BORIS JOHNSON has claimed Brexit will be delayed for “years” if Jeremy Corbyn becomes Prime Minister and has written an open letter to the leader of the opposition setting out five questions the Labour leader must answer.

The Prime Minister said voters deserve to have a “clear picture” of what would happen if Labour won power, accusing him of nothing more than “confusion and indecision”

As posted on Boris Johnson’s Facebook page: “Tonight I have written to Jeremy Corbyn to ask him if he has made up his mind on Brexit…The British people deserve to know what they are voting for on December 12th.”

The five questions put forward are:

1. Do you believe the result of the 2016 referendum should be respected and the UK should leave the EU?

2. Is the Labour Party’s policy to keep the UK in the customs union and would it end free movement in any deal it negotiates?

3. Would you commit to campaigning for your “deal” in a second referendum?

4. What is your supposed timetable to renegotiate a new deal and then hold a second referendum? How much taxpayers’ money will you spend on holding this unwanted second referendum in 2020 and would this comply with Electoral Commission guidance on holding referendums?

5. You rightly claim (for now at least) that the Liberal Democrat and SNP plan to revoke Article 50 is extreme – but if there is a hung Parliament you will depend on their votes. Will you confirm that, if there is a hung Parliament, you would never be willing to revoke Article 50?

“…The voting public await your answers with interest…”
