2. SOUNDBITE (English) Boris Johnson, UK Foreign Secretary:
"I think you'll agree it's absolutely right that we all decided to continue with this campaign in spite of the appalling events in London. We cannot let our democracy be halted by terrorism."
3. SOUNDBITE (English) Boris Johnson, UK Foreign Secretary:
"It is a moment of hope and opportunity and I can assure you that there are plenty of people in Brussels and indeed some in this country who have spent night and day since June the 23rd dreaming, hoping, scheming and plotting that they will be able to reverse that decision. And I ask you do we want them to frustrate the will of the people?
4. SOUNDBITE (English) Boris Johnson, UK Foreign Secretary:
"Taking back control of our cash. Can you imagine Jeremy Corbyn having the grit and determination to take back control of the 10 billion (pounds) net, 20 billion gross, that we send to Brussels every year? Do you think he has the firmness of purpose to do it? A guy who sends out a signal to all would-be terrorists that he disapproves of shoot-to-kill, even when those terrorists are threatening unarmed civilians. A guy who preemptively informs any power that wishes to engage in nuclear blackmail that as our prime minister he, Corbyn, would not under any circumstances deploy Trident, so making a nonsense of our nuclear deterrent."
5. SOUNDBITE (English) Boris Johnson, UK Foreign Secretary:
"He has taken the side of just about every adversary this country has had in my lifetime. From the IRA to Hamas, from Soviet communism to General Galtieri for heaven's sake, and of course I don't mean to compare our European friends to any of those people, but it is psychologically impossible to imagine him having the grip or the firmness to get the right Brexit deal for this country. A Corbyn negotiating team would arrive in Brussels like a family of herbivores at the watering hole of the lions. They'd be eaten for breakfast."
6. SOUNDBITE (English) Boris Johnson, UK Foreign Secretary:
"We Conservatives took Britain into what was then called the Common Market not because we especially enjoyed the idea of losing our sovereignty, in fact we were always anxious about that, but because we are always, and have been, the true internationalists and when we joined in 1972 it felt as if being international meant being in the Common Market. Do you remember? And 45 years later it's time to do even more, it's time to lift our eyes to the horizons, to a wider horizon, and we believe it's this country's destiny to engage not just with our friends and partners in the EU (European Union) but with the whole of the rest of the world, the 93 percent of humanity that does not live in the EU, as well as those that do."
7. SOUNDBITE (English) Boris Johnson, UK Foreign Secretary:
"If we are to make the most of that opportunity then we need the right economic policies and it makes me shudder to think that we could be seriously about to elect a Corbyn-lead administration that would oppose destructive new taxes on businesses, on homes, on gardens, at the very moment, when we should be about to go forward with a great new global Britain. Corbyn would take us back to the 1970s, complete with a loony-left and union control."
British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said the prospect of Labour Party chief Jeremy Corbyn becoming the country's next leader in the June 8 elections, makes him "shudder."
Johnson was addressing the Conservative Party supporters on Tuesday at a rally in County Durham, urging them to make a final push for victory in the upcoming general elections.
The foreign secretary said it was right to continue with the elections campaign, after a temporary halt following Saturday's terror attack in London in which seven people were killed and scores injured.
"We cannot let our democracy be halted by terrorism," Johnson said.
He said Brexit represents "a moment of hope and opportunity" for the country, adding there are plenty in Brussels and in the UK "who have spent night and day plotting to reverse the decision."
Johnson said only the Conservatives were "willing to stick up for the democratic will of the British people"
He said if Jeremy Corbyn was to lead the Brexit negotiations he would be "eaten for breakfast" by Brussels officials.
"A Labour negotiating team would arrive in Brussels like a family of herbivores at a watering hole of lions," Johnson said.
