2. SOUNDBITE (English) Boris Johnson, Former UK Foreign Secretary:
"I don't think that there is any mileage for the Prime Minister or for the government, in trying to do a deal here with Labour because they will just try to trap Theresa May. They will just try and do a deal that is toxic and that has disastrous effects on the Conservative Party, and worse still, of course, (Jeremy) Corbyn's proposal would keep us locked in the Customs Union, locked in much of the single market forever, and therefore Brexit, the promise that was made to the British people, of coming out of the EU institutions, would be broken. If we are going to stay in the customs union, and the single market and you have people round the table in Brussels, there is a name for that, isn't there? It's called 'being in the EU'. So if Corbyn wants to do that, I think that isn't the way forward. On your point about the deadline, and could we have a time-limit - I think it must be pretty obvious that if you are going to have a time-limit to the backstop, and I think that would be a very good thing, it's got to fall before the next election. There is no point in having a time-limit to the backstop, some years after the next general election. And as I say, there has got to be a way that the UK can come out unilaterally."
Boris Johnson warned UK Prime Minister Theresa May of making a deal with the Labour Party on Brexit, saying that the opposition would try to trap Theresa May in a "toxic" deal.
"Corbyn's proposal would keep us locked in the Customs Union, locked in much of the single market forever", added Johnson.
The former UK Foreign Secretary was speaking at the Henry Jackson Society in London on Monday, where he joined Conservative MP Bob Seely to launch the Global Britain report, which includes a foreword by Johnson.
