THE people who admire Boris Johnson for his ability to “say it as it is” should think a little carefully at that expression. It merely means he says it as he sees it.

That doesn’t make it the gospel according to John, it merely means he is making a statement.

Also, to me, an intelligent, highly educated man who acts like a buffoon is treating the voter as a fool, which makes me think he is dishonest.

A Conservative all my long life, if Boris wins, I will never vote Conservative again and God help the country.
