Johnson ‘sorry’ for Brexit delay

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson yesterday apologised for not taking Britain out of the European Union by October 31, saying he was “deeply, deeply disappointed”.

“It is a matter of deep regret,” Johnson told Sky News, before criticising Donald Trump after the US president said the prime minister’s deal struck with Brussels would prevent a future Britain/US trade agreement.

“I don’t wish to cast any aspersions on the president but in that respect he is patently in error,” he said. “Anybody who looks at our deal can see it is a great deal... it allows us to have full unfettered control of our tariff schedule”. Trump on Thursday told friend Nigel Farage, who will be up against Johnson in the December 12 election, that “under certain aspects of the deal—you can’t do it, you can’t trade.”

Johnson had vowed he would rather be “dead in a ditch” than tolerate another extension to the tortuous Brexit process, which began in 2016 after a knife-edge public referendum.

On Sunday he blamed Britain’s failure to leave as scheduled on October 31 on parliament passing what he called the “Surrender Act”.
