The idea of a cabinet minister refusing to be moved isn’t as far removed from reality as some might believe.

Iain Duncan Smith allegedly refused to allow David Cameron to move him from the Department for Work and Pensions in – I believe – September 2012. He insisted on continuing his work to deprive the most vulnerable people in the UK of the benefits for which they had paid throughout their working lives and that they needed in order to survive.

So Mr Johnson could argue that he must continue his own work, bringing the UK into disrepute internationally and lowering the Conservative government in the minds of right-thinking people generally.

But Theresa May is not David Cameron. Many – including This Writer – see her as weak, but that doesn’t mean she can’t be levered into doing the right thing.

If she thinks she’s between the proverbial ‘rock and hard place’, who knows what could happen?

Boris Johnson will “just say no” if Theresa May tries to sack him, it has been reported.

The Foreign Secretary will apparently just refuse any attempts by the Prime Minister to demote him, who indicated that he could be moved into another Cabinet role in a reshuffle.

Allies of Mr Johnson have warned that doing so would undermine Brexit and destabilise the Government.
