Boris welcomes Tusk's Brexit offer

Boris Johnson has responded to Donald Tusk’s Brexit offer of a ‘Canada+++’ Free Trade Deal by saying it can work for the country.

Theresa May claims such a deal would break up the UK economically, with Northern Ireland being forced to stay in the EU’s Customs Union. However, Johnson dismissed these concerns saying this “is a superb way forward that can solve the Irish border problem”.

He continued: “But the first step to achieving a mutually beneficial SuperCanada deal is the removal of the Irish backstop so there is no threat to the Union whatsoever.” 

The former Foreign Secretary joins scores of Brexiteer MPs who welcomed Tusk’s intervention, including Jacob Rees-Mogg who said: “This is a good solution for everyone.”
