Boris Johnson Says There’s ‘Bags of Time’ Left to Renegotiate Brexit With EU
U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson urged the European Union to show “common sense” and re-write the Brexit divorce deal he says is unacceptable, as he stepped up preparations to leave the bloc without one.
With just 84 days to go until the U.K.’s scheduled departure from the EU on Oct. 31, Johnson said there’s plenty of time for his European counterparts to renegotiate the Withdrawal Agreement struck by his predecessor Theresa May, which was rejected three times in Parliament.
“I very much hope that our friends and partners will show common sense and that they will compromise,” he said in an interview with the BBC Thursday.
