(Reuters) – The European Union is preparing to offer Boris Johnson, the favorite to be Britain’s next prime minister, a no-deal Brexit extension beyond October 31, the Guardian newspaper reported on Friday.
“It will be described as a technical delay to save Boris from political embarrassment but then we will have time to find an agreement,” a senior EU diplomat told the newspaper Johnson could maintain the stance of being on course to leave EU without an agreement while keeping open the option of coming to a deal with the bloc, according to the proposal cited by the Guardian.
Britain is currently due to leave the bloc on October 31.
