Hope some mem­bers will avoid John­son

Gloucestershire Echo - - LETTERS & OPINION - John Rick­etts Lyn­worth

✒ SOME time ago, a well-in­formed right wing writer said of Boris John­son: “There’s a pat­tern to Boris’s life, and it isn’t the lust for of­fice, or for ap­plause, or for sus­cep­ti­ble women ... It’s the ca­sual dis­hon­esty, the cru­elty, the be­trayal; and, beneath the be­trayal, the empti­ness of real am­bi­tion; the am­bi­tion to do any­thing use­ful with of­fice once it is at­tained.”

Reading Matthew Paris’s col­umn in The Times now and then I don’t think he has changed his opin­ion on the man who re­mains the Tory front-runner.

I send this in the hope that some of your read­ers are paid-up mem­bers of the party who haven’t yet to vote.
