Follow the day’s political developments as they happen, including the foreign secretary’s ‘road to Brexit’ speech at 11am
The Tory MEP, Daniel Hannan, who was a founding member of Vote Leave, has said Boris Johnson is aiming his speech at those who feel “alienated and angry” about the EU referendum result. Speaking to Radio 4’s Today programme, he said:
[Johnson] knows that a number of people feel kind of alienated and angry about the result and that’s not something that any leaver should feel good about.
We want to try and carry as many people with us, it was a narrow outcome, it was a 48/52 vote that means we should try and find a consensus that both sides can at least live with.
Labour’s former home secretary, Yvette Cooper, has been discussing Boris Johnson’s forthcoming speech, dismissing the foreign secretary as unworthy of the public’s trust. She has told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme:
To be honest, given everything he said about that bus, I don’t really see why we’re taking him seriously at all.
The problem with that is, from the point of view of a committee chair, we’ve got this speech being made which doesn’t seem to set out any detail. The government cannot keep kicking the can down the road, we’ve got to actually have some practical details on it.
