Boris Johnson has announced that he Is prepared to take the United Kingdom out of the European union without a deal.
Boris Johnson is the favourite to replace Theresa May. Mr Johnson has set out his ambition for future Brexit negotiations. The United Kingdom will leave the European Union by October, says Mr Johnson.
He has also made it clear that a no-deal must be an option for any successful negotiations, as this way the UK can walk away, if it does not get the deal it wants.
While Theresa May was negotiating with the EU, they had the upper hand, this is because Theresa May was clear she wanted a deal, no matter what.
Now, that Boris Johnson has made it clear that he is willing to walk away, it gives the United Kingdom a clear and decisive agenda for future negotiations with the European Union.
