This clip of Boris Johnson talking about the single market hasn’t aged well

Despite describing it as a million-to-one chance, the new prime Minister, Boris Johnson, seems not only willing but likely to take the UK out of the EU without agreeing a withdrawal deal. This move would mean leaving the single market and customs union, making this speech at the Institute for Public Policy Research somewhat embarrassing.

The clip, shared by Boris Johnson parody account, @BorisJohnson_MP, really hasn’t aged well, but it has picked up a lot of highly unimpressed responses.

Someone named Alan Bourke summed up the speech – and all his other speeches.

If anything, it’s slightly too eloquent.
