Boris Johnson: British Jews Among Immigrant Groups Who Have ‘Helped to Make Our National Culture’
In remarks at a Conservative Party hustings on Friday, Boris Johnson hailed British Jews as one of the immigrant groups who “adapted and they have made their lives and they have helped to make our national culture.”
“That’s what I want for our country, I want everybody who comes here and makes their lives here to be and to feel British,” he said.
Johnson — a former London mayor and foreign secretary — is battling current Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt to succeed Prime Minister Theresa May, who announced her resignation in May over her failure to handle the Brexit issue. The winner will be declared later this month.
