In a recent BBC article, the leading Vote Leave campaigner Boris Johnson has come out and compared the EU’s aims to Hitler’s, saying ”both involved the intention to unify Europe under a single ‘authority’.”
Furthermore, the pro-Brexit Tory MP said both the Nazi leader and Napoleon had ”failed at unification” and the EU was an ”attempt to do this by different methods”.
Labour MP Yvette Cooper, from the Remain campaign, accused the ex-London Mayor of playing “nasty, nasty games”.
Meanwhile, UKIP leader Nigel Farage has backed Mr Johnson to be the next Prime Minister.
What’s your views of Boris Johnson’s remarks?
Is this a fairly valid comparison? or is this judgement completely ludicrous and uncalled for in the vote leaves campaigning? How do you feel other remain campaigners will respond to this?
