Boris is having his Turkey cake and eating it

Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has today backed Turkish membership of the EU, saying: "Britain will remain committed to helping Turkey's path towards accession, helping Turkey in any way possible."

Commenting for Open Britain, Norman Lamb MP said:

“As good as his Turkish washing machine may be, Boris cannot wash away the stains of his Leave campaign’s scaremongering over Turkish accession to the EU.

“Boris is famous for having his cake and eating it, but even by his standards this takes the biscuit.”
