British PM sends unsigned letter to EU for Brexit delay
October 20, 2019

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has sent a letter to the European Union to request a Brexit delay without his signature.

According to media reports, British Prime Minister was required by law to ask the EU for an extension to the 31 October deadline after losing a Parliament vote. Boris Johnson's request was accompanied by a second signed letter, which says he believes that a delay would be a mistake.

British lawmakers had voted 322 to 306 in favour for a key amendment to force Prime Minister Johnson to seek another Brexit delay deadline from the European Union.

The prime minister previously said he would "rather be dead in a ditch" than ask the EU to delay Brexit.
