LONDON: PM Boris Johnson on Monday defended his plan to unilaterally rewrite Britain’s divorce take care of the European Union as an insurance coverage coverage in opposition to the bloc’s “unreasonable behaviour”. The feedback got here as a rising variety of once-loyal lawmakers condemned the contentious transfer.
Johnson mentioned a deliberate legislation designed to override parts of the Brexit withdrawal deal was wanted as a result of the EU would possibly “go to excessive and unreasonable lengths” in its remedy of former member Britain. “I’ve completely no want to make use of these measures,” he advised lawmakers as he launched the Inner Market Invoice within the Home of Commons forward of a vote. “They’re an insurance coverage coverage”. The EU has demanded the invoice be withdrawn earlier than the top of the month, insisting Britain should uphold its commitments.
