The most interesting exchange is when Boris promises to a Eurosceptic voter that: “If I get in, we’ll come out deal or No Deal on October 31st. We’ll do that.”

Boris has made this pledge before, telling a conference in Switzerland: “We will leave the EU on October 31st, Deal or No Deal.”

He also insisted that: “The way to get a good deal is to prepare for a No Deal.”

If he wins the contest and becomes Prime Minister would he actually deliver Brexit by the 31st October deadline or is this Theresa May’s 29th March all over again?
