‘Time to deliver Brexit together’: Boris Johnson urges unity after May’s resignation announcement
Johnson made his comments shortly after May said she will leave office on June 7. The PM announced her exit after multiple attempts to secure a Brexit deal in parliament.
A very dignified statement from @theresa_may. Thank you for your stoical service to our country and the Conservative Party. It is now time to follow her urgings: to come together and deliver Brexit.— Boris Johnson (@BorisJohnson) 24 мая 2019 г.
Lawmakers rejected May’s painstakingly-negotiated plan several times and voted not to allow the government to opt for a ‘no-deal’ Brexit.Also on rt.com UK PM Theresa May announces resignation, will quit on June 7
An ardent Brexiteer, Boris Johnson had been a fervent critic of the government’s tactics in negotiating with the EU. He resigned as secretary for foreign affairs last year, saying that Britain was “truly headed for the status of colony” of the EU.
The European Union eventually agreed to move the Brexit deadline to October 31. If no deal is secured by then, it is presumed that Britain will automatically leave the EU without a divorce plan.
