More Britons support 'Brexit by any means' than oppose it, poll shows

Britain will be the 'big losers' in a no deal Brexit, warns European Commission President Boris Johnson criticises EU lack of cooperation on Brexit deal
Bennie Garza | 13 August, 2019, 22:00

This morning a judge in Scotland agreed to a hearing on whether Mr Johnson can legally suspend Parliament to force through a no-deal Brexit.

None of his meetings have been on camera but in a briefing that was dominated by Brexit, he said "we are with you".

"The single biggest deal we need to do is with our friends and partners over the channel", the British PM told Sky news regarding the UK's withdrawal from the European Union.

"We will do a great deal with them and it will open up opportunities for British businesses in the US". "It will be a tough old haggle but we'll get there".

Trade experts said Bolton's warm words for Britain left many key questions unanswered.

Mr Johnson has told United Kingdom civil servants that "preparing urgently and rapidly for the possibility of an exit without a deal" will be his top priority - although he still insists that he would prefer to leave with a deal. "From the USA side. there is scope for a lot more US exports of agriculture" - but those would be controversial in Britain, where many regard USA, animal-welfare standards as lax.

"Both the Prime Minister and the Taoiseach have said that they want to meet and that meeting needs to be scheduled now", he said.

"Nobody should be surprised that it's a ComRes poll, for the Telegraph accompanied by a press release (from ComRes) that could have been written by Dom Cummings for Boris Johnson", Laurence Janta-Lipinski, a pollster who has worked with YouGov, also tweeted. "So it's not impossible to see them announcing on November 1: 'We have a trade deal.' It might not mean an very bad lot".

As for Bolton's "front of the queue" remark - a dig at former President Barack Obama's 2016 assertion that a post-Brexit Britain would be at the "back of the queue" for a US trade deal - Henig said "it's not entirely clear that anybody else is in the queue".

He said the ultimate aim was a comprehensive trade deal, but highlighted that financial services could be one of the more hard industries to reach an agreement on. "We may be the only people actually wanting this, because Trump doesn't really believe in trade anyway". He said last month the most recent proposal May brokered was no longer an option.

Former Tory Deputy Prime Minister Lord Michael Heseltine told talkRADIO's Julia Hartley-Brewer that an attempt to suspend Parliament would ignore the rights of MPs to hold the government to account.

More than 70 MPs and Peers have joined forces to call on the courts to rule that suspending Westminster to allow the United Kingdom to leave without a deal would be "unlawful and unconstitutional".

In today's initial hearing to determine the timescale for proceedings, Judge Lord Raymond Doherty set the date for the substantive hearing as Friday September 6 - three days after MPs will return from their summer break.
