we put the uncertainty behind us.”
