Boris Johnson launches bid to become UK Prime Minister: live updates

Boris Johnson launches bid to become UK Prime Minister: live updates 180809085344 boris johnson 071818 super tease 960x540


Johnson is probed on his past record on Brexit and on his racially divisive comments. “If you want to be prime minister, can the country trust you,” asks BBC Political Editor Laura Kuenssberg.

Johnson says that he has not been inconsistent by saying that the UK should prepare for no-deal Brexit even though he does not want such an outcome.

“If we have to go down that route, the best way to avoid it is to, of course, prepare for it,” Johnson says.

“The team that I hope to build will hit the ground running … we will engage in the friendliest possible way” with the EU, he says, adding that Brussels will respond to a new government.

Those predictions, of course, were made by Theresa May three years ago — before a series of torturous negotiations led to her downfall.
