Boris Johnson must remain an outsider on immigration if he is committed to Britain’s prosperity and wants to cultivate his leadership credentials  

Nonconformity defines Boris Johnson’s public image and wins him much admiration. Now he risks sacrificing this valuable asset to tailor himself for the Tory top job. Fellow Conservatives are ransoming the leadership, pressurising him to adopt tougher rhetoric on immigration. Such a move would surely dismay voters who value his tenacity, an attribute so vital for defending our open economy.
