Brexit clock as deadline looms London British Prime Minister Boris Johnson faces two crucial Brexit votes today that could decide if he still has a reasonable shot at securing his EU divorce by next week’s deadline. The UK is entering a cliffhanger finale to a drama that has divided families and embittered politics ever since voters backed a split from Britain’s 27 EU allies and trading partners in 2016. Johnson has set himself a very high bar by promising that he will get Brexit done — “do or die’” — by the twice-delayed October 31 departure date.
