Banks: Boris as Leader to unite the right and win big

Leave.EU and Westmonster’s Arron Banks has pointed out that a Boris Johnson leadership that united Brexiteers could see the Conservatives “win big”.

Responding to a tweet from Alastair Campbell, Banks wrote: “It’s a weird world where the Tory leadership are doing the opposite of what a majority of their voters want and Labour the same.

“If the Tories embrace Brexit with Johnson as Leader, they unite the right and let Lib Dems & Labour split the left. Win big…”

The Tories are 4 points ahead of Labour – and that’s with UKIP on 7% and a hugely unpopular Leader and plan in May and Chequers. They could be miles ahead if Boris got the top job.
