The comments were made by former UKIP deputy chairwoman Suzanne Evans, now an activist for pro-Brexit group Leave Means Leave. Mr Johnson has repeatedly insisted Brexit will take place on October 31 even if a formal exit deal can’t be agreed with the EU. However opposition parties, and some of his own backbenchers, may attempt to block any bid to leave without an exit agreement.
Speaking to Express.co.uk Ms Evans said: “I’ve always had a lot of time for Boris, I’ve always thought he’s a man who an be respected.
“He’s very bright, very erudite, very committed to the country.
“But I do meet people who say he can’t be trusted, a lot of people who claim to know him say that.
“The way I feel is he’s absolutely nailed his colours to the mast now about leaving the European Union on October 31, not a minute longer should we stay in that awful club.
“Whether you personally might trust him or not I think he’s backed himself into a corner – if he needed to be backed into it which personally I don’t think he did.”
Parliament could pass a motion of no confidence in the Government in a bid to block a no deal Brexit.
This would likely lead to a General Election, unless an anti-Brexit ‘Government of national unity’ could be formed.
There are concerns the Brexit backing vote could be split in such a poll between the Conservatives and the Brexit Party.
BORIS JOHNSON will take the UK out of the EU on October 31 as promised according to a leading Brexit campaigner, who argued the Prime Minister has “backed himself into a corner” and must deliver the result of the 2016 referendum.
