"I'd rather be dead in a ditch than seek Brexit delay"

Johnson pointed out that he would rather be dead in a ditch than do that.
Asked if he could guarantee to the British public he would not, even if bound by law, request from the EU a delay to Brexit beyond October 31, he said: "Yes I can. I’d rather be dead in a ditch".
After a meandering speech in West Yorkshire, the prime minister asked himself what would be the purpose of further delaying Brexit, Reuters reports. He said: "My job is to get us out on 31 October and that is what we're going to do".
MPs have voted for a bill on Tuesday that would prevent a no-deal Brexit on October 31 by forcing Johnson to seek a Brexit extension until January 2020.
