Boris Johnson makes pledge of October 31 Brexit

It was standing room only for the launch of Boris Johnson's Conservative leadership campaign in London.

He's the clear favourite to win the race and become the next British Prime Minister - after Theresa May stood down for failing to get approval for her Brexit deal.

On that, Johnson couldn't have been more clear -- he said it must be delivered by October 31st.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) BORIS JOHNSON, CONSERATIVE LEADERSHIP CONTENDER, SAYING: "We will simply not get a result if we give the impression that we want to go on kicking the can down the road and yet more delay...Delay means defeat, delay means Corbyn, kick the can again and we kick the bucket." As for the idea of leaving the EU without a deal, he said the UK must be prepared for that eventuality (SOUNDBITE) (English) BORIS JOHN SON, CONSERATIVE LEADERSHIP CONTENDER, SAYING: "Let me be clear: I am not aiming for a no-deal outcome.

I don't think that we will end up with any such thing, but it is only responsible to prepare vigorously and seriously for no-deal.

Indeed it is astonishing that anyone could suggest dispensing with that vital tool in the negotiation." On a report he had once dabbled in illegal drugs, Boris had this to say (SOUNDBITE) (English) BORIS JOHNSON, CONSERATIVE LEADERSHIP CONTENDER, SAYING: "I think what most people want us to focus on in this campaign, if I may say so, is what we can do for them." For many, the contest for prime minister is Johnson's to lose - he has the most declared Conservative supporters in parliament and is widely popular among the party's members, the people who will ultimately choose May's successor.

From Thursday (June 13), the party will hold several votes to whittle down the candidates, with a new leader - and new prime minister - expected to emerge at the end of July.
