Speaking on the Brexit Unlocked podcast, hosts and former Brexit Party MEPs Martin Daubney and Belinda DeLucy discussed the latest Brexit trade negotiations with ex-MEP Ben Habib. He warned that Boris Johnson has not stuck to his Brexit promises. He said: “Will the Prime Minister stick with his work and call of negotiations with the EU?

“Or will he do what he did last year when he said he’d rather be dead in a ditch than not leave on October 31 and fail to meet that deadline?

“Or will he do what he said earlier this year which is that we would cease negotiations on June 30 if a deal hadn’t been reached? Which then became the end of July and then became the end of September.

“And if he does a deal, tomorrow or some other time, will he stick to the promise that we will grant no more than annual quotas to the EU determined by the UK at its own discretion in our fishing waters?

“Will he stick to his promise that we will not align with the EU state aid law and there will be no level playing field between the UK and the EU?

“So far the indications are that he won’t.

“It seems to me that this Prime Minister is making promises he doesn’t intend to keep.

“You have to remeber that back in August law year the Prime Minister said the withdrawal agreement was dead, that we would never pay £39billion over for getting nothing in return.

“That it would be unconscionable for the British Prime Minister to put a border down thr Irish sea.

“Well he’s done all three of those things.

“Can we rely on the Prime Minister now to put right what is wrong in the withdrawal agreement, call off negotiations tomorrow as he said he would and give the UK the Brexit it deserves?”

His comments come as Mr Johnson has expressed his “disappointment” that talks with the EU on a post-Brexit trade deal have not made more progress, Downing Street has said.

In a call with European Commission president Ursula von der Leyen and European Council president Charles Michel, the Prime Minister said he will reflect on the outcome of this week’s EU’s summit before setting out the UK’s next steps.

Mr Johnson has previously suggested he would walk away from the negotiating table if there was no agreement on a trade deal by the time of the two-day summit meeting in Brussels starting on Thursday.

Following the call, a No 10 spokesman said: “The Prime Minister noted the desirability of a deal, but expressed his disappointment that more progress had not been made over the past two weeks.

“The Prime Minister said that he looked forward to hearing the outcome of the European Council and would reflect before setting out the UK’s next steps in the light of his statement of September 7.”
