Boris wants early EU vote
An in-out referendum on the UK’s relationship with the European Union should be held before 2015, Boris Johnson has said.
The Mayor of London has previously called for the public to be consulted on EU, and today said he would like the opportunity to campaign for the UK to be part of the single market but with no further integration.
But Mr Johnson was sceptical about the likelihood of a vote being held before the next general election.
“I think it would be a good idea if they did it before 2015, it would be fantastic. But I can’t see them doing it before 2015. But all this will be revealed in a speech that is forthcoming,” he told the Andrew Marr Show.
The Mayor also reiterated that he did not feel it would be "the end of the world" if Britain elected to leave the European Union.
