Boris Johnson, G7 summit

August 24, 2019

Facts

A senior EU diplomat told The Telegraph on the same day that the “ball is really squarely and firmly in the UK court,” with the onus on the UK to offer alternatives to the so-called “backstop.”

Verdict

Johnson’s assertion that the EU would be entirely to blame for a no-deal Brexit is undermined by the fact that the EU had struck a deal with his predecessor, Theresa May.
