In their first meeting since Johnson became prime minister in July, the two dined on soft-boiled organic eggs and butter-roasted pollock with risotto. "We need a legally operable text to work on as soon as possible".

Pointedly, he said, "Such proposals have not yet been made".

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, left, and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker leave after their meeting in Luxembourg, on September 16, 2019.

Rinne said he told his British counterpart Boris Johnson "some weeks ago" that the only Brexit deal available is the one negotiated with his predecessor, Theresa May, and there is little appetite in the European Union for an extension beyond October 31 "if there is no possibility to see a new solution". The agreement made by his predecessor, Theresa May, was rejected three times by Britain's Parliament.

Johnson seems to be calculating that fears of the economic consequences of a no-deal Brexit will drive European Union leaders to make concessions at a last-call summit that begins October 17.

Talks will also take place between the EU's negotiator Michel Barnier and Brexit Secretary Steve Barclay, while Mr Johnson and Mr Juncker would remain in touch.

Juncker told Johnson over lunch that he must present workable proposals to replace the Brexit backstop.

Protesters shouted "Boris - the incredible t**t", "Bog off Boris" and "B******s to Boris".

Their noisy presence scuttled a planned outdoor news conference from the pair.

The visibly frustrated Luxembourg leader said Johnson needed to "stop speaking and act". Johnson has vowed to complete Brexit "do or die", and has compared himself and the U.K.to angry green superhero the Incredible Hulk, telling the Mail on Sunday newspaper: "The madder Hulk gets, the stronger Hulk gets, and he always escapes. and that is the case for this country".

PM Johnson Stands by Exit Date Ahead of Meeting with Top Eurocrat, Condemns MPs 'Trying to Crush Brexit'

Boris Johnson! Well, here's one new term you probably don't need explaining: The Hulk.

The Prime Minister also said that if he can't get what he wants with his negotiations, he will just ignore the Commons vote that ordered him to delay the UK's departure, adding one of the Marvel character's most famous quotes: "The madder Hulk gets, the stronger Hulk gets".

On Tuesday, Britain's Supreme Court will consider whether Johnson's decision to prorogue or suspend the British Parliament for five weeks was lawful, after conflicting judgments in lower courts.

The prime minister gave no indication how he would avoid asking for an extension if there was no deal.

The High Court in London dismissed the case brought by businesswoman and campaigner Gina Miller - who previously brought a successful legal challenge against the Government over the triggering of the Article 50 process to start the Brexit countdown - finding that the length of the prorogation was "purely political".

The constitution will be at the center of the Supreme Court proceedings this week after Scottish judges ruled against Johnson's suspension of Parliament.

But the accord will also have to win the support of the other 27 EU leaders and the European Parliament if Britain is not to crash out with no deal on October 31.

Johnson's government claims it is close to negotiating a new deal, with foreign secretary Dominic Raab saying on BBC Radio 4.s Today programme that today's meeting with the Eurocrat was a "significant milestone" and "the contours of a deal are now very clear".

Moments after dodging the news conference, Johnson told Sky News that there was "a lot of noise and I think our points might have been drowned out". If you value what we are doing, you can help us by making a contribution to the cost of our journalism.
