Boris Johnson is on the centre of recent hypothesis over a sensational political comeback.

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak this week left the door open to a return by his former boss.

Asked by ITV if he would have Mr Johnson again in his Cabinet, Mr Sunak replied: “I’m proud of the work that we did together. And we worked well together for a long time.

“In the tip there are, you already know, well-documented variations…”

Pressed again, he added: “Well, I by no means discuss these personnel issues, however look, I, you already know, I converse to him on an event.”

Mr Sunak’s feedback led to science minister Andrew Griffith additionally backing Mr Johnson for a return.

He advised LBC yesterday: “The Conservative government needs strong Conservative voices.

“We’ve got a brilliant one in the Prime Minister but politics is a team game.

“My background was in business and you only get results by working together as a team.

“We have got some real jeopardy at the moment. There is a party, you have seen their U-turns in the last 24 hours, that builds on many other U-turns.

“The simple truth is they don’t have a plan, that could cost the economy dear.

“Boris is a great voice. I hope we’ve got many great voices.

“And we desperately need to get the message out that it is not a good time to go back to square one.

“We have taken a lot of tough decisions over the last 18 months. I know that has been very hard for people. It comes on the back of Covid and the war in Ukraine.

“So come back anybody who’s got a strong voice who can call out the danger of Keir Starmer.”

Mr Johnson was forced out of No 10 in 2022, with Mr Sunak’s resignation as Chancellor triggering a wave of departures.

He stepped down as the MP for Uxbridge and South Ruislip in June last year after a “witch hunt” parliamentary investigation into his dealing with of the Partygate row.
