BORIS Johnson is set to sign an act to repeal EU law in days and FINALLY free us from Brussels control.
Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay has been ordered by the PM to sign a “commencement order” that will cement his “do or die” pledge to leave the bloc by October 31.
Brexiteers have claimed the move would be “totemic” and lay out Boris’ Brexit position in “black and white”, the Times reports.
The no nonsense approach by Johnson is in stark contrast to Theresa May who enraged Euroscpetic MPs by delaying Brexit as much as possible.
She refused to make the order by the original March 29 deadline and instead pushing it to Halloween.
Steve Baker, chair of European Research Group, said: “It is absolutely totemic. It shows a transformation in the approach, that Boris Johnson is willing to leave on a fixed date with no question of extension.
“It’s the do-or-die pledge in black and white. It’s not merely symbolic. Once it’s signed that’s it, the UK is leaving.”
Boris’ Brexit plan is said to have enraged Tory rebels, frustrated because they can’t legally stop the order being signed.
Tory Remainer Dominic Grieve is set to challenge the order by reversing it retrospectively, Guido Fawkes reports.
TORY CIVIL WAR
BoJo’s message to Brussels comes as a fresh civil erupts among the Conservatives after rebels vowed to work with Jeremy Corbyn to stop No Deal.
Eurosceptic Tories were outraged after Remainers including Dominic Grieve, Oliver Letwin and Caroline Spelman – along with independent Nick Boles – wrote to the Labour boss yesterday.
The letter said they had a “common priority” to work together to “prevent No Deal Brexit” and they welcomed his invite.
And they added: “We would be happy to meet with you as well as colleagues from other opposition parties whenever convenient in the weeks before Parliament returns.”

But they insisted they wanted to “discuss the different ways that this might be achieved” – in a hint they wouldn’t back him to be PM if it came down to it.
The letter was the most positive reaction to Mr Corbyn’s call, which was rejected by all sides of the political spectrum.
But Tories reacted with fury at the idea that their own side was talking to the Opposition at all.
Iain Duncan Smith told The Sun: “It’s contemptible than anyone would talk to an anti Semitic Marxist about possibly forming a government.”
His plot to take power as a caretaker PM to delay Brexit again and call a fresh election has been slapped down by most of the opposition MPs – who said they will refuse to work with him.
The Liberal Democrats, Greens, SNP and Plaid all agreed they wanted to work together to stop a No Deal Brexit, but poured cold water on his demands to be installed in No10 if Boris Johnson is brought down.
New Lib Dem boss Jo Swinson said this morning that he “doesn’t command support right across the House of Commons, and he has not been much use, frankly, on the issue of Brexit”.
