LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Thursday tempers needed to calm down and that getting Brexit resolved would “lance the boil” after a vitriolic confrontation with lawmakers in parliament a day earlier.

“We do need to bring people together and get this thing done,” he told BBC TV.

“Tempers need to calm down and people need to come together because it is only by getting Brexit done that you will actually lance the boil of the current anxiety.”
