'It's not too late to save Brexit,' Johnson tells United Kingdom parliament

  • Boris Johnson leaves his grace-and-favour residence on 18 July 2018

For example, it says a "no deal" Brexit would "cause significant" delays at borders because of the need to carry out customs checks.

May averted defeat on the proposed legislation - part of a series of bills overseeing Britain's withdrawal from the European Union - by bowing to pressure from hardline eurosceptics in her own party.

Boris Johnson, who quit as Britain's former foreign minister last week, accused Prime Minister Theresa May on Wednesday of planning a phoney Brexit that would betray voters by failing to take the country completely out of the European Union.

But now the United Kingdom has only two months to make the changes required if it doesn't want to be dragged to the European Court of Justice, the Commission added.

After Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin presented a united front on Monday to deny Russian collusion in the USA election - comments that Trump has since backtracked on - Johnson condemned Russia's "barbaric use of chemical weapons". "We imagine there are going to be around 70 of those technical notices that will be issued".

The document is particularly stark in its analysis of the impact on economies on both sides of the Channel.

The EU executive also explicitly stated that "no progress" has been made in agreeing to a so-called "backstop" solution to the border issue on the island of Ireland, that would guarantee an invisible border at the EU's new external barrier between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.

He added: "This is a secret process and people do not need to declare that they have sent such a letter, but I believe you (and my constituents) have the right to know what I do as your local MP and that is why I am writing to let you know".

Instead, the government is proposing to negotiate the closest possible commercial links - "a common rule book" - for goods trade with the bloc, saying this is the only way to balance political and economic priorities for Brexit. "We [EU] have to be calm and prudent not to put oil on the fire", the official said. It has now also been criticised by May's rebel hardline Brexiteer Conservative MPs.


If the amendment had passed it would have thrown May's Brexit strategy into disarray.

Under its guidelines, the European Union stipulates there should be no "hard border", such as customs checks, in order to preserve the gains of the Irish peace process.

"But we have to protect the consistency of the single market and we have to make sure we keep our autonomy of decision".

There was a moment of relief for May when one of her MPs, Simon Clarke declared he was withdrawing his letter of no confidence in the prime minister and said others should give May their backing.

Barnier will discuss Brexit with European affairs ministers from the EU27 on Friday.

An EU source said all the negotiators sought a withdrawal agreement as the cost is "disproportionately high" without one.

"Facing more committed and hardline opponents - and more of them - than I had".

Barnier will spend two hours with ministers from the other 27 member states presenting his views on the white paper, and updating them on his talks on Thursday evening with the Brexit secretary, Dominic Raab.
