Nick Boles says he worked with Boris Johnson as his chief of staff at City Hall:

“He does not care about anything other than power and glory for himself.”

Boles was speaking at a Portcullis House meeting of cross-party MPs who want to get a deal over the line: eg @normanlamb @OnnMel @GloriaDePiero @SKinnock @RoryStewartUK @CarolineFlintMP @JeremyLefroy
