In an ongoing war of words, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has told European Council President Donald Tusk that he will go down in history as ‘Mr No-Deal’ if the European Union continues with its refusal to change the withdrawal agreement.
The remark came after the European Council President, who head the EU’s executive body, said that Prime Minister Johnson should accept the withdrawal agreement handed by Brussels to his predecessor Theresa May as he “will not like to go down in history as ‘Mr No Deal’.”
EU - President - Tusk - Comments - Prime
Reacting to EU President Tusk’s comments, Prime Minister Johnson shot back saying that “if Donald Tusk doesn’t want to go down as ‘Mr No-Deal Brexit,’ then I hope that point will be borne in mind by him too.” The British Prime Minister was referring to Tusk’s refusal to make any changes to the withdrawal agreement.
PM Johnson has repeatedly stated he is willing to leave the EU with a reasonable deal in hand, but if the European bloc continues to insist on imposing punitive terms on the UK, he will opt for a no-deal Brexit, scrapping all existing trade and immigration agreements between London and Brussels.
Part - UK - EU - Criminals - Country
As part of the no-deal, the UK plans to bar EU criminals from entering the country. Under the current British immigration system, subjected to the EU regulations, London was not allowed to impose entry restrictions on travelers holding EU passports. “Boris Johnson will change the rules to allow UK border officials to turn any EU criminals who have previously been jailed for a year or more, sweeping away EU regulations that allowed any EU national entry unless they were a threat to public safety,” UK’s Daily Telegraph reported on Monday quoting an official from the Prime Minister’s office.
