I believe I can fix a “bad” deal after Brexit, says Starmer

The United Kingdom left the European Union following a referendum in 2016; the Prime Minister ruled out the possibility of the country returning

The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Keir Starmer (left-wing Labor Party), told journalists this Monday (8.July.2024) that he believes he can fix the trade agreement “Badly done” Signed with the EU after Brexit in 2020.

“We believe we can get a better deal than the failed deal brought home by Boris Johnson and we will work on that.” The Prime Minister said.

Despite criticising the trade rules signed by Johnson, Starmer ruled out the possibility of the country returning to the European bloc. However, Said there is a possibility of removing some trade barriers with the European Union.

The United Kingdom left the European Union after a referendum in 2016 which showed that 52% of Britons wanted to leave the European bloc. Despite the referendum, the transition process was turbulent, with 3 agreements rejected and the departure of 2 Prime Ministers during the process – David Cameron and Theresa May.

This Monday (8 July) journalists also asked the Prime Minister about the possibility of promoting a referendum in Northern Ireland so that the population of the country that is part of the United Kingdom can decide whether to remain part of the British nation.

Starmer was vague in his response and said he would act in accordance with the Belfast Agreement, which states that a referendum can be called by the British government if it appears a majority in Northern Ireland would favour separation from London.
