The Blond Bombsite
I am thoroughly enjoying the derision with which Boris Johnson's sudden conversion to the anti-EU cause is being greeted by all sides tonight.
The many sides of the Leave campaign are making no bones about not wanting him, and about not trusting him as far as they can spit in his opportunistic, buffoonish face.
His allies and associates are briefing openly that he is as pro-EU as he has always been, but that, as we all knew, he fancies becoming Conservative Leader, and thus Prime Minister, in this Parliament.
Don't waste your time on his Telegraph article. It is quite sad that he has been reduced to that. Not that he was ever very good. But he did at least used to be better than that.
A politician for many years, and a political journalist for decades, he has allegedly only just made up his mind about the EU.
As ever, therefore, he deserves to be treated with absolutely no seriousness at all.
This time, it seems that he is finally getting what he deserves.
