It has come to our attention today that Mrs May has been told to sack either Boris Johnson or Phillip Hammond to bring this Brexit infighting to an end. This will be the true test for Theresa as to whether she really is for Brexit or is she just a dirty Remoaner like we all suspect.
Calls for Boris to go have been mounting since, well, since he was first appointed. But any attempt from May to demote Boris would apparently be met by a refusal and the threat of a leadership challenge. One Tory leaker said: “We would love to see her sack Hammond. The point is Boris is the one constantly being accused of being disloyal – but actually the one being disloyal is Philip Hammond.”
Hopefully this time Hammond will be the one given the P45.
