Johnson and Trump hail 'unparalleled' trade opportunities

Johnson and Trump hail 'unparalleled' trade opportunities

The new Prime Minister promised the United Kingdom would leave the European Union on 31st October "no ifs or buts".

The backstop is an insurance policy created to prevent the return of border controls along the 500-km (300-mile) land border between Ireland and Britain's province of Northern Ireland that were ended by the 1998 Good Friday peace agreement.

"The backstop is an integral part of the withdrawal agreement without the backstop, there is no withdrawal agreement, there is no transition phase, there's no implementation phase, and there'll be no free trade agreement until all those matters are resolved".

The phone conversation comes after the American ambassador to the UK, Woody Johnson, said relations between the United States and UK would be "sensational" now Mr Johnson was in Downing Street.

In response, Barnier rejected those conditions and called Johnson's demands "unacceptable".

Speaking on Thursday in Glencolumbcille, County Donegal, Taoiseach Leo Varadkar described a no-deal Brexit as "a British threat" and that without the backstop, there would be no free trade deal between the European Union and the UK.

"In any case, what remains essential on our side is to remain calm, stick to our principles and guidelines and show solidarity and unity of the 27".

Johnson also held calls Friday with French President Emmanuel Macron, and with political leaders from Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, a United Kingdom government spokesperson said.

Norbert Roettgen, an ally of Germany's Merkel, said in a tweet addressed to Johnson that "neither boastful speeches nor bullying" would make the European Union abandon its principles and unity.

The president had previously heaped praise on Mr Johnson following his victory in the Tory leadership contest.

Even if some are lukewarm toward Johnson, they welcome the end of a two-month period with no effective British leader and say a stronger prime minister might be good.

"I predict he will be will be a great Prime Minister".

The new Prime Minister's bet is that the threat of a no-deal Brexit will persuade the EU's biggest powers - Germany and France - to agree to revise Mrs May's divorce deal, which failed to get through the Commons thrice.

However, he said liberal protestants and unionists would start to question whether they felt at home in a Britain that was talking about the return of the death penalty.

Macron has emerged as one of the European Union leaders most willing to see Britain leave soon, without a deal if it chooses, so as not to threaten European Union stability and unity.

Less than 100 days before Britain's scheduled October 31 withdrawal date, the government doesn't have an approved agreement on the terms that will replace the 45 years of frictionless trade that came with being an European Union member.

It is nearly certain that opposition legislators will try to topple Johnson's government in a vote of no-confidence in September.
