Boris Johnson wants renewal of 'ties that bind UK'

Boris Johnson wants renewal of 'ties that bind UK'”

Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab, effectively Mr Johnson's deputy prime minister, said legislation would need to be considered if there was a no-deal Brexit so there would not be a "vacuum" in Northern Ireland.

Boris Johnson is due to make his first visit to Scotland as prime minister and has called for a renewal of "the ties that bind our United Kingdom".

PM Boris Johnson is expected to visit Northern Ireland in the near future following the announcement of an extra £300m of investment in parts of Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon condemned Mr Johnson's plans for the Brexit public information campaign.

"Even if you know nothing about British politics, you're probably already vaguely aware of him", said Oliver, before recounting some of Johnson's career lows - such as the time he got stuck on a zipline - and noting how "everything about his appearance is consistently, immaculately wrong".

Through this new funding, we will begin new deals in Falkirk, the Islands, Argyll & Bute, Mid South West Northern Ireland and Causeway Coast and Glens.

"Ruth Davidson is right to think we should go for a deal and not a no deal".

"I'm proud to be in Scotland today to make clear that I am a passionate believer in our great Union, and I look forward to visiting Wales and Northern Ireland to ensure that every decision I make as prime minister promotes and strengthens our Union".

European Union member nations have said renegotiating the deal is not an option. "So it's not acceptable to me and it certainly wouldn't be acceptable to the Irish government, I would expect also".

The Prime Minister rejected an assertion from his no-deal planning chief Michael Gove that the Government's assumption was now that Brussels would not give ground on the terms of a deal. "It was on that basis that they cast their votes and I think it would be totally wrong now to break that promise to the people of Scotland and the United Kingdom and have another referendum".

An election win could allow Johnson to overcome parliament's opposition to a no-deal Brexit.

"If our partners won't move on the backstop, then we have got to get ready for no deal".

"Looking ahead, the outlook for the pound remains as cloudy as ever, with nearly every potential Brexit outcome, from no-deal to no-Brexit and possibly a hard Brexit on the table".

The IfG added: "This will be extremely contentious, but without it Northern Ireland will be left even more exposed to the economic shocks of a no-deal Brexit than it is now".

The XS committee will meet twice a week and will be chaired by Mr Johnson at its next meeting on Thursday.

Welsh Secretary Alun Cairns said: "Wales is the only nation of the United Kingdom where Growth Deals have already been announced to cover all of our communities and the prime minister and I are committed to building on the successes of our existing collaborative achievements in both south and north Wales".
