Boris Johnson has been booked to give a £75-a-head Brexit talk just three days before the UK officially leaves the European Union.
The former Mayor and Foreign Secretary will discuss issues such as the Irish backstop, customs union, transition period and Article 50 at the event in Westminster’s Central Hall.
Billed as a “conversation” with former Editor and columnist Charles Moore, he will deliver his thoughts on Brexit in a “unique event” presented by The Telegraph’s Editor, Chris Evans.
Early reaction on social media suggests there is lukewarm appetite to attend the discussion.
One said: “Wait, would he be paying me? In which case, it will cost a lot more than £75.”
While Matthew Mitchell tweeted: “I’d pay the £75 if it got me a clear shot and 75 rotten tomatoes, or eggs, I’m easy either way.”

Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
