Demagogues like Johnson and Farage, in total irresponsibility, created chaos, lied to people, made promises they couldn’t keep and now ran away into the undergrowth. “We insist that the British clarify their position as soon as possible and start exit negotiations. We cannot give them any concessions because others will then demand the same.”
