Boris Johnson is the former mayor of London and a leading British figure in the campaign for the UK to leave the European Union.Boris Johnson in an interview with British daily Sunday Telegraph wrote:Napoleon, Hitler, various people tried this out, and it ends tragically. The EU is an attempt to do this by different methods.
The last 2,000 years of the European history featured repeated efforts to bring the continent together under a single government, emulating the Roman empire. But fundamentally what is lacking is the eternal problem, which is that there is no underlying loyalty to the idea of Europe. There is no single authority that anybody respects or understands. That is causing this massive democratic void.
