Boris Johnson to come with a new version of Brexit

Agency News

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has planned to come with a new version of Brexit plan which will not have checks at Irish border.

Boris Johnson insisted again on Wednesday that Brexit will happen at the end of the month, with or without a deal. Earlier, British businesses appealed for the UK Prime Minister to reach a Brexit deal with the EU, saying companies are not ready to cope with a no-deal exit.

Addressing his party conference in Manchester, the PM said his plan would be a "compromise by the UK", but he hoped the EU would "understand that and compromise in their turn".

The European Commission said they will "examine [the proposals] objectively". The Irish PM said he had not seen the plans but was "not encouraged".

Leo Varadker told the Irish Parliament: "What we are hearing is not encouraging and would not be the basis for agreement."

The UK is set to leave the EU on 31 October.
