LONDON (Reuters) – Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Wednesday Britain could deal with its economy in “a creative and constructive way” after a status quo transition with the European Union finishes at the end of this year.
“I think the people of this country are heartily sick of going on about Brexit … When we get to the end of the transition period, we will be able to do things differently, we will be able to respond to our economic needs in a creative and constructive way, looking at regulation and looking at ways in which we support industries in a way that we haven’t been able to do before,” Johnson told parliament.
“Let’s not delay that moment, let’s get on with it.”
