UK: Boris Johnson compares EU’s aims to Hitler’s

The former London mayor and conservative MP Boris Johnson makes fresh criticism to EU.  Speaking to Sunday Telegraph, he said European history had seen repeated attempts to rediscover the “golden age of peace and prosperity under the Romans”.

“Napoleon, Hitler, various people tried this out, and it ends tragically. The EU is an attempt to do this by different methods,” he said.

“But fundamentally what is lacking is the eternal problem, which is that there is no underlying loyalty to the idea of Europe.

“There is no single authority that anybody respects or understands. That is causing this massive democratic void.”

Rejecting Johnson’s analysis, Shadow Foreign Secretary Hillary Benn said: “Leave campaigners have lost the economic argument and now they are losing their moral compass.

 

“To try and compare Hitler and the Nazis – the millions of people who died in the Second World War, the Holocaust – with the free democracies of Europe coming together to trade and co-operate, and in the process to help to bring peace to the continent of Europe after centuries of war, is frankly deeply offensive.”

Latest opinion polls suggest 50-50 for both sides.

Conclusion: The fierce fight goes on.
