Boris Johnson Wins High Court Challenge Against Prosecution Over £350m Brexit Claim

Boris Johnson Wins High Court Challenge Against Prosecution Over £350m Brexit Claim Boris Johnson has succeeding in blocking a private prosecution against him over allegations of misconduct in public office.

When Boris Johnson gave his friend David Cameron just ten minutes’ notice that he was backing Leave in the EU Referendum — a devastating blow to the then Prime Minister and the Remain campaign — a serious rift opened up.

They’d long been school, university and political rivals, but enjoyed a good relationship.

For Cameron, it was a bitter betrayal. However, he said later: ‘We are still friends — just not such good friends.’

In a twist, I now hear that Cameron is quietly advising Boris on his Tory leadership campaign.

What the papers say – June 14

What the papers say – June 14 Boris Johnson’s ballot bonanza features on the front pages.

David Cameron gives a Commons statement after every EU summit and normally they follow a predictable pattern; he Boris Johnson speaking in the House of Commons on Monday. I have no other agenda than what is best for our country. This was an obvious reference to Johnson ’s naked

Eton, Oxford, the race for the premiership, the EU referendum – but what next for these two men whose lives have been intertwined for 40 years?

After he romped home first in last week’s ballot, Boris headed to the Carlton Club in St James, the spiritual home of the Conservative Party, where was spotted locked in conversation with the former PM.

I hear that Cameron had initially privately supported Health Secretary Matt Hancock who, at just 40, had positioned himself as the next-generation candidate. He withdrew from the contest on Friday after securing just 20 votes.

But it seems Cameron has always assumed that Boris would win — gaffes or revelations permitting — and clearly wants to give his two cents.

One Cameron confidant told me: ‘David is delighted to be asked to give advice and he buried the hatchet with Boris long ago.’

Is Tory leadership hopeful Rory Stewart at risk of sabotaging himself with mixed messages?

He told Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage on LBC yesterday that ‘we need to find a way, as a party, of reaching out to you and bring you in to try to work out how we get this [Brexit] through Parliament’.

Yet earlier, on the Andrew Marr Show, Stewart — a Remainer who says the Tories must deliver Brexit — said he’d flatly refuse to serve in a Boris Johnson Cabinet.

Or would he? On Friday he told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme that he would be ‘honoured to serve’ the former Mayor of London. Within minutes, he was on Good Morning Britain saying he wouldn’t...

Lord Sugar backs Boris Johnson as PM despite Brexit jail demand

Lord Sugar backs Boris Johnson as PM despite Brexit jail demand Lord Sugar has backed Boris Johnson as the next prime minister - despite having previously suggested he should be jailed for misleading the public over Brexit. He voiced his opinions on the leading Tory candidate on Sky's Ian King Live on Friday, saying he was "delighted" that Mr Johnson looks like he will be the next Prime Minister. Lord Sugar said: "And the reason for that is because in a bizarre way, when the next general election comes up, I think the voting public will far prefer him than Jeremy Corbyn. "So anybody who will stop Corbyn getting into power is going to be backed by me.

Speaking on Nick Ferrari’s LBC radio show this week, Lord Young, who was Margaret Thatcher’s Trade Secretary, said: ‘I think Margaret Thatcher would probably opt for Dominic Raab. He has the sort of policies and the look that would appeal to her.’

The Iron Lady certainly wasn’t immune to a clean cut, manly visage!

Tipped by some as a future Labour leader, Shadow Education Secretary Angela Rayner has attempted to exploit the ‘collapse’ of Change UK.

She posted a photo of an empty telephone box with the caption: ‘Change UK new HQ.’

To which the former Labour MP and now Independent for Dudley North Ian Austin replied: ‘Tragically, Angela, you could get the number of members of the Shadow Cabinet with the decency and guts to speak out about racism in the Labour Party in that phone box, too.’ Quite right, Ian.

'Cabinet plot to ensure Johnson wins Conservative leadership' - report

'Cabinet plot to ensure Johnson wins Conservative leadership' - report Some members of the cabinet have reportedly hatched a plan in an effort to ensure that Boris Johnson is the only candidate on the ballot paper when party members vote for their new leader. According to the Daily Telegraph, some senior members of the cabinet want to avoid a "blue on blue" battle for the next party leader, which could leave the candidates open to attacks from each other, as well as from Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.

Jezza’s very short-term memory

Jeremy Corbyn posted a tweet at the weekend saying: ‘We should strive to create a society that allows every LGBT+ person the right to be open about who they are without fear.’

Well said, Jeremy. Unfortunately, this is the same Labour leader who took £20,000 for appearances on Press TV, the mouthpiece of the Iranian government — an abhorrent regime which publicly executes gay men.

Yet another example of ‘do as I say, not as I do’ from this hypocrite.

Johnson: 'Simply unfair' to 'drag' my loved ones into politics.
Boris Johnson has again declined to talk about a late-night row involving his partner, saying it is "simply unfair" to "drag" his loved ones into politics.
