Johnson: Opposition stands in the way of Britain's exit from October

 UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Wednesday that his government was determined to push the country out of the European Union on October 31 despite opposition attempts to delay the Brexit.

Johnson claimed that the opposition "surrender bill", which seeks to block the possibility of a Brexit without a deal, stands in the way of a referendum in 2016 and undermines the government's chances of getting a good deal from the EU. However, he noted that if the opposition bill is passed, UK residents will get an opinion on what they want in the October 15 general election.

Later in the day, lawmakers were expected to vote on a motion to delay the Brexit until January 31 if the deal is not agreed by October 17.

EU warns of high risk of Brexit

The European Commission warned on Wednesday that the risk of the UK leaving the European Union without an agreement is approaching its departure date of 31 October.

“The short time remaining and the political situation in the UK has increased the risk of a UK withdrawal on that date without agreement, the Commission noted and called upon all stakeholders in the EU Member States to intensify preparations for not reaching the Brexit Agreement. However, the Irish pillar is "the only solution that defines the Good Friday Agreement, ensures compliance with international law obligations and maintains the integrity of the domestic market" and cannot be removed from the current withdrawal agreement before an alternative solution is found.
