BORIS JOHNSON STANDS ON BREXIT WITH THE EUROPEAN UNION
Boris Johnson stands on Brexit could be seen as a way forward, but there are fears of uncertainty since Parliaments rejected a no-deal Brexit with the European Union under ‘Theresa May’s’ government. Meanwhile, the favorite to emerge British Prime minister ‘Boris Johnson’ has said he will seek a new deal with the European Union, adding if the Union refuses his demands then he will lead United kingdom out on the basis of no-deal, 31st October.
Mr. Johnson’s Halloween pledge to leave without a deal could provoke a standoff, considering parliaments outright rejection of a no-deal Brexit, however, Boris Johnson stands, indicate uncertainty and a possible no-deal Brexit. While speaking on BBC, he said he could pick ‘Theresa May’s’ “dead” Withdrawal Agreement that he likes in order to seek a fresh deal with European Union. He also made it clear as he said “My pledge is to come out of the European Union at Halloween on 31st October” and also insisted by adding that there are “abundant technical fixes” to prevent the return of a hard border between Ireland and the United Kingdom’s Northern Ireland.
Boris Johnson stands came with a warning that there would be “creative ambiguity” considering how and when previously agreed thirty-nine billion pound exit could be paid. However, Ireland’s indication proves it’s not willing to change the Irish border “backstop”, the European Union has equally refused to renegotiate the Withdrawal Agreement reached last November. Based on this, Mr. Johnson said he does not want a no-deal, which investors warned could send financial markets and shockwaves through the European economy, however, for better understanding he elaborated, as he told BBC by saying “the way to get our friends and partners to understand how serious we are is finally, I’m afraid, to abandon the defeatism and negativity that has enfolded us in a great cloud for so long and to prepare confidently and seriously for a World Trade Organization (WTO) or no-deal outcome”, it is important to put it on the table in order to enable Britain to get the result it wanted.
“Let me tell you, there are abundant, abundant technical fixes that can be introduced to make sure that you don’t have checks at the border”.
Last week, the Irish foreign minister ‘Simon Coneney’ said the contenders to become Britain’s Prime minister had offered solutions “simply not based on reality”. This proves uncertainty over Boris Johnson stands.
Equally, the Prime minister within the period of 2007 to 2010 ‘Gordon Brown’ said the unity of the United Kingdom would be at greater risk than at any other time in its three hundred years (300-years) history if Johnson wins the top job.
