December 31st According to Reuters and Russian satellite news agencies on the 31st, Stanley Johnson, the father of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, said that he was applying for a French passport to maintain his contact with the European Union after Brexit.
Stanley explained his position in French on a radio program, saying that his mother was born in France and that he should count as French.” This is to get back what I already have… I will always be a European.
People can’t say to the British: You are not European. It is very important to have links with the EU.” He said.
According to the report, Stanley, a former member of the European Parliament, chose to “stay” in the British referendum to leave the European Union in 2016.
At present, the “Brexit” transition period is coming to an end, and the United Kingdom will officially leave the European Union on the evening of the 31st local time.
Prime Minister Johnson once said: “Withing from the EU does not mean that Britain is no longer a European country. In many ways, we are still a typical European civilization…and will always be so.” Overseas Network Zhao Jianxing)
