In the past, Boris Johnson was one of the few people in the country to enthusiastically argue for Turkey to become a member of the EU.
Boris’s own words from a 2007 extract in the Telegraph:
“What would be better for the long-term health of the planet – a Turkey increasingly apathetic about Europe … or one firmly entrenched in the European Union? I know what I want. So why does everyone hesitate? Should they be barred, by their alien “culture”, from living here? We would be crazy to reject Turkey.”
Can’t see that going down too well with Boris’s new colleagues Farage and co.
