    Final Countdown? UK, EU Strike Brexit Deal

    The European Union and the United Kingdom have got "a great new deal" on Brexit, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on 17 October. According to the European Commission's chief Brexit negotiator, Michel Barnier, the new Brexit deal is very likely to find support in the EU and be ratified by October 31.

    The deal has yet to be approved by the UK parliament and two UK opposition parties, Labour and the Scottish National Party, have already indicated they would not back the agreement at the vote expected on Saturday.
