British Parliament adopted the bill to exit EU on January 31 – with or without the deal

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has substantially amended the Brexit bill for the first session of the new parliament on Thursday. The Guardian has removed all sorts of compromises that Johnson had added to the law at first instance to accommodate opposition parties, writes The Guardian.

In the new version, Johnson has removed the possibility to extend the transition phase. If no trade deal has been concluded with the European Union before the end of 2020, the United Kingdom will leave and there will still be a chaotic break. The United Kingdom leaves the EU on January 31, followed by a transition period of 11 months.

The Brexit Act will be discussed on Friday in the British House of Commons. Johnson wants to lead the law through the House of Commons on January 9.
