Johnson vows to 'step up the tempo' of Brexit talks

Johnson vows to 'step up the tempo' of Brexit talks Boris Johnson has said Brexit talks with the European Union will be stepped up in the coming weeks in a bid to secure a new deal. The prime minister's lead negotiator, David Frost, met EU officials this week and agreed to "intensify talks".

Prime minister said migrants from Europe have treated the UK like ‘their own’ country for too long.

Before the conference opened, Ms O'Grady said at a news conference that no-deal would be a disaster for working people.
