Tory Grassroots Campaign to Draft Boris to Lead Leave

 

Inevitably many Tory Brexiteers are calling for Boris to lead Britain out of the EU. There is no doubt that if he were so to do the referendum would be a fascinating proxy for a Tory leadership campaign. Whatever the outcome he would probably as a result stitch up the Tory leadership in a head-to-head with Osborne. The prospect of “Borxit” happening is not that high, many suspect that his reluctant blessing of a deal is part of a pre-agreed charade with Cameron…

GRASSROOTS CALL ON BORIS TO BE BRAVE AND BACK BREXIT

SOCIAL MEDIA CAMPAIGN TO DRAFT BORIS TO LEAD LEAVE

Alex Deane, former chief of staff to David Cameron MP, said: the Conservative Party’s membership needs a champion with significant, mass appeal, political and cultural clout, to represent our dissatisfaction with the failure of the government to meaningfully deliver on its manifesto pledge of reform in our relationship with the EU.

“It is with this in mind that I urge the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, to throw his weight behind the Brexit campaign, and help lead Britain out of a tired, fundamentally flawed, failing political union.

“Boris must surely feel the hand of history on his shoulder at this pivotal moment. His involvement in the campaign to lead Britain out of the European Union could tip the scales. Come on, Boris. Be brave. Back Brexit!”

An Ipsos MORI poll from February 2016 revealed that Mr. Johnson’s opinions on the referendum campaign are valued by 32 per cent of those polled. This is in comparison to Mr. Cameron’s opinions (44 per cent), Theresa May’s opinions (28 per cent) and George Osborne’s opinions (28 per cent) – meaning Boris’s voice is the second most important behind that of the Prime Minister.

There is a campaign site and they are running online adverts here, on Facebook and ConservativeHome. The twitter hashtag is #BeBraveBoris. Full press release here.

Vote Leave’s Dom Cummings on David Davis:

“DD is manufactured exactly to specification as the perfect stooge for Heywood: thick as mince, lazy as a toad, and vain as Narcissus.”
