After quitting, Boris Johnson says Brexit ‘dream is dying’

LONDON, July 9, 2018 (BSS/AFP) – Boris Johnson warned in his resignation letter as foreign secretary Monday that the Brexit “dream is dying” and Britain’s plan to stay close to the EU means it is “headed for the status of colony”.

In the two-page letter to Prime Minister Theresa May, Johnson, a leading Brexit supporter, said that while he initially accepted the government’s plan, it now “sticks in the throat”.
