Boris gives PM a show of support
BORIS Johnson has given a public show of support for Theresa May after the Prime Minister faced pressure to sack him for disloyalty over Brexit.
The Foreign Secretary used his keynote speech at the Tory party conference to praise Mrs May’s “steadfastness” over the process of leaving the European Union.
The Prime Minister said she is “in charge” of the Brexit process after Mr Johnson used a newspaper article to set out his personal red lines for the talks.
But in his speech, he insisted that the entire Cabinet was united behind Mrs May despite June’s election setback.
He told activists: “You won – we won. Theresa May won.
“She won more votes than any party leader and took this party to its highest share of the vote in any election in the last 25 years.
“The whole country owes her a debt for her steadfastness in taking Britain forward as she will to a great Brexit deal, based on her Florence speech on whose every syllable the Cabinet is united.”
