Boris Johnson launched a scathing attack on Theresa May’s Brexit strategy in his resignation letter, saying that he had a dream and she was suffocating it.
The former Foreign Secretary began his letter with these words:
“I say to you today that in spite of the difficulties and frustrations of the moment, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the British dream,” explained Johnson.
“I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal but some are more equal than others’.
“I have a dream that one day in the Bullingdon Club the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slaveowners will be able to sit down together at a table of brotherhood.
“I have a dream that one day even the city of Liverpool, a desert state, sweltering with the heat of scroungers and sentimentality, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and progress.
“I have a dream that my four children (five if you include the one that my mistress had) will one day live in a nation in which they will not be judged by their character but by which school they went to.
“I have a dream that I, Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson, will be Prime Minister and will make Britain great again.”
