"It's not too late to save Brexit", Johnson tells UK parliament

LONDON, July 18 (Reuters) - Boris Johnson, Britain’s former foreign secretary who quit in protest at Theresa May’s plan for leaving the European Union, urged parliament on Wednesday to rethink its strategy, adding that the country would never get the chance to get it right again.

“It is not too late to save Brexit,” he said as he delivered his resignation speech. “We have time in these negotiations, we have changed tack once and we can change again.

“The problem is not that we failed to make the case for a Free Trade Agreement of the kind spelt out (by May) at Lancaster House, we haven’t even tried. We must try now because we will not get another chance to get it right.” (Reporting by Andrew MacAskill; writing by Kate Holton; editing by Stephen Addison)
