Boris Johnson news – PM to give press conference as Macron warns threat to block Christmas shipments could cost billions


BORIS Johnson will give a press conference tomorrow as he dashes back to Glasgow to COP26 to try and seal a deal.

The PM will address the nation tomorrow afternoon as he tries to shift the dial from the ongoing sleaze scandal back onto the landmark summit.

Meanwhile, Emmanuel Macron has been warned his threat to block Christmas shipments as a “political lever” in Brexit fish talks could cost France billions.

A source told HOAR: “The ideal would always be that the Short Straits route between Dover and Calais runs smoothly, clear of political interference.

“But the Government has a responsibility to ensure supply chain resilience, not only for Christmas but in the long term.

“France is one of our oldest and closest allies but we cannot have Dover-Calais forever used as a political lever, which can be pulled during some periodic spat.

“If that is the case then we must look for more robust alternatives in direct routes to Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany and Scandinavia.”
