Boris knows all about keeping things fresh.
Boris Johnson’s claim that British*kipper*producers are being hit by*EUfood safety rules was branded "fake news" by Brussels, after it emerged the regulations had been imposed by the UK government.He claimed Brussels was demanding that each vacuum-packed kipper sent through the post had to be accompanied by a plastic ice pillow. And he said that leaving the EU would allow the UK to end this “damaging regulatory overkill”.
But the European Commission food safety spokeswoman Anca Paduraru told a Brussels press conference: “The case described by Mr Johnson falls outside the scope of EU legislation and is purely a UK national competence.”
And a European Commissioner told Mr Johnson that as a potential future prime minister he should "keep a cool head", warning him: "A fish rots from the head down."
