The primary apportion will transport to Berlin to accommodate German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Wednesday, and accommodate French President Emmanuel Macron in Paris on Thursday.

When Mr Johnson meets a EU’s many absolute leaders – Angela Merkel and Emmanuel Macron – he will repeat his summary that a UK is leaving, no matter what, during a finish of October.
