Adamant Johnson asks EU to back down to avoid no-deal Brexit
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson unveiled his plans for a Brexit deal and posed a threat against the European Union to compromise, or the U.K. will leave the region without an agreement.
During his speech at his Conservative Party’s conference, Boris Johnson said his team is amending his constructive and reasonable proposal in Brussels on Wednesday.
Johnson even furthered that Britain is ready to go even without a deal in a month if officials in Brussels won’t back down.
“I hope very much that our friends understand that and compromise in their turn. Because if we fail to get an agreement because of what is essentially a technical discussion of the exact nature of future customs checks when that technology is improving the whole time, then let us be in no doubt that the alternative is no deal,” said Johnson.
Britain is set to leave the EU on Oct. 31, and Johnson has been very consistent with his intention of pushing it through the said date and not delaying it even if no agreement would be made between the UK and the EU.
