Floyd leg­end Roger Waters branded British PM Boris John­son a dan­ger­ous “so­ciopath” on Fri­day. The singer said John­son and other pop­ulist lead­ers like US Pres­i­dent Trump and Brazil’s Jair Bol­sonaro are hell- bent on de­stroy­ing the planet as a movie of his latest world tour, “Us + Them” — which high­lighted the plight of mi­grants — was pre­miered at the Venice film fes­ti­val.

ten­sion to Bri­tain’s de­par­ture to avoid an Oc­to­ber 31 exit with­out a tran­si­tion deal was ap­proved by par­lia­ment’s ap­pointed up­per cham­ber, the House of Lords, on Fri­day.

Queen El­iz­a­beth is ex­pected to sign it into law on Mon­day.

The BBC said ear­lier that law­mak­ers, in­clud­ing mod­er­ate Con­ser­va­tives ex­pelled this week from their party for back­ing the bill, have lined up a le­gal team and are will­ing to go to court to en­force the leg­is­la­tion if nec­es­sary. The gov­ern­ment had no im­me­di­ate com­ment.

John­son has said he has no in­ten­tion of seeking an extension and would rather “die in a ditch” than de­lay Brexit.
