BORIS Johnson has lashed out at Barack Obama’s “ridiculous and weird” arguments for Britain to remain in the European Union.

The London Mayor and Brexit figurehead hit out at Obama’s claim that leaving the EU would put Britain “at the back of the queue” when it came to trading with the US.

Firing back at the US leader, Mr Johnson told the Daily Mail: “Barack Obama is entitled to his view and he is an honoured guest, but it is ridiculous to warn that the UK will be at the back of the queue for a free trade deal.

“The UK has never been able to do a free trade deal with the US in the last 43 years – because we are in the EU!

“Any negotiations are entirely in the hands of the European Commission and only 3.6 per cent of commission officials actually come from this country.

Mr Johnson went on to blame the “absurd” issues that have scuppered European attempts to trade with America in the past.

He added: “Negotiations are held up by absurd problems like the French restrictions on Hollywood movies or Greek hostility to American feta cheese.”
