Theresa May hints she is prepared to demote Boris Johnson in a reshuffle

8 Oct

Asked what she might do with the Foreign Secretary in a reshuffle, she told The Sunday Times: “It has never been my style to hide from a challenge and I’m not going to start now.

“I’m the PM, and part of my job is to make sure I always have the best people in my cabinet, to make the most of the wealth of talent available to me in the party.”

Her comments will be viewed as a slapdown to Mr Johnson, whose activities overshadowed much of the Tory conference until Mrs May’s ill-fated speech. Although to muddy the waters further, the Foreign Secretary issued a plea for warring party members to unite behind the Prime Minister in this morning’s Sunday Telegraph.
