Boris for Britain launches….but it’s not quite what you were expecting
Boris' bid to become Prime Minister has had a boost from a very unexpected corner.
A new website backing the tousle-haired Tory for leader has launched, and the manifesto promises are exactly what you’d expect: Abolish inheritance tax, introduce some “efficiency” to the NHS, and tax cuts for wealth creators.
The website comes with some real-life endorsements from some of Bojo’s biggest supporters, including Steve Bannon, who says: “I think he has potential to be a great prime minister, not a good one.”
Boris is said to have told the site: “I never wanted to be Prime Minister. Indeed, if there was anything I could do to stop myself from running for leader, I would.”
It turns out the website is a satirical piece by Remain-backing group Our Future Our Choice. It all looks very believable until you get to their disclaimer at the bottom.
