The lady interviewer of Boris Johnson was clearly biased in favour of staying in the EU. She was recounting Labour’s latest revision of its position as if it were the answer to all outstanding issues in negotiations with the EU (which it is not), without any acceptance that remaining in the Customs Union would limit our freedom to negotiate trade deals for ourselves. Mr Johnson’s attempt to point out with facts that our growth rates in trade with countries outside the EU are and have been growing faster than our trade within the EU were drowned out by her continuously speaking over him and stating what were obviously her strongly held personal views in favour of remaining in the Customs Union.
