HEALTH Secretary Matt Hancock has backed Boris Johnson for No 10 in a huge blow for the Tory heavyweight’s rivals. Mr Hancock — booted out of the leadership race last week — said Mr Johnson was the “unity” candidate to bring Britain together. Matt Hancock has decided to back Boris Johnson after pulling out of the Tory leadership race But it comes less than three weeks after Mr Hancock launched an expletive-laced attack against him. He had accused Mr Johnson of being wrong to say “f*** business” during Brexit negotiations. An insider said Mr Hancock had come to terms with the fact that he needed to put aside his differences with the bookies’ favourite. He is now almost certain to be lined up for a plum job in Mr Johnson’s first Cabinet if he wins. But one furious Tory said last night: “Matt is throwing his morals out the window. To coin a phrase, he’s saying ‘I need a f**king job’.” Others pointed to the influence of former mentor and ex-Tory Chancellor George Osborne — who has been supportive of Mr Johnson’s campaign. The move comes despite almost all of Mr Hancock’s 19 backers among Tory MPs switching to either Rory Stewart or Michael Gove. And it comes 24 hours after arch-Brexiteer Esther McVey also backed Mr Johnson. [article-rail-section title=”most read in politics” posts_category=”318″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”popular” /] BoJo also has the backing of ex-Met Police chief Bernard Hogan-Howe, who said he found Mr Johnson to be “loyal, honourable and effective” when London Mayor. Ex-Commons Leader Andrea Leadsom — also knocked out last week — is said to be undecided. Mr Johnson is marching towards 150 votes in Tuesday’s second round of voting. But sources claim rival Sajid Javid, the Home Secretary, is worried he may struggle to get the 33 votes needed to stay in the contest. An insider said Mr Hancock had come to terms with the fact that he needed to put aside his differences with BoJo [bc_video video_id=”6048248047001″ account_id=”5067014667001″ player_id=”default” embed=”in-page” padding_top=”56%” autoplay=”” min_width=”0px” max_width=”640px” width=”100%” height=”100%” caption=”Matt Hancock says he’s withdrawing from Tory leadership race because he’s a candidate of the future but party is looking at the ‘here and now’ “] GOT a story?

Submarine Boris Johnson is finally surfacing to launch his Tory leadership campaign, and the blonde-haired Brexiteer Buffon is currently the frontrunner for 10 Downing Street. Yes, that’s the same MP who jeopardised incarcerated mum Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe in Iran, called black people “piccaninnies”, rugby tackled a 10-year-old boy on a business trip, accused the President of […]

Boris Johnson was a no-show at the first live Tory leadership debate (Picture: Channel 4/PA) An empty podium was reserved for Boris Johnson after he refused to take part in a live TV debate this evening. The frontrunner was nowhere to be seen as his five rivals Jeremy Hunt, Michael Gove, Dominic Raab, Sajid Javid and Rory Stewart took to the stage for the Channel 4 leadership debate. Host Krishnan Guru-Murthy said Johnson declined an invitation but was ‘welcome’ to join at any point. Guru-Murthy also poked fun at the former foreign secretary and said there was still time for him to ‘get a taxi from north London’. The spot was left conspicuously placed between Javid and Raab. His appearances since he entered the leadership contest have been few, with many accusing him of hiding from the public. Hunt demanded to know what his strategy was and told the debate: ‘Where is Boris? The spot was left conspicuously placed between Javid and Raab (Picture: PA) Hunt asked ‘where is Boris? (Picture: PA) Host Krishnan Guru-Murthy said Johnson was ‘welcome’ to show up at any point (Picture: Channel 4) ‘If his team won’t let him out to debate the five pretty friendly colleagues how is he going to do with 27 states?’ Asked about Johnson’s non-appearance, Stewart said ahead of the 6.30pm kick off: ‘We’re choosing a prime minister and the public has the right to hear from us and judge who had the qualities to be prime minister.’ He also said he was ‘disappointed’ and hoped Johnson would make a ‘last-minute appearance’. One source dismissed suggestions negotiations with the MP had broken down and told the Guardian: ‘It’s classic deflection; all the negotiations were very cordial. The reason he didn’t want to do it is because the format meant he would have to debate with the others.’ Stewart appeared on the Andrew Marr show this morning to say there is a ‘problem of trust’ with Johnson. [metro-fact-box title=”The candidates’ 30-second finishing pitches: ” colour=”orange” icon=”exclamation”] Gove said the next prime minister must be someone who has ‘been tested’ and drew on his roles in Government. He said he has ‘shown that I can bring people together, reform public services and make our country stronger’. Hunt said: ‘Our country and our party are in peril while we have been arguing about Brexit.’ He said he ‘can be trusted’ and would be the first prime minister who has been an entrepreneur and run the NHS. Stewart said there was ‘palpable anger’ among the public, and people felt Britain was ‘less than the sum of its parts’. ‘I’m still an outsider and I am campaigning on telling the truth as I see it and never making promises that we can’t deliver,’ he said. Javid said: ‘If we are to beat Jeremy Corbyn we need to reach out with our Conservative values, to this audience, to new audiences, we need to show that we don’t just tolerate modern Britain, we embrace it, we love it. I’m that person.’ Raab said he was the ‘only candidate committed to leaving (Europe) by the end of October, come what may’. He said the party ‘must keep our promises on Brexit’ and he would create a ‘fairer society where everyone gets their chance to shine’.[/metro-fact-box] He said: ‘Who do you trust to be your prime minister? How is Boris going to deliver Brexit? ‘He keeps saying “I am going to deliver it.” I don’t even know what he believes. ‘He won’t talk to me. He won’t talk to you. He won’t talk to the public. ‘We want to know what he believes. The real problem with politics is a problem of trust.’ Michael Gove was ridiculed for staring directly into the camera online (Picture: Channel 4) Stewart said Johnson refused to speak to him (Picture: Channel 4) Johnson has been unusually shy since he entered the leadership race (Picture: Reuters) This comes after Johnson won one third of the votes in the first ballot of the Tory leadership race last week. The former foreign secretary was backed by 114 Tory MPs. Mark Harper, Andrea Leadsom and Esther McVey all failed to get the 17 votes required and were automatically kicked out of the contest. At least one more candidate is expected to fall out of the race on Tuesday in the second round of voting. Contenders will be needing 33 votes to stay in the race, which only Johnson, Hunt and Gove managed to get last round.
