British Foreign Minister and former London mayor Boris Johnson arrived in the northern Greek city of Thessaloniki on Friday afternoon, along with his family. Johnson chose to spend his summer vacation in a European city, despite being a strong advocate of the “Leave” campaign, during the British referendum.
The British politician arrived in Thessaloniki’s airport around 1:30 pm in order to reach Halkidiki where he will be spending his vacation.
Over the years, Boris Johnson has not been a great supporter of Greece. In fact, when asked about a debt haircut he had responded that “The Greeks should leave the euro, no question. Poor things. And they will leave eventually. If you write off the debt, what do you say to all the other countries that went through the misery? This is one of those problems with no real solution. It’s sad.”
Furthermore, Boris Johnson has also expressed strong feelings against the campaign for the return of the Parthenon Marbles from the British Museum. When George Clooney called for the return of the marbles to Greece, the British politician compared the famous actor to Adolf Hitler.
