David Cameron has branded Boris Johnson a 'greased piglet' and said he would back his deal to get Britain out of the EU.
The ex-prime minister made the remarks during a talk which was repeatedly interrupted by protesters criticising his decision to call the 2016 referendum.
Audience - Yorkshire - Number - Deal - Closer
He told an audience in Yorkshire that if he were still in Number 10, he would have opted for a deal that guaranteed a closer relationship with the EU, and which would keep the UK within the customs union.
But he added that Mr Johnson's deal represents a better choice than no-deal and comes close to what was promised in the 2017 election manifesto.
MPs - Thing - Piglet - People - Hands
And he said he thought MPs would back it, saying: 'The thing about the greased piglet is that he manages to slip through other people's hands where mere mortals fail.'
After saying that he would vote for the deal, the ex-MP said: 'The country voted to leave the European Union, the best way to leave is with a deal, I think a no-deal Brexit would be bad for the economy and bad for the union.
Deal - Boris - Deal
'I think it's much better to leave with a deal, and I think Boris has done well to achieve that deal.
'I hope he'll get it through Parliament, I suspect he will but it will be tight.'
