UK PM Johnson says UK will leave EU by January 31 at the latest

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Friday that Britain would leave the European Union by January 31 at the latest if his Conservative Party win a majority in the election in two weeks time.

He also repeated his message that he saw no reason why Britain would need to extend the transition period after Brexit beyond the end of next year.

Asked if he would rather be prime minister or have Britain leave the EU, he replied: I would rather get us out of the EU. I can tell you that.
