Boris Johnson’s fall from power opened the door of Number 10 for Liz Truss and the former Foreign Secretary’s resignation as Prime Minister has now set the stage for a dramatic political comeback. Mr Bristow has reported receiving messages from constituents that they would like the former prime minister to return to the top job. 

Mr Bristow told Sky News: “The strong message I got was bring back Boris Johnson.”

“I don’t know what the situation is going to be, I don’t know the rules,” he added.

“I don’t even know if Boris Johnson wants to stand but we need an election winner and we had an election winner.

“As far as I’m concerned I will listen to my constituents.”

 

Mr Johnson is expected to stand in the Conservative Party leadership contest to replace Ms Truss the Times has reported.

“He’s taking soundings but is said to believe it is a matter of national interest,” Times Political Editor Steven Swinford said on Twitter.

While Government minister Sir James Duddridge gas tweeted with the hashtag #bringbackboris, he said: “I hope you enjoyed your holiday boss. Time to come back. Few issues at the office that need addressing.”

Sir James had served as a parliamentary private secretary to Mr Johnson when he was in No 10.
