Boris Johnson has been accused of bad judgment after he wrote about claims that Barack Obama’s Kenyan heritage had driven the president towards anti-British sentiment.


The Labour MPs Yvette Cooper and Chuka Umunna have both raised questions about the suggestion by the London mayor, who is a high-profile campaigner for Britain to leave the EU, in the Sun newspaper.


Johnson wrote about the decision of the Obama administration to remove a bust of Britain’s wartime leader Winston Churchill from the Oval Office.


“Some said it was a snub to Britain. Some said it was a symbol of the part-Kenyan president’s ancestral dislike of the British empire – of which Churchill had been such a fervent defender,” said Johnson, in an article designed to hit back at the president, who waded into the EU referendum debate on Friday.
