Boris Johnson makes light of 'semi-parodic' pro-EU column (Boris Johnson wrote a Pro-EU Article in February)
Boris Johnson, a leading figure in the 'Brexit' campaign, wrote an article in favor of the UK's EU membership in February of this year. The article was recently published by 'The Sunday Times'. Mr Johnson publicly backed the 'Brexit' movement only a few days after the piece was written. When questioned by reporters, he claimed that the piece was in part to help him to understand both sides of the issue, and in part to help him come to the correct decision. He expressed surprise that the article had surfaced. Opponents have used this opportunity to demonstrate that the 'Brexit' leadership deceived the public with regard to the level of thought and consideration they utilized in their campaign over such an important decision.
