Can People Power Derail Boris’s Rise To Power?

Boris Johnson has been ordered to appear in court over claims he lied by saying the UK gave the EU £350m a week.

The Tory leadership candidate has been accused of misconduct in public office after making the claim during the 2016 EU referendum campaign.

It is a private prosecution launched by campaigner Marcus Ball, who crowdfunded £200,000 for the case.

Mr Johnson’s representatives have called the case a “stunt” that is being “brought for political purposes”.

The preliminary hearing will take place at Westminster Magistrates’ Court and the case will then be sent to the Crown Court for trial.

[Editor’s note: This crowdfunded campaign to bring Boris to justice for his scurrilous lies during the BREXIT campaign is a glimmer of hope that the plan to insert his rotund form into 10 Downing Street can be derailed and perhaps permanently destroyed. One can but hope. Ian]
