An excellent book about the Prime Minister has just been published. Unfortunately it is in German.
Interview. Johnson: This election is “going down to the wire. It is absolutely vital that every Conservative gets out and votes.”
He names his favourite carol, pledges an independent inquiry into anti-Muslim hatred within the Tory Party, and says his record explains why he can be trusted.

There is a sense with all Johnson speeches that he is somehow parodying a politician making one – that the whole thing is done tongue-in-cheek.
