In an exclusive interview with Express.co.uk, Piers Morgan claimed Boris Johnson “hasn’t got a clue” what is going on in the current post-Brexit trade talks with the EU. The GMB host was concerned with the lack of progress and was surprised a deal had not yet been reached, considering the Prime Minister previously boasted about having an “oven-ready Brexit deal”.
When discussing the current state of negotiations, Mr Morgan told this website: “I don’t think Boris Johnson has a clue what he’s going to do.”
The journalist also said, while he hopes the UK secures a deal with the EU, he doesn’t think a no deal outcome would make much of a difference for the UK.
He said: “I don’t think Brexit is that big of a deal now compared to where we were in January.
“I think the general scheme of economic mayhem that is going on with this pandemic, I don’t think it particularly matters if we end up with a deal without a deal.

“There are going to be much bigger problems to concern us with.”
But Mr Morgan was surprised a deal had not yet been reached with the EU, after the Prime Minister announced he had an “oven-ready Brexit deal” last year.
Mr Johnson first made the claim in October 2019, and then repeated the slogan throughout the election campaign.
