Johnson says he wants to see drug gangs from the county lines ‘totally’
There were several news lines in that interview, but perhaps the most surprising line came when Johnson announced that he wanted to end drug trafficking on the country lines. No one will question the merits of his ambition, but he is making a promise that will be very difficult to fulfill.
This is what he said on the subject.
I want to see the crime fall. I want to see the county lines that the drug gangs finished, rolled up. They are reducing the quality of life of people across the country, they are killing young children. I want to see that thing totally finished.
Q: Will Ann Secoulas, the US diplomat accused of killing Harry Dunn in a car accident, face justice?
Johnson says it is unlikely that the United States will send it back to the United Kingdom. That is not what they do.
Q: Will Huawei be allowed to participate in the construction of the 5G infrastructure?
Johnson says the British deserve the best infrastructure available. But it will not compromise security.
Q: When will we see the ISC report on the elections in Russia and the United Kingdom?

After some questions about Iran, Walker asks about Harry and Meghan.
Johnson says he is confident that the royal family can solve this.
But they can solve it more easily without the interference of politicians.
Good Morning. British political life in 2020 continues to accelerate today, starting later this morning with the Prime Minister’s first sitting interview since the general elections.
Just arrived from his appearance in Northern Ireland, where he enjoyed the moment of well-being generated by the agreement that paved the way for the resumption of the distribution of power in Storming, Boris Johnson will answer questions from the BBC on Downing Street in no time.
While he eluded funding questions to underpin the historic agreement in Belfast, he promised government support to the revived executive of Northern Ireland’s shared power.
However, not everything is resolved, as Sinn Féin assembly member in Northern Ireland and Stormont finance minister Conor Murphy warned that the government’s offer of extra money as part of the agreement to restore the executive “does not fulfill what was promised”
Perhaps even more pressing, in the absence of 17 days for Brexit, he will also face questions about the type of negotiation that the United Kingdom is willing to conduct on that front.
In an outstanding intervention last night during Gavin Barwell’s inaugural address in the House of Lords, the former chief of staff of Theresa May warned that there was no possibility of the government agreeing on a new trade agreement with the EU by the end of the year.
Meanwhile, the race for Labor leadership continues today after the candidates went on to the next round of the contest: Keir Starmer, Rebecca Long-Bailey, Lisa Nandy, Jess Phillips and Emily Thornberry.
