Tory leadership contest

“If there is one lesson from the referendum of 2016 it is that too many people feel left behind,” said Boris Johnson in the video he released yesterday to launch his campaign for the leadership of the Conservative Party.

Just stop and re-read that sentence: “If there is one lesson from that referendum of 2016 it is that too many people feel left behind.”

The referendum you will recall was on whether the United Kingdom should or should not remain a member of the European Union – leave or remain.

Here however, Boris, with the consummate skill of the performer that he is, has re-written the script.
