PM May should renegotiate Brexit deal if loses vote in parliament: Johnson

LONDON (Reuters) - Former British foreign minister Boris Johnson said on Sunday Theresa May could stay on as prime minister and go back to Brussels and renegotiate the divorce agreement if she loses a crucial parliamentary vote on Tuesday on her Brexit deal.

 

Johnson, a leading Brexit campaigner who is seen as a possible successor to May, said Brussels would listen if she asked for the removal from the deal of the Irish "backstop", an insurance policy designed to prevent a post-Brexithard border between EU member Ireland and British-ruled Northern Ireland.

 

Asked if she could stay on as leader and go back to the EU to renegotiate the deal if she loses the vote, Johnson told the BBC: "Of course, that is exactly what needs to happen."

 

"What people want to hear now is not stuff about leadership elections and personalities, what they want to hear is that there a plan to get out of this mess," he said.

And there we have it, Alexander Boris (man of the people) De Pfeffl Johnson, a leadings light of the Leave campaign has lost his former will lead Britain to Brexit.

 

If he were not sure Brexit is a crock that can’t be improved he’d be eagerly putting himself forward together with the Brexiteer Plan B he and his chums have been hiding from the nation.

The people have already decided, I repeat only the losers want another vote.

Take a look at this video, I need to warn posters that it contains scenes with Alistair Campbell, which some viewers may find offending, it is not reconmended for people with a nervous disposition.

The video has zero bearing on the UK’s deal with the EU.

 

The issue is the deal.

 

And it is the exact crock that it was always going to be.

So are you saying if we had another vote, whichever way the vote went would not influence the outcome of 'the deal' strange.🤔
