Leadsom Waiting For Boris to Offer Her Chancellor

Boris’ Telegraph column in which he appeared to endorse free movement has left him with work to do to convince Leave MPs he will deliver on Brexit. Today his allies are insisting he would end free movement. But some unconvinced Leave MPs are encouraging Andrea Leadsom to stand as the ‘true Brexit candidate’. As of 5pm this afternoon Leadsom hasn’t decided if she’s running – she is waiting to see whether Boris will offer her Chancellor. There are advantages to this for both sides: it would assuage concerns among Leavers about whether a Boris government would deliver on Brexit. It is also probably more realistic for Andrea than winning the leadership herself. Will an overture be made or will Andrea confirm she is standing?
