Nicholas Soames, who has been deported by the British Prime Minister Boris Johnson from the Conservative Party group, fought hard for Johnson on Friday in The Times. 71-year-old Soames, grandson of Winston Churchill, says in the newspaper that the current prime minister has nothing to do with his grandfather. Johnson likes to identify himself with the former war premier.

“Boris Johnson is in nothing like Winston Churchill. I don’t think anyone ever called Boris a diplomat or statesman, “said Soames. “Winston Churchill was Winston Churchill because of his experiences in life. Johnson only tells a lot of lies about the European Union and even becomes prime minister. ”

Johnson expelled Soames and twenty other Tories from the group because they voted against their own party’s line in an important Brexit vote in the Lower House.

Soames said after his resignation that he has always believed that the result of the June 2016 referendum, in which a majority of Britons voted for the Brexit, should be respected. He added that that step cannot be taken without an agreement with the European Union. The British parliament has now approved a bill that will prevent a no-deal brexit. Johnson himself wants to get out of the EU as quickly as possible, with or without a deal.

Soames was in the British parliament for 37 years. He announced that he would no longer stand for election.
