UK General election: Boris Johnson claims Brexit will no longer be talked about after January as UK will have left EU

UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson has suggested that Brexit will no longer be talked about after January, by which time he says the UK will have left the European Union.

Boris Johnson also denied that Conservative candidates were forced to sign up to his Brexit deal, describing the suggestion as “totally unfair”.

Labour leader, Jeremy Corbyn had previously said Mr Johnson’s promise to “get Brexit done” is a “fraud on the British people”, saying that Mr Johnson’s deal is “just the beginning of years” of negotiations.

Mr Johnson, asked on ITV’s Peston if everybody will stop talking about Brexit after the end of January, said: “Yes, and now let me say something.

“We will have got Brexit done and you will find that it moves, because what will happen is that the parliamentary agony will be over, and the political agony will be over, and the misery and tedium and procrastination that’s been going on will be over.”

On the suggestion that Tory candidates were forced to sign up to his deal, Mr Johnson said: “I have not forced them that is totally unfair, there was absolutely no lobotomy…”
