Boris Johnson calls for general election on 12 December

Now we’ve got a great deal on Brexit, as you
know, for the first time in three and a half years, parliament voted to endorse a way out
of the EU; the deal that I was able to do with our friends and partners. But unfortunately, they also voted to delay
the final approval of that deal that they’ve endorsed and what that means, I’m afraid,
is that if this parliament is anything to go by, that delay could go on for a very long
time. I’m afraid it looks as though our EU friends
are going to respond to parliament’s request by adding an extension, which I really don’t
want to at all. So the way to get this done, the way to get
Brexit done, is I think, to be reasonable with parliament and say, if they genuinely
want more time to study this excellent deal, they can have it, but they have to agree to
a general election on 12 December. That’s the way forward, because this parliament’s
been going on for a long time without a majority, it’s refusing to deliver Brexit, it’s impossible
to deliver legislation. It’s frankly that the opposition summoned
up the nerve to submit themselves to the judgement of our collective boss which is the people
of the UK.
