UK's Johnson 'sorry' for Brexit delay

  UK's Johnson 'sorry' for Brexit delay Johnson had vowed he would rather be "dead in a ditch" than tolerate another extension to the tortuous Brexit process, which began in 2016 after a knife-edge public referendum. On Sunday he blamed Britain's failure to leave as scheduled on October 31 on parliament passing what he called the "Surrender Act".This demanded that the government ask for, and accept, a delay from the European Union rather than leaving without the deal being ratified.
