The public can see through Boris Johnson’s posturing very easily now.

The Tory backbencher, and soon-to-be ex-mayor of London, has announced that he will support Brexit.

Labour MP Debbie Abrahams summed up his reasons by tweeting: “Boris Johnson ‘to campaign for Brexit in EU referendum’. All about his bid for the Tory Party leadership. Shame on him.”

But it’s the reaction from fellow blogger Tom Pride that This Writer likes best: “OK, so after all his ins and outs over the years, we finally know what position Boris will be taking on the EU:”


Of course, Boris isn’t the only Tory to have come out against their prime minister David Cameron’s stance. High-profile cabinet members including Iain Duncan Smith and Michael Gove are in the ‘Out’ camp also, meaning the Conservative cabinet is split on this issue.

Now, how will the “lame stream” media report this?

David Schneider tweeted the answer:


“Shadow cabinet disagreement = chaos, infighting, weak leader

“Cabinet disagreement = principled stance allowed by confident leader”

It seems we can all see through the Tory press pretty easily, too!
