Raab Backs Boris

Dominic Raab has come out for Boris in his new absurd court case brought by a man who wants to overturn the referendum result. Speaking to ITV News he said:

“I do worry a little bit about the timing of this, as a private prosecution, and the sense that the cut and thrust democratic debate ought to b decided by your viewers rather than in court, and I think in order to preserve free speech and democratic debate, that’s something we should all look very carefully and consider.”

Where will other leadership contenders stand..?

UPDATE: Matt Hancock and Michael Gove (who’s also used the £350 million figure on a number of occasions) have both criticised the court case. No word yet from the others…
