Boris Johnson says his Brexit deal shows ‘great flexibility’


I do not for one moment resile from the fact
that we have shown great flexibility in the interest of reaching
an accommodation with our European friends, and achieving
the resolution for which we all yearn. If our European neighbours choose not to show a corresponding willingness to reach a deal,
then we shall have to leave on October 31st without an agreement.
And- And we are ready to do so. But that outcome would be a failure of statecraft
for which all parties would be held responsible. When I think of the conflicts that have wracked
Europe in the past, of the immense challenges that we have together surmounted, of the 74
years of peace and prosperity that we have together achieved, I believe that surely,
we can summon the collective will to reach a new agreement.
Mr. Speaker, this Government have moved; our proposals do represent a compromise; and I
hope that the House can now come together in the national interest behind this new deal
to open a new chapter of friendship with our European neighbours and move on to our domestic
priorities, including education, infrastructure and our NHS. So, Mr. Speaker, let us seize
this moment to honour our overriding promise to the British people, respect Brexit,
get Brexit done. And I commend this statement to the House. [Cheers]

  1. This deal is pure electioneering. The EU will never accept any deal that goes backwards on what has already been agreed in principle. Johnson knows this – that's the whole point of this deal. He never had any intention of seriously trying to reach a deal and without the Supreme Court's decision, I doubt if we'd have heard any official announcement of a proposed deal at all.

  2. Flexibility? lol More like a transparent play to blame everyone else whilst forcing no deal through so he can please his hedge fund masters.

  3. The EU was already introducing e-borders for EU Member States, which would have applied to Ireland and the UK if they remained in the EU.
    The backstop is being used politically by the EU to force a remain…

  4. What disgusts me are those remainers who feel we should block leaving the EU and ignore the democratic vote.
    I voted remain but if you get another referendum I'm voting leave.

  5. It will be interesting to see how many mps will be taken in by Boris the charlatan….in his own party and or other parties?

  6. Its a fair deal but a no deal is much better. No matter what comes to the table" labour and its bunch of goons will not vote fir it" even if it had everything labour wanted they will still vote it down.

  7. Generally, what should the deal cover? All I hear about is deal or no deal but no context of what a deal entails.

  8. I think the UK will end up leaving without a deal. The EU masters cannot show weakness and will allow the UK to go overboard without a life vest. No worries. The Brits once rule the world from nothing more than a sailing ship. I am sure they will survive and thrive.

  9. How is a no deal brexit everyone's fault, literally halft the people are saying not to brexit

  10. Love Brexit coming from America, “No Deal!” 🇺🇸🇬🇧👩🏻‍🎓👨🏻‍🏭👨🏻‍🔬👩🏻‍🍳👩🏼‍⚕️👨🏻‍🌾👩‍⚖️vs🧟‍♀️🧛🏻‍♂️🧙🏻‍♀️🦸🏼‍♂️🦹🏻‍♀️🧙🏽‍♂️🧜🏻‍♀️🧟‍♂️🤖🤡😈🇪🇺🏳️‍🌈🏴‍☠️

  11. You stuck up lying fat Establishment two faced lying tosser. WE VOTED TO LEAVE YOU BUNCH OF ABSOLUTE CROOKS.

  12. I feel so sorry for him, you can see eh has been effected by all this, and extremely tired; and actually Corbyn has played a role in an outcome where the country cannot make an effective deal with the EU, so so sad…

  13. Johnson won't release the legal text because it will show that his verbal assurances are contradicted by the 'facts' of his offer.

  14. This man is going to destroy Britain for working people while him and his millionaire torrie friends will be unaffected no matter what. It’s all a big game for these guys but this isn’t the Oxford Union it’s real people’s life’s up for grabs all over the uk. Never trust the torries.

  15. 👊 Do not ever travel to the Uk. People is so racist now. You cannot talk in another language in the street because they look at you like they want to punch you. They are bullying Europeans 👊 but excluding Irish

  16. Did you ever hear such a lot of twaddle in your life? How you voted aside, you surely can't take this person seriously… can you? TRUMP, SAVILE, JOHNSON – What do they have in common? Larger than life, clown hair, serial sexual allegations of harasment, threats made to journalists and friends of the Torys. Now there's a pattern there.

  17. We voted Leave. Out of the EU. Not for any kind of deal. Deals can be done after No Deal Brexit trading under WTO. Anything less and Johnson can kiss goodbye to his job, and his party.

  18. Johnson indicates little room for compromise on his Brexit deal ► https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2019/oct/03/trump-deal-brexit-corbyn-condemns-boris-johnson-irish-border-plan
    EU parliament: Boris Johnson Brexit plan not remotely acceptable ► https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2019/oct/03/eu-parliament-boris-johnson-brexit-plan-not-remotely-acceptable

  19. What it shows is a total betrayal of the British people that's the 17.4 million who voted to leave with no deal. when I ticked the box I didn't see leave the EU with deals on it, it said leave.

  20. He knows that this horsesh-t is unacceptable to the EU. He wants to crash out. He and his millionaire friends couldn't care less.
    Johnson has said he plans to leave on Oct. 31 with or without a Brexit divorce agreement, yet the British Parliament has passed a law requiring him to seek an extension if no Brexit deal is reached. That is the law.
    Law? Boris cares nothing about law. He has already shown that. Just horrible.

  21. It's obvious that brexit, funded to crash the pound, is being pushed for a no deal maximum crash. These brexiters are selling us all down the river.

  22. As far as Ireland is concerned the new proposals aren't worth a piss. Brexit may well work for England, Scotland and Wales but it's a nightmare for the Irish. The Republic will have the backing of the other member states and the US administration. The only way Brexit can work for the whole of the UK is for Northern Ireland to effectively remain within the EU. Any attempt to ignore the Irish question will simply result in a resumption of the old conflicts of the past.

  23. So he wants the no deal deepest crash of the pound and is willing to start civil war to do it.
    How much money has he and his got riding on the brexit crashed pound?

  24. The friendly tyrants who run the EU are horrified that Britain is LEAVING. This spells the end of the EU. NO DEAL BREXIT is the course Britain must take. Nigel Farage and Boris Johnson have stated NO DEAL BREXUT is what the intransigent interlopers of the EU deserve and will reap. . Trust me, this is the last chance that Britain has to save itself from enslavement. Things couldn't be more dire, if the British miss this chance to LEAVE.

  31. Hi everyone
    Just my honest opinion :-
    Brexit or leaving the eu as a majority vote was bound to happen if you enslave people nd make the rich get richer nd poor get poorer society
    If u allow an influx of people to work nd live in the UK without any limits then over the years whon is going to compound social orders
    E.g non affordable housing ,high rents which = money that could of gone towards a deposit for a house , schools full Hospitals full
    Infrastructure behind
    High crime regardless what the tabloids say I live in the ghetto I know what I see
    Only people getting rich from eu are the ones in charge nd landlords, corporations, nd those who know how to swindle the grants the eu give
    Normal people what do we get of significance I'd say slavery

  32. Flexibility? You mean the tories have surrendered. We will never leave with a "deal" and you will never leave without one.
