The Court of Session in Scotland has been told that Government documents say the Prime Minister will seek an extension from the EU if no EU Withdrawal Agreement is reached by 19 October. Responding to the news, Liberal Democrat spokesperson Ian Jenkins said:

"It seems that Boris Johnson will send letter to EU asking for Brexit delay if no deal agreed - despite insisting October 31 was 'do or die'. But today shows he's prepared to say anything and blame anyone but himself.
"His Brexit gamble is something he is going to regret. All this chaos is his fault."
