Boris Johnson has re-affirmed his commitment to take the UK out of the EU by Halloween.

The current front-runner to succeed Theresa May launched his leadership campaign in London earlier.

Mr Johnson said he is "not aiming for a no-deal outcome" for Brexit but he said leaving no deal on the table was a "vital tool of negotiation."

He added that the UK "must do better than the current withdrawal agreement" and that he's ready to get working.

Mr. Johnson says he has the experience to manage difficulties like Brexit, courtesy of his tenure as Mayor of London.

Known for some spectacular gaffes in the past, Mr. Johnson said regardless of his position, he'll continue to speak his mind.

The first vote in the crowded field in the Tory leadership race takes place tomorrow.
