Boris Johnson: UK cannot become vassal state of EU
Failure to ditch EU law would make the United Kingdom a “vassal state,” Johnson said in an interview.
The government must aim to “maximize the benefits of Brexit” by getting divergence from the bloc’s rules so that it could do “proper free trade deals” with other countries.
Johnson told the Sunday Times he would advance the case for a “liberal Brexit” in a new intervention in the debate this week in which he would play up the advantages of leaving the EU. ■
