Rory Stewart’s assessment of Boris Johnson was as brutal as it was honest
While various unfortunate holders of the short straw have been rolled out to defend Boris Johnson to the media, former Tory MP Rory Stewart’s interview with Sky News took a very different and rather more honest position.
Rory Stewart – #PartyGate should be the last nail in Boris Johnson's coffin… Johnson was manifestly unsuited to be Prime Minister from the beginning, & it's very, very disturbing that a great country, like Britain, should have chosen somebody so unsuitable for the role. pic.twitter.com/sZK1PDoyJD

He lies, he’s disorganised, he betrays almost every personal commitment that he has.
The unbridled condemnation from the former contender for the Tory leadership post made a refreshing change, prompting this praise.

Rory Stewart has the skill of making devastating take-downs in a totally nonchalant way. https://t.co/EnDDWX6ur8

I may not agree with Rory Stewart's politics, but he has been consistent in calling out Boris Johnson, unlike many tories, who now suddenly express shock at this sudden realisation that he can't be trusted. As if there were no red flags! https://t.co/LCXwl3oIKn

Hal Cruttenden summed up why the clip got such a positive response.
In case you’ve not seen such a thing for a while, this is a Tory with a brain… and a moral compass. Good morning. https://t.co/PCmKZzsZuy
