Boris Johnson: UK cannot renegotiate EU position

Hopes of renegotiation of the UK's place in the European Union is an "absolute illusion", Boris Johnson has said.

The only way for the UK to have any control over its "borders, immigration arrangements, and democracy" is for it to leave the EU, the former London mayor said.

The Vote Leave campaigner also hit out at European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker's claim that "out is out" if Britain votes for Brexit, and that the "Brussels bureaucrat" had "absolutely no intention of allowing this country [UK] to have any further change in its arrangements and obligations to the EU". This he said, left voters with no option but to "vote leave".

Mr Johnson made his comments on the final day of campaigning as he toured the country on behalf of Vote Leave.
