Far-right US political strategist Steve Bannon advised Boris Johnson—leading candidate for Britain’s premiership—on a key Leave campaign speech Johnson delivered before 2016’s Brexit referendum, a new video shows.
Speaking in July 2018 Bannon explains: “I’d been talking to him all weekend over this speech,” recommending “[Johnson] incorporate the idea of June 23rd as Britain’s independence day—like our July 4th.”
Meanwhile, the media remain focused on a domestic row which occurred last Friday between Johnson and partner Carrie Symonds, and lead to a police call-out.
Incoming victims’ commissioner Dame Vera Baird concurs it is “absolutely in the public interest that people do” report such conflicts.
How should we define public interest?
