Has Nadhim Zahawi turned on Boris Johnson, just 24 hours after he was promoted to Chancellor? That’s the question all of Westminster is asking tonight amid reports for lobby journalists that Johnson will shortly meet with a delegation of senior cabinet ministers. It’s said to involve the Chancellor and Transport Secretary Grant Shapps, following a raft of resignations during Johnson’s two hour grilling at the Liaison Committee.
Unfortunately for Johnson, rather than plotting a response to all of this, he has been forced to spend his afternoon facing a range of issues from the national to the extremely local. It was left to Darren Jones, the Business Select Committee chairman to break the news to Boris. Jones asked if he was aware about the imminent cabal, claims to which Johnson reacted with indifference.
Out of the frying pan and into the fire, eh Boris?
