In fact, both camps are keen to elist Boris — because nobody actually knows which side of the fence he’ll jump. He’s flip-flopped so much he probably doesn’t know what he thinks:
- Back in June he called for a ‘no’ vote ahead of the EU referendum.
- Two months later he appeared to soften his position, telling Der Spiegel “we can’t leave Europe”.
- By September, he’d gone back to thinking he’d consider voting for Britain to leave the EU again.
And this month — in a notable omission during his speech at the Tory Party conference — Johnson refused to commit himself at all to whether he’d vote for Britain to stay or leave.
Bozza once called arch Europhile Nick Clegg a “wobbling jelly of indecision and vacillation”.
Pot and kettle?
