Boris Johnson

The media was full of stories yesterday trumpeting the decision by Boris Johnson to leave the “Brexit” faction on the EU referendum. This has to be a political move from Johnson, but allying himself with the leave faction doesn't make any sense unless he actually believes the referendum will go his way. I can’t shake the suspicion that he will U turn in a big hail of publicity and join Cameron perhaps in the belief that this late show of loyalty will play well the Tories as some bluff no nonsense politician who realises he is wrong. A politician manoeuvre last seen in “Flashman” novels.
