British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Friday that Britain would leave the European Union by Jan. 31 if his Conservative Party win a majority in the election in two weeks time.
If we can get a working majority then we will come on Jan. 31 at the absolute latest,” Johnson told LBC radio.
He also repeated his message that he saw no reason why Britain would need to extend the transition period after Brexit beyond the end of 2020.
Asked if he would rather be prime minister or have Britain leave the EU, he replied: “I would rather get us out of the EU. I can tell you that.”
Similarly, Johnson said that he would not say how many children he had, saying that he would not “put them on the pitch” ahead of the Dec. 12 election.
“I love my children very much, but they are not standing at this election, and I am not, therefore, going to comment,” said Johnson, whose colorful love life has attracted tabloid attention in the past.
