Ex-foreign secretary Boris Johnson tells Sky’s Beth Rigby why he stands by his controversial comments on women wearing burkas and why the Chequers deal is like a ‘suicide vest’ for the UK.

The interview comes after he put forward an alternative Brexit plan, which he called a ‘Super Canada’ option.

He told Sky News: “I think you’ll find invariably that there is an element of confected indignation about things that I’ve said that are wrenched out of context.”

Foreign office minister Sir Alan Duncan said his “suicide vest” comment was one of “the most disgusting moments in British politics” and was the “political end” of Mr Johnson.

However, he did become the latest Tory to back Sky News’ Make Debates Happen campaign.
