Was he telling porkies? Melton Mowbray pork pie makers dispute Boris Johnson's claim they are sold in Thailand and Iceland after he urged Donald Trump to make it easier for them to be exported to US after Brexit Boris Johnson was under pressure over pork pies today after he claimed the UK-made meat products were sold in Thailand and Iceland but experts said that simply is not true. The Prime Minister had used Melton Mowbray pork pies as an example of how the US needed to slash red tape if there is to be a wide-reaching trans-Atlantic post-Brexit trade deal. He said that the products were currently 'unable to enter the US market' because of food restrictions but that they were 'sold in Thailand and in Iceland'.

Mr Farage told The Times: “If Boris Johnson thinks that the withdrawal agreement can stand then we don’t.

“At the moment he is suggesting no change at all to the withdrawal agreement other than the Irish backstop. This is not acceptable.”

"Boris, you can't win without us. Boris, if you go for the withdrawal agreement I'm afraid you will lose, but if you do the right thing and we support you you'll be a national hero in the history of this nation."

Earlier on Monday, Mr Farage told LBC Radio: "The big message here is Boris Johnson wants the Withdrawal Agreement. He wants Mrs May's Withdrawal Agreement, but minus the backstop.

"And if he does get voted down in the House of Commons tomorrow, which I have to say, looking at the Tory rebels who are beginning to stand up, does look quite likely to me, then there will be a general election.

"Do I think it is acceptable that a general election could be held on the basis that he goes back to Brussels to get the Withdrawal Agreement? Well I absolutely don't."

"Given there is less than 60 days to go to that right now, no-deal is the best deal, getting out with a clean break Brexit and after we will get a trade deal.”
