MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Boris Johnson, who is a former London Mayor and one of the key supporters of the United Kingdom leaving the European Union, said on Tuesday that he would make a TV apology if potential Brexit leads to the economic recession.
"Of course I will… I’m not certain what my political career holds anyway. This is far more important than any individual political career," Johnson said, as quoted by The Guardian, answering a question whether he had enough political courage to apologize if recession followed Brexit.
He added that neither the UK capital, nor the country itself have anything to fear from leaving the 28-nation bloc.
Supporters of the United Kingdom exiting the bloc argue that EU membership has eroded London’s independence to legislate, direct its economy and control its borders. Opponents warn that leaving the European Union could deeply harm the country’s economy.
