Below are key takeaways from Former British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson’s resignation letter, as reported by Guido Fawkes.

  • Brexit should be about  opportunity and hope. It should be a chance to do things differently, to maximise advantages of the UK as an open, outward-looking economy.
  • That dream is dying, suffocated by needless self-doubt.
  • It now seems that the opening bid of our negotiations involves accepting that we are not actually going to be able to make our own laws.
  • It is clear that by surrendering control over our rulebook for goods and agrifoods we will make it much more difficult to do free trade deals.
  • The trouble is that I have practised the words over the weekend and find that they stick in the throat.
  • We must have collective  responsibility.  
  • Since I cannot in all conscience champion these proposals, I have sadly concluded that I must go.
