Johnson is taking office at A time of political crisis over Brexit as he has promised to seek a new deal with the EU or leave without an agreement at the end of October. However, parliament has rejected May’s deal and refused to countenance a no-deal Brexit, while the EU has consistently said it will not reopen theagreement for further negotiations.
