Boris Johnson is no outlier – he’s a mainstream Conservative | Samuel Earle
Like Margaret Thatcher and Enoch Powell before him, the Tory leader plays Little Englander and Global Briton at the same timeIn April 2013, Nigel Farage was on the rise, and Boris Johnson wanted to calm Conservative nerves. “He’s in our constituencies, wooing our audiences, nicking our votes,” he wrote in The Daily Telegraph.
