A Conservative Minister has reportedly made the astonishing revelation that the Prime Minister Boris Johnson “will resign” rather than be forced by Parliament to go to Brussels and sign a Brexit extension.

According to The S*n’s Deputy Political Editor, Steve Hawkes, an anonymous Tory Minister has revealed to The Times that:

Boris Johnson WILL resign rather than go to Brussels for an extension.

The comments are entirely in line with what Mr Johnson has reportedly said in private – having previously commented on his precarious position that “extension means extinction“.

Furthermore, Tory MP Andrew Bridgen – an arch Brexiteer who supports a No Deal Brexit – stated on RTE Radio this morning that:

“I pretty much guarantee you one thing: Boris Johnson would rather resign as Prime Minister than be forced to go against his word and ask for an extension”

Hilary Benn’s bill to force the PM to seek a Brexit extension looks increasingly likely to become law on Monday, after an attempted filibuster by the Tories was ditched.

If Johnson was to resign before 31st Octyober, he would become the shortest serving Prime Minister in UK history.

The current shortest serving PM was George Canning, who served in office for just 118 days before his untimely death from pneumonia in August 1827.

Boris Johnson has currently racked up just 42 days as Prime Minister.

Evolve needs your help more than ever!

We rely on the generosity of our readers to help fund the majority of our work - but we need a little more to make ends meet and enable us to grow.

If we can reach 1,000 regular subscribers, we will become entirely financially sustainable - and we'll also have a little extra so we can build upwards and outwards to make our work have an even bigger impact.

In the last month alone, our work on the Environment Bill has helped force a change in the law for the better. And, since Evolve was founded, our uniquely viral style of journalism has repeatedly put the establishment on the back foot and helped force genuinely positive progression.

But we want to do far more - and we need your help to do it.

The best way you can help us is by becoming a Monthly or Annual subscriber. This kind of regular income allows us to better plan for the future - firstly so we can pay the bills, and then so we can set aside funds and time to work on extra projects.

However, if you can't commit to a regular payment, one-off donations - no matter how small - also make a big difference to us, and we genuinely make the most of every single penny.

So, if you appreciate the work that Evolve does and you want to see us make an even bigger impact on the world, please think about contributing to our work in whatever way you possibly can.
