Heseltine 'disturbed' at Johnson Hitler jibe.
TORY grandee Lord Heseltine has described Boris Johnson's remarks comparing the EU to Hitler as "disturbing".
The former Deputy Prime Minister said: "The idea that a serious British politician can in any way invoke that memory, I don't really understand what Boris is up to frankly.
"I like him, he makes me laugh. And yet about Hitler, I find that deeply disturbing. I know what happened, I was there. " Lord Heseltine, 83, told the BBC he would be "very surprised" if the ex-London Mayor became Tory leader.
The peer warned: "He's behaving irresponsibly, recklessly and I fear that his judgment is going."
Following a claim by Mr Johnson that the EU prevents bananas being sold in more than bunches of three, Lord Heseltine added: "The strain of the campaign is beginning to tell on him."
Out campaigner Mr Johnson had said: "It is absurd that we are told you cannot sell bananas in bunches of more than two or three bananas."
But he was left red-faced when it emerged EU rules state the fruit should be sold either singly or in bunches of four or more.
