Stratford MP now supporting Boris Johnson for PM

Stratford-on-Avon MP Nadhim Zahawi.

Stratford MP Nadhim Zahawi has switched his support to Boris Johnson in the conservative leadership contest after his preferred candidate Dominic Raab was eliminated from the race yesterday.

Mr Johnson is the clear front runner so far, 80 votes ahead of his nearest rival Jeremy Hunt.

After failing to gain the required 33 votes to stay in the contest yesterday, Dominic Raab today said he would now be supporting Boris Johnson.

Kenilworth and Southam MP Jeremy Wright continues to give his backing to Sajid Javid in the leadership race.

    So our “honourable member” supports a proven liar, a grown man unable to dress himself and serial philanderer? But then, some people will say and do anything to get a cabinet post……just saying!

      What a shower they are. Mind you he may be supporting Boris in order to enjoy the tax cut for higher earners
