MANCHESTER, England (AP) The U.K. will offer the European Union a proposed Brexit deal today that represents a compromise for both sides, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said as he urged the bloc to meet Britain halfway and allow for the countrys orderly departure after years of wrangling.
Johnsons speech to Conservative Party members at their annual conference had been billed by his office as a take-it-or-leave-it final offer to the EU. Yet as delivered, it was more like a plea to the bloc, and to Britons, to end more than three years of acrimonious wrangling over the terms of the U.K.s exit from the EU.
Lets get Brexit done, was the repeated refrain to delegates at the conference in Manchester, northwest England.
