BRING IT ALL BACK: BoJo allies PLOT ‘safe seat comebackfor PM’ amid legal battle

BORIS Johnson allies are plotting a “safe seat” comeback for the PM so he can launch a comeback, Politicalite can reveal. 

Top Tories leading the #BorisOnTheBallot campaign told Politicalite last night that Mr Johnson was “testing the water” over moving to a constituency with a much larger Conservative majority.

Polls suggest that the majority of Tory members do not want the PM to resign – with 81% telling Politicalite that Boris should be on the final leadership ballot.

We asked “Should Boris Johnson be on the final ballot?” in a poll of 1,405 people.

81% said YES 19% said NO.

“It has been discussed. They’re testing the water with MPs with safe seats,” they said.

David C. Bannerman told Express.co.uk that the campaign to give members a vote had recruited a “top QC”.
