🇪🇺🤝🇬🇧 Where there is a will, there is a #deal – we have one! It’s a fair and balanced agreement for the EU and the UK and it is testament to our commitment to find solutions. I recommend that #EUCO endorses this deal. pic.twitter.com/7AfKyCZ6k9

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said: “We have a great new deal that takes back control.”
We’ve got a great new deal that takes back control — now Parliament should get Brexit done on Saturday so we can move on to other priorities like the cost of living, the NHS, violent crime and our environment #GetBrexitDone #TakeBackControl

The deal is now to be passed in Parliament this weekend. The UK is expected to leave the EU by 31st October, but it remains unclear whether a deal could be secured in time.
