How do you kick EU ‘bastards’out,asks Boris Johnson-The problem is ‘we don’t really know who is running the EU-millions of UK people have no idea how their system works. It’s completely cut off to them.”


“My objection to the EU was not that it was run by foreigners,” Johnson

The problem with the EU is ‘we don’t really know who is running it,’ said the former UK foreign secretary.

It is not clear who runs the EU or how to “kick those particular bastards out,” said former U.K. Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson.


Saying he could not identify the people in charge of the EU’s institutions, or explain what they do, Johnson continued, “I have no idea how to kick those particular bastards out.”

He was quick to clarify: “I’m not saying they are bastards. But millions and millions of people in the U.K. have no idea how the system works. It’s completely cut off to them.”

Johnson said he doesn’t think a second Brexit referendum is possible because the public would be “driven absolutely round the bend by the idea of having to vote on this thing again.”

Johnson said the “Treasury and the whole system” are afraid of a hard Brexit. But unless the U.K. has autonomy over tariffs and regulation, he said, “unless you have the freedom, then stay in. I don’t think the U.K. is going to stay in or that the U.K. should stay in.”
