Boris Johnson to say reversing Brexit vote would be disastrous – Politics live

The foreign secretary, Boris Johnson, will deliver the first of the planned “road to Brexit” series of speeches by government ministers at 11am, in which he will warn that reversing the 2016 referendum would be a “disastrous mistake” and insist that leaving the European Union is “not grounds for fear, but hope”.

However, the Pro-Brexit Labour MP, Chuka Umunna, accused Johnson of hypocrisy; saying it was he who notably engaged in “disgraceful scaremongering with his ridiculous assertion that Turkey was on the verge of joining the EU” during the campaign in 2016.
