I am a Conservative, of course I am … But this leader, I don’t recognise this. It’s the Brexit party, rebadged ….
[The party has] been taken over by rather a knockabout sort of character [Dominic Cummings, Boris Johnson’s de facto chief of staff] who’s got this bizarre crash-it-through philosophy … [And a] cabinet which is the most right-wing cabinet any Conservative party has ever produced. They’re not in control of events. The prime minister comes and talks total rubbish to us, and is planning to hold a quick election and get out, blaming parliament and Europe for the shambles.
