Boris Johnson has claimed the European Union is not acting in “good faith” during talks over a post-Brexit trade agreement, labelling Brussels negotiators “abusive”.

The prime minister said his proposed breach of international law is a matter of “ring-fencing” the Brexit deal to stop EU trading partners making “abusive or extreme interpretations” of the provisions of the Withdrawal Agreement. 

Meanwhile, presidential candidate Joe Biden issued a warning to the UK government that any future trade deal with the US is “contingent” on respecting the terms of the Good Friday Agreement preventing a hard border on the island of Ireland.
