LONDON, Oct. 31 (EUROPE PRESS) –
The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Boris Johnson, has confessed that he is “incredibly frustrated” for not having completed Brexit this October 31, when planned, although he has trusted that after the general elections of December 12 the Parliament approves the new agreement negotiated with the EU so that the divorce finally occurs on January 31.
“Of course, I am incredibly frustrated that we were not able to have Brexit today,” said the 'premier' in press statements during a visit to a London hospital.
Johnson has reproached Westminster for not being able to fulfill “the mandate of the British people,” who voted mostly for Brexit in the 2016 referendum. “Parliament has simply stood in the middle,” he criticized.
He has stressed that the British deputies have continued to oppose even now, with “a fantastic agreement”, and despite the fact that the United Kingdom was in a race “against the clock” to avoid the chaotic Brexit.
“After three and a half years it has been perfectly clear to me that this Parliament is not going to get Brexit,” he said, arguing that, just like that, the only option was to take the polls to the street. “Let's get it and let's deal with the priorities of the British people,” he urged voters.
The House of Commons rejected up to three times the Brexit agreement negotiated by the previous Government of Theresa May and the EU. Upon his arrival in office last July, Johnson promised that he would make the break true on October 31, with or without agreement.
However, Parliament responded to the premier's order by forcing him to request another extension that has established the new deadline on January 31. In return, he has agreed to the early elections that Johnson requested, scheduled for December 12.
“This is a second great promise unfulfilled by a conservative prime minister in the same year,” the leader of the Brexit Party, Nigel Farage, has reproached him. “We need a clean break now, not a new EU treaty,” he wrote on Twitter, already in electoral code.
