TORY WARS: BoJo Quashes Leadership Speculation
Boris Johnson has seemingly quashed any speculation that he may be about to challenge Theresa May for the leadership of the Tories and therefore the keys to Number 10 by calling on Brexiteer Tories to NOT topple the PM.
He told an audience at the American Enterprise Institute in Washington that it is about “policy” not “leadership”. He said: “Its not about the leadership. Its about the policy. Its about chucking Chequers.”
He went onto argue that the Tories should return to Thatcherite values and “helping people seize control of their own lives.” Spelling out his vision of where he thinks the Conservatives should position themselves on the political landscape he said: “If you think back to the great achievements of the Thatcher era, it was about helping people seize control of their own destiny.”
His remarks reflect the general opinion of Senior Brexiteer Tory rebels such as himself and David Davis who has also eschewed calling for the removal of Mrs May though Mr Davis and his former principal advisor, Stewart Jackson, have been scathing about her performance as Prime Minister in the context of the Brexit negotiations.
