Boris: Britain would be ‘the frog in the boiling saucepan of water’
Boris Johnson has said Britain would be “the frog in the boiling saucepan of water” if voters choose to remain in the EU in June.
In an interview with the Evening Standard, he said: “We will never be able credibly to argue for any reform in Europe again,” he warned, adding Britain would be “the frog in the boiling saucepan of water”. He went on: “We will be signed up to this thing lock, stock and barrel — hook, line and sinker.”
Mr Johnson said relations with the Prime Minister were “always friendly”.
Asked about Mr Cameron’s attack on him in the Commons Mr Johnson claimed: “I didn’t actually notice. I was so wrapped up in meditation on the European treaties that I’m afraid, whatever it was, passed me by.”
