BIRMINGHAM, England, Nov 6 (Reuters) - Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Wednesday promised to take Britain out of the European Union in January, speaking at a campaign rally he used to frame the country’s Dec. 12 general election as the most important in a generation.

“It great to see so many of you here ... at the beginning of what I think is the most important election our country has faced for a generation,” he told the rally in the central English city of Birmingham.

He pledged that if re-elected he would begin passing his Brexit deal through parliament straight away “so we get Brexit done in January and we put the uncertainty behind us.” (Reporting by Elizabeth Piper, writing by William James; editing by Alistair Smout)
