Gb, “Johnson hopes for a return to Berlusconi”

According to the former Minister of Cooperation in the government of Theresa May, Rory Stewart, the former prime minister is hoping for a “populist return” after being forced by his own parliamentarians to leave the leadership of the country

Boris Johnson as Silvio Berlusconi. It is to him that the outgoing British Prime Minister would look, according to the former Minister of Cooperation of the government of Theresa May, Rory Stewart. Interviewed by the ‘Guardian’, Stewart argues that Johnson ” hopes to do as Berlusconi ”, that is, he is confident in a ” populist return ” after being forced by his own parliamentarians to leave the leadership of the country after a series of scandals . But “there are people who want him to come back,” said Stewart, who called Johnson “dangerous.” Running against him for Tory leadership in 2019, the former minister said that “ we have to remind people why he left. He should have left long, long ago. What he did was downright shameful and dangerous. ”



However, Stewart believes Johnson wants to try to return to the political front, “hoping for a populist return”, and compared him to both Berlusconi and former Pakistani prime minister Imran Khan.

The Guardian then cites a former Johnson adviser, according to whom the former prime minister may try to emulate Churchill. “He shares with most conservatives that Liz will most likely be a disaster,” the former adviser said of a possible premiership for Foreign Minister Truss. “A refreshed and perhaps remorseful Boris who dispenses optimism. after so much darkness it could attract MPs, “the source said. Conservative MP Michael Fabricant then cited the” remorse of ministers who shared that Boris should leave “and that” it could increase in the months to come. ” Johnson’s next steps, according to a government source cited by the Guardian, “he will focus on his international image rather than the Westminster games,” but he will not completely disappear from the domestic political scene. “Although he will be happier that Premier Liz is rather than Rishi, he will desperately want to go back to being prime minister. And I bet that as long as there is even the slightest chance of it happening, he will do everything he can, ” he said.
