“I didn’t actually say collaborators — go back over the quotation”

Boris Johnson, Radio 4’s Today

Claim

Boris Johnson told Nick Robinson he had not called Remainer MPs “collaborators” in a Facebook Q&A session.

Facts

In one of his “People’s PMQs” Johnson had said: “There’s a terrible kind of collaboration as it were, going on between people who think they can block Brexit in parliament and our European friends.”

Verdict

Johnson’s denial was thoroughly misleading. As Nick Robinson put it to Johnson, who is doing the collaborating if not collaborators?
