Now strongly hinting he will not obey the new law:

The prime minister reportedly wrote to Tory members on Friday evening pledging to break the law that will require him to seek an extension of Article 50. "They just passed a law that would force me to beg Brussels for an extension to the Brexit deadline. This is something I will never do."

Earlier on Friday he said he would not entertain seeking another deadline extension from Brussels, as the incoming law, expected to receive royal assent on Monday, compels him to if no agreement is in place by 19 October. "I will not. I don't want a delay," Johnson said.

The former Conservative leader Iain Duncan Smith encouraged Mr Johnson to break the law, saying he would be seen as a Brexit "martyr" if judges opted to put him jail for breaching parliament's terms.



Things are going to slide, slide in all directions
