LONDON: Prime Minister Boris Johnson is sticking to his Brexit plan and will not seek a delay to Britain's departure from the EU at a summit next month,After work and pensions minister Amber Rudd's shock resignation late on Saturday over Johnson's Brexit policy, two ministers said the prime minister was determined to"keep to the plan" to leave the European Union by Oct 31 with or without an agreement.

On Sunday, Rudd denied she was accusing the government of lying over its efforts to negotiate a Brexit deal, saying she was just reporting what she had seen."I am saying that 80 to 90 per cent of the work that I can see going on on the EU relationship is about preparation for no deal. It's about disproportion," she told the BBC's Andrew Marr show.

"I do also think that on some of these key issues, people need to understand, and the voters get it, that we've got to keep to the plan," Raab told Sky News. Queen Elizabeth is expected to sign it into law on Monday, but Johnson says he would rather be"dead in a ditch" than request such an extension - something that opposition parties say could mean seeing the British prime minister breaking the law.
