Boris hails ‘Bre-en­try’ into world

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

BORIS John­son has hailed Britain’s “Bre-en­try into the world” as he ex­pressed con­fi­dence in the UK’s fu­ture out­side the EU.

The For­eign Sec­re­tary ( above) in­sisted the vote to leave the EU would al­low Britain more op­por­tu­ni­ties on the world stage, as he out­lined plans for the Gov­ern­ment’s Global Britain pro­gramme to pro­mote Brit in­ter­ests out­side of Europe.

Mr John­son said: “Global Britain is a pro­gramme to ex­plain to the world but also the peo­ple of this coun­try the full range of Britain’s mil­i­tary, cul­tural, com­mer­cial, diplo­matic in­flu­ence in the world.

“I do think that it is im­por­tant to do that, now par­tic­u­larly as we make Brexit – or Bre-en­try into the world, as we should per­haps call it – to help peo­ple to un­der­stand that a more global Britain will be a more pros­per­ous Britain.”

Labour’s Barry Sheer­man de­scribed the idea as a “nasty lit­tle hard Brexit cam­paign­ing group”.
