Jeremy Hunt and Boris Johnson positions on Brexit

Only 160,000 Conservative Party members get a vote for UK’s next PM.

Boris ‘s position on Brexit:

  • Promised to leave the EU by October 31st 2019
  • No deal Brexit is an option
  • The ‘backstop’ clause focused on Northern and Republic of Ireland would be revisited in 2019-2020 when the UK and EU negotiate its long term trading relationships.
  • No deal would mean that the UK withholds its membership fees to the EU.

Hunt’s position on Brexit:

  • Called October 31st a fake deadline
  • UK must change the ‘backstop’ clause in the existing deal
  • Rework Theresa May’s Withdrawal Agreement
