John­son warns of Brexit ‘melt­down’

Global Times - Weekend - - WORLD -

Bri­tish For­eign Sec­re­tary Boris John­son has been caught on tape pre­dict­ing a “melt­down” in Brexit talks and mus­ing ad­mir­ingly how US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump might han­dle them.

In his lat­est in­dis­creet re­marks likely to em­bar­rass Prime Min­is­ter Theresa May, John­son said the gov­ern­ment was reach­ing a phase in ne­go­ti­a­tions “where we are much more com­bat­ive with Brus­sels.”
