ALTHOUGH the result of the Tory leadership election has yet to be announced, the cover of the latest Spectator, of which Boris Johnson was once proud editor, shows him breaking through the door of Number Ten. The accompanying words read ‘Enter Boris’.

But for how long?

Yes, he will be at the prime ministerial despatch box on Wednesday, but he has a conjuring act to deliver with a hostile Parliament, a hostile Parliamentary Conservative Party and a wafer-thin majority even with the help of the DUP. 

The recent Commons vote shows just how weak a Boris Johnson government will be. He may have no intention of calling an election but it is hard to see how he will function without one if he is really committed to a No Deal Brexit. The Left-wing media are already out for him and counting the days. 

What do you think? Has he got in him to defy his naysayers?
