UK PM Johnson eyes parliament vote before Christmas to 'get Brexit done'
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will “get Brexit done” by Jan. 31 and then agree a new trade deal with the European Union by the end of 2020, cabinet office minister Michael Gove said on Sunday, vowing to deliver on the government’s top priority.
Johnson and his team were triumphant last week when he won a commanding majority of 80 at an early election he said he was forced to call to break the Brexit deadlock. Winning over many traditionally Labour voters in northern and central England, Johnson has proclaimed he will lead a “people’s government”.
First, the Conservative leader must make good on his often-repeated promise to “get Brexit done” and then turn to realizing another priority - to increase funding into Britain’s much loved but struggling public health service, a pledge he plans to enshrine in law.
