The Duran Quick Take: Episode 361.

The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris discuss the beginning of snap election campaigning in the UK, post Brexit extension. Nigel Farage and The Brexit party announced it will field 600 plus candidates, smashing any hopes for pro-Brexit election alliance with the Tories.

Boris Johnson apologized to Tory members who voted for him to become party leader for not fulfilling his October 31st Brexit promise.

Johnson said that the delay was a matter of “deep regret”, describing extensions as “painful” because they caused the country uncertainty. Johnson said Brexit would happen on the 31st of October, claiming he would rather be “dead in a ditch” than extend the deadline.

After parliament voted down the timetable for his EU withdrawal bill, Johnson was forced to request an extension until January 31st, 2020."
