John Springford, Deputy Director of the Centre for European Reform think-tank, said a deal appears less likely now after Johnson lost dozens of lawmakers and because the party which props up the government, Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist Party, will not accept the backstop. “The general sense of proroguing parliament makes Johnson seem an unpredictable actor,” Springford added.

“My suspicion is the EU would grant an extension,” Springford said.

But he stated it would only be allowed for an election after October 31.
