Boris Johnson ignored results of David Cameron’s EU renegotiation, say Brussels officials

    Even as the European Commission insisted that it would keep out of Britain’s referendum campaign, Brussels officials were privately scathing about some of Boris Johnson’s claims as he set out his reasons for supporting Britain’s departure from the EU. Mr Johnson suggested British sovereignty was at risk from plans being hatched to bolster the single currency through closer integration, including budgetary union; but officials dismissed this as one of the very issues addressed in David Cameron’s weekend agreement. “The deal confirms the rights of all non-euro members, and also says that Britain need not be part of ‘ever-closer union’,” said one. “On that score, Boris has clearly ignored the results of Cameron’s renegotiation.” Mr Johnson also complained that just 4 per cent...

Tory truce collapses as David Cameron attacks Boris reg EU referendum

    The Conservative truce over the European Union referendum on Monday collapsed as the Prime Minister attacked Boris Johnson and Cabinet ministers openly criticised one another. In a sign of the deepening divisions over the in-out referendum, David Cameron used a Commons appearance to openly condemn Mr Johnson, who on Sunday announced that he would campaign to take Britain of the EU. Mr Cameron suggested that Mr Johnson made his decision simply in order to further his own ambition to become prime minister. He also described as "for the birds" an apparent suggestion by Mr Johnson that Britain could vote to leave the EU before negotiating a better settlement with Brussels. The Prime Minister is said to be "livid" with Mr Johnson, who on Monday indicated that Mr Cameron and his...
