Boris Johnson said that he attempted to bridge the chasm. Reason is so that he can get a new Brexit deal with the EU. He discussed his plan with MPs. They can see whether Northern Ireland stay in a European single market for the sake of goods, and leaving the customers union was a compromise.
It was criticized by Jeremy Corbyn, saying that it was unrealistic and damaging proposals. Irish Prime minister, Leo Varadkar, told that new plans are welcomed for sure. But it falls short in various aspects.
Besides, European prime minister, Jean Claude Juncker, also said that positive changes are welcome in Johnson’s proposals. Like the full regulatory alignment for goods. Along with it, he also noted some issues in it.
The commission said that there are specific problematic points that may require further work to be done in the coming days.
Leading Brexit-focused group told in the European parliament that plans in their present form are not representing a deal MEPs can ratify. Real issues are not addressed by the proposals that need to solve. The solution is essential if the backstop has to be removed.
Apart from this, Swedish Prime minister, Stefan Lofven, told that although there are question marks over the proposals; it is still a good initiative for negotiations.
After speaking to the UK counterpart, future negotiations can be judged in a better way, said EU’s chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier.
UK government aims to reach a final agreement by initiating intense negotiations. They will start at the EU summit on October 17.
The prime minister, Boris Johnson, confirms that the United Kingdom will leave the EU, either with or without a deal, on October 31.
