Boris Johnson admits no-deal Brexit will hurt UK while dodging journalists' questions during rambling campaign launch

Category: Political News,Politics

Boris Johnson has renewed his vow to take Britain out of the EU with or without a deal on 31 October, but admitted that withdrawal without an agreement will hurt the UK in the short term.

Breaking cover to launch his campaign for the Conservative leadership in Westminster, Mr Johnson said he had the “vigour” and “guts” to persuade the EU27 to renegotiate the terms of Brexit and talked at length about his time as London mayor. 

But he dodged questions about whether he had taken illegal drugs and cut the event short after just six questions from the media, to the anger of many journalists who still had their hands raised.
