Boris Johnson has told MPs he has produced a “genuine try to bridge the chasm” with the EU by generating compromises to strike a fresh Brexit deal.

The British Prime Minister told the Commons right now that his proposals do not provide all his departure desires but insisted they are greater choices than to “remain a prisoner” of the present circumstance.

But he acknowledged in his statement a day following he shared his proposals with Brussels that they are “some way from a resolution”.

Mr Johnson urged MPs to “come with each other in the national interest behind this new deal”, but initial he should get it passed by the EU, with reactions from European leaders so far becoming cool.

“This Government’s objective has usually been to leave with a deal and these constructive and affordable proposals show our seriousness of goal,” the PM mentioned.

“They do not provide almost everything that we would’ve wished, they do represent a compromise, but to stay a prisoner of current positions is to come to be a lead to of deadlock rather than breakthrough.

“So we have produced a genuine try to bridge the chasm, to reconcile the apparently irreconcilable and to go the additional mile as time runs quick.”
