IF THERESA MAY wants to pun­ish rebel For­eign Sec­re­tary Boris John­son, she could do worse than sack his deputy Sir Alan Duncan for say­ing a work­ing-class ‘tantrum’ caused Brexit and re­place him with ex-Army of­fi­cer and brain­box Tom Tu­gend­hat, left, seen as a fu­ture PM. ‘He is clev­erer than Boris and de­spises him even more than Duncan – and Boris knows it,’ said Dog’s mole.
