I hope they will see fit to compromise." "I want a deal, we are ready to work with our friends and partners to get a deal but if you want a good deal for the UK you must simultaneously get ready to come out without one," Johnson said.

When asked what his visit later this week to Berlin and Paris would achieve, Johnson said: “I hope that they will compromise – they have seen that the UK parliament has three times rejected the Withdrawal Agreement, the backstop just doesn’t work, it is not democratic.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Monday called on Germany and France to compromise on Brexit, cautioning that the United Kingdom would be ready to leave the European Union without a deal on Oct. 31 if necessary. “We will be ready to come out on Oct. 31 – deal or no deal,” Johnson told reporters. “Of course, our friends and partners on the other side of the Channel are showing a little bit of reluctance to change their position – that’s fine – I am confident that they will.”
