Here’s a fascinating article from the Independent. It reports that an accident-strewn speech on the last day of the Conservative Party conference took the spotlight off the Foreign Secretary and back on to the Prime Minister, although probably not in the way she had hoped. But the “Boris” problem persists, and it will persist, until Theresa May becomes brave enough or desperate enough to do something about it. The article speculates on Johnson and Davis changing roles.
At first this seems a bit wacky. But if we assume that Britain’s heading for a very hard, disaster Brexit, crashing out of the EU, fielding Johnson might be a high risk strategy.
