Prime Minister Boris Johnson claimed that the European Union (EU) is not acting in “good faith” during talks over a post-Brexit trade agreement, labelling Brussels negotiators “abusive”.
Mr Johnson said the EU is “being abusive to Britain and risking four decades of friendship”. He told the Sun the UK must “ring-fence” the Brexit deal “to put in watertight bulkheads that will stop friends and partners making abusive or extreme interpretations of the provisions.”
Meanwhile, Joe Biden has been hit with a furious backlash after he waded into the row over Boris Johnson’s Brexit masterplan.
The US Democratic presidential candidate has sparked fury after he warned the UK it must honour the Northern Irish peace deal as it extracts itself from the EU or there would be no US trade deal.
A former Cabinet minister hit back saying Mr Biden, who is going up against US President Donald Trump, is a “Brexit and Boris hater”.
