Boris Johnson reportedly will challenge queen to fire him

"I say to our European friends: grasp the opportunity our new proposal provides".

Describing his blueprint for an agreement as a "practical compromise that gives ground where necessary", Mr Johnson said it represents the United Kingdom "jumping to the island in the middle of the river".

The United Kingdom had to leave the European alliance on March 31, after 52 percent of Britons voted in favor of Brexit in the 2016 referendum, but the House of Commons refusal to support the withdrawal treaty signed by the then Prime Minister Theresa May forced to postpone the departure, first for last April, and then for the last day of October.

Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar, a key player in the equation as an European Union member-country bordering the United Kingdom, said he believed a deal was possible but said current proposals did not go far enough.

Yet if he bends on them, he risks losing tenuous support in the United Kingdom parliament to maybe pass a Brexit deal, reliant on the ten DUP MPs and hard-core Brexit MPs in his Conservative Party.

"He claimed MPs from "every wing of the Conservative Party", Northern Ireland" s Democratic Unionist Party and from Labour have said "our proposed deal looks like one they can get behind".

Barclay hinted that Britain could be willing to consider alternatives to the role of Northern Irish assembly to break the deadlock.

"There will be no more dither or delay".

"This is a pre-election party-political broadcast from the Prime Minister, and the truth is that for all of the talk about getting Brexit done, we are further away from achieving a deal than we were two months ago when he became prime minister", the MP added.

"We will evaluate next Friday whether it's been possible to bring the positions closer".

After hours-long talks in Brussels on Friday failed to move the dial, a United Kingdom spokesman said: "We want a deal and talks continue on Monday on the basis of our offer".

"I could support a deal".

Johnson would not step aside if his Brexit proposals were rejected by the European Union, and even if members of the U.K. Parliament declare no confidence in his government and agree to a caretaker prime minister to replace him, according to the report.

In court documents, the government has said the Prime Minister will request a delay as the law requires, despite his public and Parliamentary statements.

- The Sunday Telegraph reported Mr Johnson could veto the EU's seven-year budget under a series of proposals being discussed by ministers to "sabotage" the bloc's structures if Brussels refuses to agree a new deal or allow the United Kingdom to crash out without one. Rutte writes on Twitter that he still has many questions about Johnson's proposal, after they had spoken to each other by telephone.

They reportedly balked at Britain's request to keep initial discussions on the proposals going through the weekend, and they will resume Monday, with time running out ahead of the summit.

If thwarted, Mr Johnson's best bet may lie with early elections.

It raises the possibility that Mr Johnson could give evidence in the court case in an attempt to persuade judges in person against forcing him to ask the European Union for a Brexit delay.
