UK PM Johnson promises to end ‘unbearable’ uncertainty around Brexit


Britain to become ‘second rate’ in the world after Brexit, says EU’s Donald Tusk

COVENTRY, England/LONDON (Reuters) – British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Wednesday promised he would end the “unbearable” uncertainty around Brexit if he wins a Dec. 12 election, saying that political paralysis was affecting investment decisions in the country.

On a campaign trip to central England, Johnson said only he can break the deadlock over Britain’s departure from the European Union.

The election was called to end three years of disagreement over Brexit that has sapped investors’ faith in the stability of the world’s fifth-largest economy and damaged Britain’s standing since it voted in a 2016 referendum to leave the EU.

Johnson said the debate around Brexit had been paralyzing politics for the last three years.
