November 29, 2019


 Boris Johnson told the BBC Question Time audience that Brexit is “paralysing Parliament” and it needs to be done before the UK economy can move forward He said: “When you look at what I promised on the steps on Downing Street a few months ago, I promised we would put 20,000 more police officers on the streets – they’re coming there I’ve talked to them, they are being recruited now.” He continued: “I said that we would put the biggest ever cash boost into the NHS and it is happening  “We are doing 20 hospital upgrades and 40 new hospitals. “To get to all the points that have been raised, I understand things have been tough in the NHS and I understand the pressures the NHS is under  “I know the massive demand that the NHS faces but we can only meet that demand if we have a dynamic economy and I’m afraid we won’t get this economy moving again until we get Brexit done   “At the moment that is hanging over us, it is paralysing Parliament and to get back to your trust point, that is in my view the single biggest corrosion of trust in politics  “People voted three and a half years ago for their will to be respected.” The audience applauded his points as he continued to highlight the Brexit issue  Mr Johnson said: “Every other party that you’ve had on tonight is just trying to frustrate that outcome  “We had a deal and it’s a great deal. “It’s there, it’s ready to go, as I never tire of saying, oven-ready  “It will enable us to have 2020 as a year of prosperity and growth. That’s what I want to see ” In the show, the Prime Minister defended his decision to call a general election on December 12 and insisted he “had to do it” because “Parliament is blocking Brexit”    Trending  During the BBC Question Time show from Sheffield, Mr Johnson was questioned on whether a win for the Tories at the election would give him a mandate for Brexit  Mr Johnson said: “On your point about the reasons for having an election, let’s be in no doubt, I didn’t want to have an election  “No Prime Minister wants to have an election on December 12. “We had to do it because Parliament is blocking Brexit ”
