Boris Johnson’s recent remarks have sparked speculation about his potential return to front-line politics.

During an event at Georgetown University in Washington, the former Prime Minister indicated that he would not rule out standing as an MP again if he felt he had something to contribute.

The former PM arrived to cheers from the gathered audience at the University’s Center for European Policy Analysis and discussed international affairs, warning about the potential consequences of Vladimir Putin’s actions in Ukraine. He described Putin’s seizure of Kyiv as a “catastrophe” and urged Republicans in Congress to end the blockade of funding for Ukraine.

When asked where Boris saw the United Kingdom heading, Mr Johnson said:

“I think that the future of the UK is going to be glorious and we’re going to keep going. If you look at the GDP growth of the UK since 2010, we’re ahead of our European Partners, ahead of most of our European equivalents. I’ve also mentioned the vaccine roll out which we wouldn’t have been able to do without Brexit. I might also mention the AUKUS military pack which you certainly wouldn’t have been able to do without Brexit. The independent stance we took on Ukraine…”

The former PM continued:

“The future of the UK is going to be great. I think that we need to be more robust, more optimistic about sticking up for democracy around the world and I think things are tense at the moment. I also think that what’s happening in in the Middle East is tragic and I’ve tried to give an indication of where where I think that needs to go. I think the crucial thing is that Ukraine needs to win and Putin needs to lose and that will advance the cause of of democracy more than any other single thing.

“But don’t worry about the UK. I’m one of those rare UK politicians who will not moan about the UK I think the UK is in great shape.”

Furthermore, Johnson expressed optimism that Donald Trump would adopt a different approach to Russia’s actions in Ukraine if he were to return to the White House later this year.

Despite Trump’s previous statements regarding NATO and defence spending commitments, Mr. Johnson suggested that the substance of Trump’s foreign policy decisions might lead to a different stance on Ukraine.

Overall, Mr. Johnson’s remarks reflect ongoing concerns about international security and the potential for shifts in political dynamics both domestically and internationally.

When asked what the chances of him stand for election again in the UK, Boris said:

“I live a life of blameless blameless rustic obscurity now in Britain when I’m not going around giving speeches. I think it’s unlikely in the short term. Unlikely in the short term I would say.

” But I think the only circumstances on which anybody should stand for election is if they really think that they have something useful to contribute and if I if I did think that, then I would.”

  1. Boris Johnson is absolutely right. I still believe America will do a massive trade deal of cars, high tech and arms. Brexit will officially declared a success! Don’t let the remoaners get you down.

  2. Disappointed to find that Reform hasn’t put up a single candidate for local elections in my area. The other useless Westminster parties have 3 each.

    They didn’t even have a candidate for PCC.

    You gotta be in it to win it!

  3. Boris Johnson should of never been removed by the Conservatives for Rishi Sunak who was never Prime Minister material just like Theresa May from 2016 to 2019 before Him there is still time for the Conservatives to admit what a catastrophic mistake they made by replacing Sunak with Suella Braverman, Andrea Jenkins and tempt Boris Johnson to return to the fold, the UK will instantly regret inflicting Keir Starmer’s Labour on the Country it is foolish to punish the Conservatives by naively voting for Labour who has always been a disaster in office
