Heseltine on Brexit.
Lord Michael Heseltine said Boris Johnson got Britain into the Brexit mess and he should be the one to negotiate our way out of it.
The Tory grandee wouldn’t say who he wanted to replace David Cameron as Prime Minister - but he was clear he wouldn’t be backing Boris .
He told the BBC: “It’s chilling really, because the British people have been sold a deceitful pup.
"We were told by the Brexit campaign that we’d be alright because the Europeans are desperate to keep us in.
“The truth is the Europeans have said “On your bike. You took the trouble to make this decision, we aren’t negotiating.”
Lord Heseltine for a second vote on whether Britain should leave the EU - either another referendum or a General Election - after we know what the terms of Brexit would be.”
