Today Boris Johnson stated that no deal is a strong possibility. Boris Johnson said: “What I’ve said to our negotiators is that we’ve got to keep going, and we’ll go the extra mile – and we will.
“And I will go to Brussels, I will go to Paris, I will go to Berlin, I will go to wherever to try and get this home and get a deal.
“What I told the Cabinet this evening is to get on and make those preparations. We’re not stopping talks. We’ll continue to negotiate but looking at where we are I do think it’s vital that everyone now gets ready for that Australian option.”
Belgian MEP Philippe Lamberts claimed that due to the exit of Dominic Cummings, Boris is bout to turn soft on Brexit. Philippe said: “probably the sign that Johnson has begun his U-turn and will, in the end, accept EU conditions”.
With this, the UK hit back saying: “I guess the reason the EU feels the need to say these sorts of things is that they are starting to realise that we meant it when we said there were fundamental principles from which we couldn’t move.
“We need to see some realism and creativity from their side if we are to bridge the significant gaps that remain.”
In a recent interview, the controversial Belgian Politician had a message for Brexiteer supporting politicians said: “To voters, I would say I understand their anger, it’s not like they made it up, so many areas were left behind so yes I understand that.
“But was Brexit the right answer to that question? I would say no.
“I do resent those who likened the EU to the Soviet Union, we are not forcing the UK to stay.
“We want to remain good neighbours, but the politicians who advocated for Brexit, many of them lied about the facts.
“I wish them all the best to face the consequences of what they wanted because the future for the UK won’t be as rosy as they say it will.
“I can’t be friends with the likes of Nigel Farage, Iain Duncan Smith or certainly Dominic Cummings.”
