Boris Johnson heckled during speech: 'Get back to parliament'

"Absolutely not", Johnson replied, according to the UK Press Association.

The Times, citing unidentified sources, wrote that in return for such concessions Brussels would abandon its insistence on Northern Ireland remaining in a customs union with the EU.

But party leader Arlene Foster said any moves which did make Northern Ireland different from the rest of the United Kingdom would be unacceptable to the party.

The EU's chief negotiator Michel Barnier has also said the United Kingdom government is yet to table concrete plans for ending the impasse over the Irish backstop.

But he is compelled to ask for an extension to the end of January if he fails to convince MPs to back a Withdrawal Agreement or support a no-deal by October 19, after Parliament passed the so-called Benn Act.

He said if Mr Johnson broke the law, it would be a "terrible example to set to the rest of society".

The warning came as the EU's chief negotiator said there is "no reason to be optimistic" that a new agreement can be brokered before the Prime Minister's deadline to ask for a delay.

In a speech in London on Thursday, Mr Bercow compared any attempt to shun the law over the extension with a bank robber excusing their crime by giving their loot to charity.

If the Government comes close to disobeying the Act, the Speaker said that Parliament "would want to cut off such a possibility and do so forcefully".

In his speech, Mr Bercow said: "Not obeying the law must surely be a non-starter".

Mr Johnson joined political and business leaders at the conference, such as Sheffield City Region Mayor Dan Jarvis and Dame Julie Kenny, of Wentworth Woodhouse.

As one local told Mr Johnson "don't let us down", he responded: "We'll get you out, we'll get us out".

They won a case that sent political shockwaves through the United Kingdom and prompted calls for the Government to bring back Parliament, when three senior judges ruled that the PM had acted unlawfully.

The challenge has been lodged at the same Edinburgh court that ruled the Prime Minister's suspension of Parliament was unlawful, and is being led by the same campaigners. "The High Court in England plainly agrees with us but the Supreme Court will have to decide".
