Boris Johnson says that the idea of free movement of people as a founding pillar of the EU is nonsense and complete bollocks. If the EU really doesn't give in the UK will leave the EU customs union without a replacement deal.

Freedom of movement is in the Treaty of Rome 1957, article 3. So Bojo is either a liar or a moron.

"If the EU doesn't give in"??? The UK hasn't even figured out what they want yet, let alone told the EU.

That's ok. Borris is a passionate man. I'm sure the UK's future is just fine in his hands. :lol:

Times change. The UK has been a constant in Europe over the last 300 years and has intervened to help sort out unpleasantness. Its constitution,currency,mores and culture have been a beacon of hope for the benighted europeans. Magna Carta will always be good law. The Treaty of Rome is toast.

What on earth are you talking about? What's BoJo's demand? That Magna Carta be reinstated?

Magna Carta is still on the Statute Books in UK,USA and the rest of the civilised world ie the Commonwealth which we shall be rejoining.
On the other hand the Treaty of Rome will be an historic footnote very soon.

Bojo will keep at this forcing May to dismiss him for harming UK................... silencing him for ever.

May is not stupid, better to have her enemies in the Cabinet and dismissed through incompetence.

Bojo will be invited onto Trump's team and has a fair chance of securing the Republican Presidential nomination next time round.

No it isn't. You've clearly no understanding of what you are talking about.

It is a real pity Borris did not run for and get the PM job over there , it would be some craic with him and Trump.

May is just too grey and boring , a female version of John Major.

English are asking to become isolated as China have became in XV century. Poverty is the only possible outcome.

Also, Boris seems confident the UK will last in its current form. It may not. English may be left alone in their journey.

Good luck to them and bye bye.
