Follow the day’s political developments as they happen, including the foreign secretary’s ‘road to Brexit’ speech at 11am
That concludes the foreign secretary’s speech.
Jean-Claude Juncker, the president of the European commission, said it was “total nonsense” to claim that he wanted to build a European superstate. Some in the British political establishment were “pretending that I am a stupid stubborn federalist” he said when asked to respond to the Johnson speech.
I am strictly against a European superstate. We are not the United States of America, we are the European Union … the European Union cannot be built against European nations.
