JAKARTA (TheInsiderStories) – Britain prime minister Boris Johnson will tell German chancellor Angela Merkel and French president Emmanuel Macron that there must be a new Brexit deal when he makes his first trip abroad, foreign media reported. He heading to Berlin on Wednesday and to Paris in the next day.
Merkel itself was reported will refuse Johnson’ demands to abandon the backstop and renegotiate the withdrawal agreement at the G7 Summit. Instead, the chancellor will tell the Johson that Germany is ready to let Britain walk away from the European Union (EU) with no deal.
But the British’ leader said will make clear message to Merkel and Macron that his country will leave the organization on Oct. 31 with or without a deal. Johnson is expected to say that parliament will not and cannot cancel the outcome of the EU referendum.
He believed before met the two leaders, British’ member of parliament who voted against the EU withdrawal agreement could support Johson’ proposal with the prospect of no-deal Brexit. Recently, Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn has sent a letter to the leaders of other political parties and senior backbenchers from across parliament to lay out his plan to stop No Deal Brexit. He also invited the citizen of the country to vote of no-confidence in Boris Johnson’ government.
Through a letter to all party leaders and other senior politicians, he said as a “strictly time-limited temporary government” would delay Britain’ departure from the EU beyond Oct. 31. But some observer rated, a veteran socialist, is a highly divisive figure in parliament and could struggle to win backing for his plan.
Previously, EU’ leader Ursula von der Leyen has warned Johnson of “challenging times ahead” over his plan to renegotiate Brexit. The premier was a Brexiter who campaigned to leave the organization with or without a deal in October.
The new premier has said he would ramp up preparations for a no-deal to try to force the EU’ negotiators to make changes to the accord. He vowed to renegotiate Brexit and to quit the bloc on Oct. 31, with or without a deal to smooth the split. Now he has just 100 days to prove he is as good as his word.
“We will, of course, be pushing our plan into action, and getting ready to come out on October 31, come what may … do or die, come what may,” he said during the leadership campaign as quoted by global media.
Leyen, the German conservative set to take over at the helm of the EU from November, told media on Tuesday (07/23) that all parties had a “duty to deliver something which is good for people in Europe and the United Kingdom”.
But, in a cautionary statement, she also warned there would be “challenging times ahead of us” with the bloc and Johnson set to lock horns in the coming weeks over his vow to renegotiate the withdrawal agreement.
Those in favor of Brexit fear the backstop could trap Britain in EU trading rules indefinitely and prevent the UK from striking trade deals with countries around the world, given that a new trade accord with the bloc could take years to negotiate.
