Alan Johnson MP, Chair of Labour In for Britain, responding to comments from Boris Johnson, said:
“This is a major admission from Boris Johnson that there would be a downturn following Britain pulling out of Europe. He is playing fast and loose with people’s jobs, with no clue over what he actually wants for Britain.
“Last week he was Out to stay In, now he’s Out to be Out, admitting this would be a major blow to our economy. When he’s finished doing the Hokey Cokey, perhaps he’d come clean with people about how bad it would be."
