Johnson’s backstop alternative is not realistic – Donald Tusk

Reading Time: 1 minute

Donald Tusk responded to Boris Johnson’s call to drop the Irish backstop from any Brexit deal, saying that anyone “not proposing realistic alternatives” to the backstop does “in fact support reestablishing a border. Even if they do not admit it.”

In a tweet he wrote “The backstop is an insurance to avoid a hard border on the island of Ireland unless and until an alternative is found. Those against the backstop and not proposing realistic alternatives in fact support reestablishing a border. Even if they do not admit it.”
