Today’s hot topic: Is Johnson the new Churchill?


YESTERDAY Telegraph columnist Tim Stanley waxed lyrical about the Prime Minister: ‘Boris Johnson was fantastic [on Saturday]. I’m not going to bother to be objective about it. No one else does, so why should I?

‘Ever since the blond magnificence threw his hat into the leadership ring, we’ve been told he’s incompetent and far-Right. Well, an idiot doesn’t do “the impossible” and renegotiate the Withdrawal Agreement, and as for far-Right, his words in the Commons were so temperate and liberal they could teach the world to sing.’

Is it time critics saw Boris as a Churchillian figure as Stanley asserts? Discuss!
