Former Brexit Party MEP Ben Habib snapped as he criticised Boris Johnson’s attitudes towards Brexit. While speaking to Martin Daubney and Belinda de Lucy on Brexit Unlocked, Mr Habib complained Boris Johnson failed to paint a clear, positive Brexit Britain picture. He also explained the many benefits and opportunities Britain has after cutting ties with the EU.
He said he was tired of speaking with the European Union on Brexit and insisted Boris Johnson should have fulfilled his promises by walking away from the negotiating table.
Mr Habib said: “What is there to negotiate?
“We have got our red lines and if the EU is not prepared to grant us our red lines that by the way merely require us to get our sovereignty back, we should have walked out of the room.
“Boris Johnson said we would leave on the 30th of June if they wouldn’t give us what we want, he didn’t.

“He then said the end of July and we never walked, he then said the 15th of October and they still haven’t given us what we want.
“We are still talking to them, I am sick of talking.”
Mr Habib also insisted Boris Johnson should have highlighted the most positive aspects of Brexit throughout his premiership.
He added the Prime Minister should be routinely painting a picture of the bright future ahead for the UK.
He said: “We don’t need them, we voted to leave because we think there is a brighter future outside of the European Union.
“We don’t want to stand in their hanging on to their flipping coat tails hoping they will grant us some minuscule degree of sovereignty.”
Mr Habib also highlighted all the positive changes he wanted to see in Brexit Britain.
He said: “I want out, I want our £18billion a year back and I want to levy tariffs on them.

“I want to trade freely with the rest of the world.
“I want to deregulate, I don’t want any new green revolution, I want to get rid of those blooming environmental laws that come across from the EU.
“I want to reduce tax on fuel and I want the poor and working-class of this country to be re-energised.
