Report informs citing TASS that, according to him, if Brussels rejects this initiative, the UK will leave the EU on October 31 without a deal on the terms of the "divorce" of the parties.
'We're not going to go back and renegotiate. What we're going to do is we will put a different offer down and say to them: 'Look - we want to get to free trade. Now we can either start talking about that now if you are serious and you want to have a process that means we don't end up with tariffs etc after the 31st - if that's what you want, the EU, then we are prepared to talk. But if all you are interested in doing is saying: 'All you can have is this deal', then the answer is: we will be prepared to leave on the 31st."
