Unfortunately the Labour Party, the Liberal Democrats and the SNP got together to pass a law that effectively forced me to break that promise. They gave Brussels the power to decide how long we should remain in the EU.

Truthfullness 3 / 5

Fact checked by: fullfact


This first part of this claim is correct, Johnson is referring to the Benn Act.

The second part, about Brussels dictating how long the UK stays in the EU is incorrect.

Do you agree this deserves 3 / 5 for truthfullness?
