Johnson says the law needs to be broken to prevent the ‘foreign power’ from splitting the UK

Published on


Boris Johnson told Conservative MPs that legislation that violates international law by rewriting parts of the Brexit withdrawal agreement is “essential to prevent a foreign power from destroying our country.”

The Prime Minister addressed a video call to MPs urging them to support the UK Domestic Market Bill, which begins next Monday in the House of Commons.

“We must not go back to the miserable and tumultuous days of last autumn,” he said.

Three former Conservative leaders and senior party backbenchers have warned against moving ahead with legislation that the government has agreed to violate international law. The number of dissidents to defeat the bills in the Commons is considered too small, but they can be amended or delayed in the House of Lords.

The European Union (EU) has threatened to take legal action against Britain if it does not withdraw its bills by the end of September, but British government sources on Friday said the column had reduced its influence in negotiations for a free trade agreement.

The British talks will travel to Brussels next week for further talks. The view on Dingning Street is that states are often at odds over an issue.

“This week’s conversations are relatively positive than you expected, but ultimately progress will determine whether they get more realism from key areas of deviation. When we start discussions about the essence of some problems, the big key areas remain unresolved. We will talk in Brussels next week, “said David Cook, chief of The Christian Science Monitor’s Washington bureau.
