“Boris Johnson is playing the British public for fools” – Gwynne responds to leaked ‘unrealistic’ Brexit timetable video

Andrew Gwynne, Labour’s Campaign Coordinator, responding to a leaked recording in which Michel Barnier describes Boris Johnson’s Brexit timetable as ‘unrealistic’, said:

“Boris Johnson is playing the British public for fools. He’s hiding in fridges to dodge interviews precisely because his fake Brexit slogans can’t stand up to scrutiny, just like his empty words on the NHS.

“Johnson’s sell-out Brexit deal will put us on the fast-track to a cliff-edge No Deal Brexit. And that’s exactly what he wants, so he can drive the UK into a toxic trade deal with Trump and put the NHS up for sale to US drug companies.

“The only place Johnson’s sell-out Brexit deal should go is into the deep freeze, just like Johnson when he doesn’t have the guts to face a reporter.”
