Big Tory donor will back Boris Johnson to beat George Osborne in Conservative leadership race
In an interview with The Times, he said: “We need to make sure we win the next election,” he said. “We can’t be thinking, ‘OK, if Corbyn is the leader, probably with George we can [win]’. We must make sure — we must secure our position.
“We need to think probably the Labour leader will be different and very strong. Then we need to think who our leader will be. With George, it will be a disaster. If it’s Boris, we have a very good chance.”
