      EU insists for more concessions by the UK to agree on Brexit deal

Johnson claims he wants to strike an exit deal at an EU summit on Thursday and Friday to allow an orderly departure on 31 October but if an agreement is not possible he will lead the UK out of the Union without a deal, although parliament has passed a law saying he cannot do so.
