The UK transport minister on Friday has decided to resign from office over Brexit issues, and called for the public to have a fresh say on Brexit he is now one amongst those from Theresa May's government to leave office.
Johnson, the younger brother of hard-Brexiteer Boris Johnson, called for the public to have a fresh say on Britain’s membership of the European Union (EU).
The Conservative Party MP, who was a New Delhi-based journalist between 2005 and 2008, said the UK was “barrelling towards an incoherent Brexit that is going to leave us trapped in a subordinate relationship to the EU”.
It was “imperative” to “go back to the people and check they are content to proceed on this extraordinary basis”.
“Contrary to promises, there is in fact no deal at all on our future trading relationship with the EU which the government can present to the country,” he said.
