Reacting to the resignation of UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, S&D president Iratxe García said: 

“Boris Johnson's time in office has strained EU-UK relations to an all-time low. His long overdue resignation must mark a turning point. The UK deserves better than this Tory government. 

“I have a plea to his successor: please stop burning bridges with us, please start building them. The next leader of the Conservative Party will have plenty to learn from the serious damage of Prime Minister Johnson’s irresponsible actions at home and with the EU.

We remain fully committed to a positive relationship between the EU and the UK and this is what citizens on both sides need and deserve.”
