LONDON - British Prime Minister David Cameron is considering the current mayor of London, Boris Johnson, to within a few months to appoint Foreign Minister. The flamboyant politician would therefore not only play a leading role in the campaign to keep Britain in the EU, but can also position itself to take over the lead Cameron at one point.
Johnson has until May still mayor of the British capital. Then he would leave the current Foreign Minister, Philip Hammond, to replace, reports The Telegraph. Hammond is a declared eurosceptic.
Cameron wants next year a referendum on whether the country should remain in the EU.
Cameron said Friday that he sincerely believe the British future lies within the EU, to the fury of Eurosceptic party members who first want to wait for the negotiation of the terms thereof.
The change of government, Johnson would get the opportunity to present itself as a new party leader, in a fight that probably will be between him and the Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne. He can also be formed so diplomatic.
The prime minister is pro-Boris , said an unnamed source told the newspaper. He is a celebrity. What other party has a favorite as he? Quot;
