Alan Duncan, the Foreign Office Minister, has said that his colleague Boris Johnson never wanted Brexit to happen.
Duncan’s comments are being broadcast this week on a BBC documentary on Brexit, but were recorded just before the Brexit vote. Duncan said:
“By championing leave, Boris can be the great heir apparent of the future, darling of the activists, but actually it would be quite good if he didn’t actually win the referendum because there would be total chaos”.
Johnson, the current Foreign Secretary, has yet to respond to Duncan’s comments.
