Boris Johnson has said the Brexit “dream is dying” in his resignation letter just hours after he quit his post as Foreign Secretary in protest against Theresa May’s Brexit plan.
Mr Johnson wrote: "Brexit should be about opportunity and hope. It should be a chance to do things different, to be more nimble and dynamic, and to maximise the particular advantages of the UK being an open, outward-looking global economy.
Mr Johnson goes on to comment about the jurisdiction of European Union laws within the letter and how they affect UK domestic law, commenting on specifically the safety of cyclers.
Mr Johnson says that the UK was previously told to wait for the EU to legislate on laws surrounding cycling before enacting any changes.
The MP for Uxbridge and South Ruislip added that Britain appeared to be “heading for a semi-Brexit” and would take on “the status of a colony” under her plans.
"It is more than two years since the British people voted to leave the European Union on an unambiguous and categorical promise that if they did so they would be taking back control of their democracy.
"They were told they would be able to manage their own immigration policy, repatriate sums of UK cash currently spent by the EU, and, above all, that they would be able to pass laws independently and in the interests of the people of this country.
"Brexit should be about opportunity and hope. It should be a chance to do things differently, to be more nimble and dynamic, and to maximise the particular advantages of the UK as an open, outward-looking global economy.
