British PM Johnson says he will not contemplate resigning

Johnson is pushing for an election on October 15, two weeks before the United Kingdom is due to leave the EU, though opposition parties say they want a no-deal Brexit ruled out before they will agree to an election date.

In a sign of how far Brexit has distorted British politics, Johnson's Conservatives expelled 21 rebels on Tuesday (September 3) - including the grandson of Britain's World War Two leader Winston Churchill and two former finance ministers - for seeking to block any exit from the European Union without a deal.

On Friday, Johnson said the rebels expulsion "grieved me deeply." "These are friends of mine.

I've worked with them for many years.

But we have to get Brexit done and we were being very clear about the risks we're running now in snarling up the process of leaving the EU in parliament," he said.
