In an interview with BBC Radio earlier today, former British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson noted that the UK government needs to secure changes to Brexit deal’s Irish border backstop such as a time limit and an exit mechanism, Reuters reports.

Key Quotes:

“Some of the ideas that the prime minister has mentioned in the House do seem sensible.”

“I think you would need a time limit.”

“I think I would want to look very carefully at what was being proposed and it would have to give the United Kingdom a UK-sized exit from the backstop.” 

“The most promising way forward is to do what is called the Malthouse compromise. The exciting thing about this is that it actually has the support of colleagues on both sides.”
