Speaking following meetings Boris Johnson has had this week with Angela Merkel and Emmanuel Macron, Liberal Democrat Shadow Brexit Secretary Tom Brake said:
"Boris Johnson has had a disastrous and pointless trip to France and Germany, during which he has achieved precisely nothing.
"It feels like Groundhog Day. Mr Johnson has heard the simple facts of Brexit just as Theresa May before him.
"The backstop is not going anywhere. The reality is that the UK already has the best deal possible as members of the EU.
"People are tired of the chaos and false promises and need to be given the final say on Brexit with the option to remain in the EU."
