LONDON, JUNE 12 - "My goal is not a no-deal", but no deal must remain on the table as a "last resort". Thus Boris Johnson responding to the media in his first public event of the race for the post Theresa May. "It is a vital negotiating tool" to seek "a much better deal than the current one," says Johnson, insisting that "the best way to avoid (a divorce without an agreement is to prepare" and that in any case a further postponement of the exit from the EU "means defeat, means Jeremy Corbyn" to the government.
