State agencies need to "wrap their arms around" problem families to prevent young people getting sucked into crime, Boris Johnson has said as he announced a £100 million investment package to boost security in prisons.

Johnson has promised to get Britain out of the European Union by 31st October regardless of whether he manages to renegotiate his predecessor's exit deal with Brussels, and the survey suggests 54 percent of voters agree with the notion the premier "needs to deliver Brexit by any means, including suspending parliament, in order to prevent MPs from stopping it".

"In my experience, the Americans are very tough negotiators indeed and we will do a great deal with them and it will open up opportunities for businesses, particularly services companies in the U.S", Johnson said. September 9 is shaping up to be the date when those rebels could act, the person said.

"There's been a whole series of these announcements and Boris doesn't quite explain how he would pay for it", Labour's home affairs spokeswoman, Diane Abbott, told BBC radio on Monday.

More than 70 MPs and Peers have joined forces to call on the courts to rule that suspending Westminster to allow the United Kingdom to leave without a deal would be "unlawful and unconstitutional".

Work and pensions secretary Amber Rudd has been urged to start telling the truth on a no-deal Brexit again after she denied she was a "sell out" for joining Boris Johnson's cabinet.


In their petition, the group said the House of Commons had already acknowledged that even a short prorogation, "if suitably timed, would permanently deprive Westminster Parliament of its voice on this most significant of political issues with irreversible consequences".

Under the Fixed Term Parliaments Act, MPs will have 14 days to try to form an alternative Government in the event of Mr Johnson losing a vote of no confidence, otherwise a general election will be triggered. "This government does. We're very happy about it".

The new leader of the Liberal Democrat party, which supports Remain, visited the Border region yesterday and called on Mr Johnson to do likewise.

Johnson is prepared to meet with leaders face-to-face to lay out his position, but no negotiation is really possible until the bloc retreats from its red line on re-opening the withdrawal agreement, the person familiar with the matter said.

The Downing Street source predicts that if a new deal is to be reached, it will be "at the last minute", possibly as late as 17 October, when European Union leaders are due to meet for a scheduled summit in Brussels.

There's no indication Johnson is preparing to back down, and there are growing signs that his government is preparing for an early general election.
