Boris Johnson has refused to say whether he would resign if he fails to win a majority in Thursday’s general election.
Boris Johnson Refuses To Say Whether He Will Quit If Tories Fail To Win Majority
The prime minister will be one of the shortest-serving in British history if Jeremy Corbyn gets the keys to No.10.
In an interview with Sky’s Sophy Ridge on Sunday, Johnson would not be drawn on his political future when asked three times if he would stand down if he fails to secure a majority.
The PM admitted he was nervous and “fighting for every vote” ahead of December 12.
Asked if he would resign if it did not go his way, he replied: “The choice on Thursday is unbelievably stark, it’s between going forward with a one nation Conservative government that can get Brexit done
Johnson said he was going to “concentrate on the five days before us because that is what I think the people of this country would expect”.
“We have got a very short time to get our message across, it’s a message of hope and optimism about this country,” he said.
Johnson repeated his insistence that there would be no checks for goods travelling between Northern Ireland and Great Britain under his Brexit deal, saying the government documents shared by Labour were “wrong”.
Corbyn said on Friday that his party had obtained a confidential government report which he claimed was proof that there would be customs checks between Great Britain and Northern Ireland after Brexit.
The PM told Sky: “There’s no question of there being checks on goods going NI/GB or GB/NI because they are part of – if you look at what the deal is, we’re part of the same customs territory and it’s very clear that there should be unfettered access between Northern Ireland and the rest of GB.”
But he admitted there will be checks on some goods going from Great Britain to Northern Ireland.
“The only checks that there would be, would be if something was coming from GB via Northern Ireland and was going on to the Republic, then there might be checks at the border into Northern Ireland,” he said.
On Friday Johnson had claimed there would be “no checks on goods going from GB to NI, and from NI to GB.”
In his interview this morning, Johnson also guaranteed that immigration to the UK would fall under his proposed system after Britain has left the EU.
“I can make sure that numbers will come down because we’ll be able to control the system in that way and what I don’t think is right is to have an uncontrolled and unlimited approach to that,” he said.
The PM confessed to having sometimes ridden a bicycle on the pavement when he was asked to reveal the naughtiest thing he has ever done.
“When I was riding a bicycle every day which I used to do, I may sometimes have not always obeyed the law about cycling on the pavement,” he admitted.Related...
