BORIS V JUNCKER: Top Tory lashes out at EU for DAMAGING Britain as WAR OF WORDS heats up

Boris-Johnson-674305

BORIS Johnson has urged top Eurocrat Jean-Claude Juncker to visit Britain to see how it has been "damaged" by the EU.

Earlier this week Juncker invited Brexit campaigner Johnson to come to Brussels following a string of anti-EU remarks.

Juncker claimed Johnson's frequent attacks on the bloc – including a comparison to Adolf Hitler – were not "in line with reality".

The ex-London mayor last night took up Juncker's suggestion – but not without directing another barb at the official.

Speaking on the campaign trial, Vote Leave activist Johnson said: "I would also like to extend an invitation to you.

"Many parts of Britain – many families and small businesses – have been damaged by our EU membership.

"It would be wonderful if you could visit some of these places and meet some of those people with me."

Juncker made the invitation after Johnson compared the EU's efforts to unify Europe to earlier attempts by Hitler.

The Eurocrat told reporters at the G7 summit: "It's time for him to come back to Brussels [where he worked as a journalist].

"I don't think everything he's telling British people is in line with reality – he would be welcome at any time."

The level of irritation at the Commission over Johnson’s criticism was revealed in a tweet by an aide to Juncker.

Martin Selmayr classed Johnson alongside Donald Trump and Marine Le Pen in a "horror scenario" of potential world leaders.

The social media post sparked outrage, with leading Eurosceptics accusing him of bulldozing into British democracy.
