The European Union on Saturday October 5th said it rejected a request by the British government to run Brexit talks through weekend, adding that these negotiations are still very far from being proper. 

"If we held talks at the weekend it would look like these were proper negotiations," the newspaper quoted an EU diplomat as saying. "We're still a long way from that".

British government papers submitted to a Scottish court revealed Prime Minister Boris Johnson's intentions to officially call for delaying Britain's withdrawal from the European Union unless a deal is reached by October 19, BBC reported on Friday.
