Boris will make every person in his Cabinet sign up to promise to leave EU by October 31 – or they’ll be sacked


BORIS Johnson will make everyone in his Cabinet promise to commit to leave the EU by October 31 – or they’ll be sacked.

The frontrunner to become Tory leader says he will expect everyone in his top team to agree with his policy to leave, deal or no deal.

That could rule out some Tories from serving in his Cabinet if he gets into No10.

He said in an interview with ConservativeHome this morning: “I want obviously to have a broad range of talent in my Government, the Government that I will lead, but clearly people must be reconciled to the very, very, very small possibility, and I stress it will be a very, very small possibility, that we would have to leave on those terms.

“I don’t think it will happen but they would have to be reconciled to it.”

Greg Clark, Amber Rudd and David Gauke have all been vocal in their opposition to leaving without a deal.

Boris’ rival Mr Hunt has said he will only leave without a deal “with a heavy heart”.

A fresh poll of Tories this morning showed Boris is on for a landslide win.

He’s got he support of 65 per cent of members, compared to Hunt who as 30 per cent.

Last night Boris said the chances of leaving without a deal were “a million to one” but he was still committed to it if it’s the only way to deliver Brexit.

He vowed: “We are going to take this country out of the EU by October 31. That is what we are going to do.

“We are facing an existential threat.

“We all need to get this thing done and we need to move forward. I think [MPs] will want to get Brexit over the line on October 31 and move forward.”
