The Prime Minister announced that he had plans for an election before Christmas, and said in a letter to Labor leader Jeremy Corbyn: “An election on December 12 will allow a new parliament and government to be in place by Christmas. If I win a majority in this election, we will then ratify the big new deal that I have negotiated, get Brexit done in January, and the country will move forward. "
While Johnson was set to leave the EU on October 31, his letter to Corbyn detailed a new course of action.
According to the BBC, he offered "one last chance" to parliament to reconsider its withdrawal law and "get Brexit done" by November 6.
However, this disclosure saw stock traders selling sterling pending further uncertainty.
