Being one of the most respected politicians in the country, he for many months refused to clarify its position on the question of the referendum. According to Reuters, on Sunday, explaining its commitment to the development of the European Union, Johnson said specifically that this is not an element of the struggle for a post of the leader of the conservatives, reports
