Yesterday’s FT story by Sebastian Payne was headed: “Brexit Breakdown – a week dominated by Boris Johnson“. It’s well worth reading and Team Cameron will not enjoy the observation that at times the tour has looked like an early incarnation of a “Boris for Prime Minister campaign bus“.
Boris is a charlatan but his “upper class bumbling twit” TV persona has endeared him to the great British public. Perhaps the Remain Campaign could persuade the League of Gentlemen to do a skit on Boris Johnson entering the Local Shop for Local People in Royston Vasey.
It was good to see Keith Vaz debunking Priti Patel about the Curry House issue. I hope the poor Ms Priti takes note.
The latest telephone poll puts Remain on 55% and Leave on 37% and better still it seems that the betting shops are lengthening the odds on Leave – which may be an even more accurate predictor than the polls.
