BRUSSELS (Reuters) - A further delay of Britain’s departure from the EU after the newly agreed deadline of Oct. 31 looks very unlikely, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said on Thursday.

“I would expect this is the last delay,” Rutte said. “On October 31 the British will either have agreed to a deal, have decided to cancel Brexit or leave without a deal. But then we will have had six more months to prepare for that.”
