Nigel Farage savages Boris Johnson over ‘reheating’ May’s Brexit deal – ‘Honeymoon over!’ | Politics | News

The Brexit Party leader fears the Prime Minister is “stepping into very dangerous territory” by trying to push through his predecessor’s failed deal. Mr Farage took aim at Mr Johnson following his meeting with the Queen on Tuesday to prorogue Parliament. The Monarch with deliver a Queen’s Speech to Parliament on October 14, after the suspension.

Writing in The Daily Telegraph, Mr Farage said: “The summer is over and with it, I would suggest, is Boris Johnson’s brief honeymoon period.

“I say this because the new Prime Minister has been touring Europe in recent days.

“Having listened closely to his various statements, it is apparent that he now wants to reheat the same European treaty which his predecessor, Theresa May, failed to get through the House of Commons three times.

“By doing so, I think he risks stepping into very dangerous territory.”

Mr Farage added that Mr Johnson’s Brexit deal without the Irish backstop would be “the worst so-called deal in British history”.

He explained without a backstop the nation would be bound to the customs union and maintain the jurisdictions of the EU’s courts over the UK’s.
