PM Boris Johnson says Brussels still thinks MPs will block Brexit SUBSCRIBE: https://youtu.be/xsXMP6qQv-w : BORIS Johnson has blasted the “negative” EU for throwing out his Brexit plans – as he insisted that Brussels WILL have to drop the hated backstop.
The PM tonight insisted there is a huge opportunity to “take out the backstop” and the EU now acknowledged that “something needs to be done”.
He hit back at Brussels after EU bosses today blasted his plans to scrap the hated Northern Irish backstop and replace it with something else.
Speaking in a pooled clip he said: “We can’t have this backstop.
“I am going to make the point that the backstop is going to come out.”
And he insisted that he would NOT be putting any checks in place at the Northern Irish border if we had to leave with No Deal – hitting back at EU boss Donald Tusk who insisted he was deceiving the public.
Boris explained that Parliament “can’t get it through” as it is and insisted that “I will be making some progress in the course of the next few weeks”.
The main problem is that the EU still think that Brexit can be stopped by Remainer MPs in Parliament, he said.
