LONDON Sept 27: Prime Minister Boris Johnson has refused to back down in the ongoing row over the tone of political debate, saying his controversial remarks were “absolutely reasonable”.

Mr Johnson has come under intense pressure for what have been viewed as divisive remarks made in the Commons chamber.

These have included calling the Benn Act aimed at preventing a no-deal Brexit the “surrender act”, and saying the best way to honour murdered MP Jo Cox is to “get Brexit done”.

But in an interview with the BBC on Thursday, Mr Johnson said: “I think it’s fair enough to call the ‘surrender act’ what it is. I think it’s absolutely reasonable.”
