Boris Johnson klager over at medlemmer av Parlamentet saboterer en Brexit-løsning. Dette oppfordrer EU til. være steile og nekte reforhandling. I sum øker dette sjansene for en hard Brexit, dvs at britene går ut av EU uten noen avtale, sa Johnson.

Speaking during a Facebook live People’s PMQs session, the Mr Johnson said: «There’s a terrible kind of collaboration, as it were, going on between people who think they can block Brexit in Parliament and our European friends.

«And our European friends are not moving in their willingness to compromise, they’re not compromising at all on the Withdrawal Agreement even though it’s been thrown out three times, they’re sticking to every letter, every comma of the Withdrawal Agreement – including the backstop – because they still think Brexit can be blocked in Parliament.»

He added that the «awful thing is the longer that goes on, the more likely it is of course that we will be forced to leave with a no-deal Brexit».

«That’s not what I want, it’s not what we’re aiming for but we need our European friends to compromise,» he said.

«The more they think there’s a chance that Brexit can be blocked in Parliament, the more adamant they are in sticking to their position.»

 

Boris Johnson må ha tenkt på sin hovedutfordrer som partileder, Philip Hammond. Hammond har nettopp gått av som finansminister og er dermed parkert. Han sier at en no-Brexit – en utmarsj uten avtale – vil være et like stort forræderi mot folkeavstemningen som å forbli i EU.

It comes after Philip Hammond claimed a no-deal Brexit would be as “much a betrayal” of the referendum as remaining in the European Union.

The former chancellor said Mr Johnson’s negotiating stance with Brussels was a “wrecking tactic” that “will mean no-deal”.

Johnson har hele tiden gjort det klart at Storbritannia forlater EU 31. oktober – med eller uten avtale. Hvis han sier noe annet lar han EU sitte med veto. Theresa May oppnådde ingenting ved å være snill pike. Det har Boris sett og skjønt. Skal han få EU til å gi nye innrømmelser må han vise at han mener alvor.

In his first public intervention since leaving Number 11, Mr Hammond claimed that attempting to remove the Irish backstop “in its entirety» would scupper any chance of a renegotiation.

He added that to “set the bar for negotiations so high” so that no-deal “inevitably” happened would also be “a betrayal”.

Men Johnson kan ikke la bakdøren stå åpen på ubestemt tid, da vil britene likevel ikke gjenvinne kontroll med grensene.

En annen motstander er Speaker i parlamentet, James Berkow, sverget på at parlamentet vil vedta lover som forbyr en hard brexit.

Det bygger opp til en intens maktkamp i Storbritannia. Boris skal få brynt seg.
