Boris Johnson has said no prime minister is right to accept the terms of trade offered by the EU because he is preparing to fly to Brussels for final talks.
When asked by House of Commons senior Tory backpacker Edward Leigh about the prospects for a deal, Johnson said: “If our friends in the EU pass a new law now in the future that we in this country insist on not complying with or abiding by, then they will automatically punish and retaliate against us. Want ownership.
“Second, they say the UK is the only country in the world that does not have sovereignty over its fishing waters. I do not believe they are rules that any Prime Minister of this country should accept.”
Johnson appeared at the prime minister’s questions before heading to Brussels for talks with European Commission President Ursula van der Leyen on dinner.
Challenge by Labor leader, Khair StormerJohnson said the UK would be “a magnet for foreign investment” on the risks of leaving the transition period on January 1.
“In this country, across the UK, jobs will be created Proxy But because ProxyHe said, “In fact, this country is becoming a magnet for foreign investment; in fact, it already exists and will remain so.”
He said the UK would “prosper” whether the outcome of the talks was a “Canadian settlement or an Australian settlement”.
The “Australian settlement” is Johnson’s acronym for the January 1 transition agreement, under which the EU will impose tariffs on British goods.
Stormer accused the prime minister of failing to secure the “stove-ready” Brexit deal he boasted of during last year’s general election campaign. But Johnson said it referred to the devaluation agreement that allowed the UK to leave the EU on January 31 this year.
“We had a stove preparation agreement, which is a withdrawal agreement, so that this country could leave the customs union and leave the single market and fulfill our promises,” he said.
As a result, he said, the UK could implement a new immigration regime, raise animal welfare standards and enter into new trade agreements with other countries.
The Prime Minister attacked Stormer, who appeared via video link, because he was self-isolated, accusing Labor of being “like a Synx” over the issue, failing to say whether it would vote for a Brexit deal.
Stormer said no decision would be made until there was an agreement to explore, and he added: “My party will vote in the national interest.”
He pointed out the projections of the Independent Office for Budget Responsibility, suggesting that “the cost of leaving the EU without any agreement is high unemployment, high inflation and a small economy.”
