Boris Johnson makes ‘do or die’ pledge to leave EU by 31 October

Boris Johnson has insisted that if he’s Prime Minister, Brexit will happen on the 31st of October – come what may, do or die.

As campaigning in the Conservative leadership election stepped up a gear, he challenged his opponent, Jeremy Hunt, to make the same commitment.

Mr Hunt kept up his attacks on Boris Johnson’s character, claiming only he has what it takes to close a deal with Brussels.

We managed to speak to Mr Johnson as he campaigned for the support of the Tory grassroots.
