Ineos boss: 'Sense of humour' needed in Brexit talks

The pro-Brexit founder and chairman of chemical company Ineos has told BBC Hardtalk’s Stephen Sackur, the UK can have a great future outside the European Union if it can keep its "backbone” in the tough negotiations to come.

There was a need for a pragmatic negotiation explained Jim Ratcliffe.

“We are not going to win everything, but we should win the important points because we have some very good cards in my view,” he said.
