Johnson: Time to prepare for no-deal Brexit

United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson asserted on Friday it is time for the country to "get ready" for exiting the European Union without reaching a trade deal with Brussels.

"Unless there's a fundamental change of approach, we should go for the Australia solution," the prime minister stated in a televised speech, accusing the bloc's leaders of "abandoning" the ambition to agree on the trade deal. "What we're saying to them is come here, come to us, if there's some fundamental change of approach," Johnson underscored.

The EU wants to have the United Kingdom under control in an "unacceptable" way, he explained, adding that the country can "prosper mightily" without the agreement.
