Boris Johnson will hit the marketing campaign path to guard the “hard-won” Brexit freedoms he secured after his stonking election victory. The former prime minister is a Tory “through and through” and is pleased to place his expertise to “good use”, in response to allies.

Rishi Sunak desires to “pull together” with Mr Johnson to combat off the election menace from Labour. The ex-PM is able to marketing campaign in key Red Wall seats for the nice of the celebration after persistently disappointing polls for the Tories.

A supply near Mr Johnson stated: “Boris is a Tory through and through and would campaign for the Conservative Party whoever is leader.

“He will set out the case against Starmer and spell out how the election victory was won with the agenda of 2019 and then delivering the hard-won Brexit freedoms,” the source added.

“If the Tory party do want to make use of Boris’s skills, he will, of course, put them to good use.”

Downing Street insiders said there has been a thaw in relations between the two men and they would “welcome” him on the marketing campaign path.

“We want the whole Conservative family to come together and get out to campaign,” a supply stated.

“If you are the manager of a team and former players say they want to come back, we would welcome that.

“We need to pull together to stop Keir Starmer. If Boris is up for doing that, that’s great.

“Let’s see if he turns up.”

Mr Johnson is known to wish to combat to guard the purple wall agenda he secured a landslide election victory on 5 years in the past.

Allies level out he’s a lifelong Conservative and whereas he doesn’t have a spreadsheet prepared with the place he would marketing campaign, he’s eager to assist particular person MPs.

Conservative MP Paul Bristow stated Mr Johnson has “rock star appeal” and is a confirmed election winner.

He stated: “Labour is led by someone who tried to make Corbyn PM.

“Hiding behind a boring exterior is a man who has changed his mind and flip-flopped on every major issue facing our country.

“Labour is hiding from the electorate their ideological commitment to open borders, tax and spend, and ever closer alignment with the EU.

“Starmer is so beatable. But to do this we need our best eleven on the field.

“This includes Boris. So come on No 10, pick up the phone.

“Let’s put the band back together. Boris and Rishi were a winning combination. They can be again.”

Mr Johnson’s involvement within the conventional Labour heartlands he received for the celebration in 2019 can be a serious increase after the Conservative celebration misplaced excessive profile purple waller Lee Anderson to Reform.

The Ashfield MP left the Tories after being suspended after being accused of Islamophobia for feedback he made about London mayor Sadiq Khan.

Mr Anderson crossed the ground for the primary time on Tuesday to sit down on the Opposition benches, taking a spot subsequent to George Galloway, who received Rochdale within the current by-election for the Workers Party of Britain.

Mr Johnson is broadly considered as a formidable campaigner, with even his critics admitting that he has a capability to succeed in voters the celebration has struggled to win over.

Former MP Nadine Dorries stated she speaks to Mr Johnson “all the time” and he has “no intention” of coming again.

She stated he’s incomes a “shed load” of cash and questioned why he would wish to return to “rescue the backsides” of the MPs who ousted him.

But Tory sources stated the feedback must be taken with a “pinch of salt” and Ms Dorries is unaware of the state of affairs.

Relations between Mr Johnson and his then chancellor broke down within the remaining days of his authorities after Mr Sunak publicly referred to as for him to give up.

Mr Sunak later accused his predecessor of desirous to bend the foundations on handing out peerages following a row over his resignation honours record along with his former bosses hitting again at him for “talking rubbish”.

But the pair talked on Remembrance Sunday after they gathered with different former premiers on the Cenotaph.

Then in February, they issued a uncommon joint submit on social media to mark the second anniversary of the invasion of Ukraine.

The pair expressed solidarity with Volodymyr Zelensky, saying: “Britain was with you then and we’re with you now – for as long as it takes. Slava Ukraini.”

But whereas Mr Johnson is predicted to hit the marketing campaign path, it’s unlikely he’ll make any joint appearances with Mr Sunak.

Last month, the Prime Minister stated there have been “well documented” variations between the 2 however that they had “worked well together for a long time”.

He added:”I’m proud of the work that we did together.”

Energy minister Graham Stuart said the development shows “everyone is coming behind” the Prime Minister.

“Boris is a large character and character,” he advised Times Radio. “He’s always been dedicated to the interests of this country and he, like me, recognises the need to stop Keir Starmer becoming Prime Minister.

“It’s about the Conservative family coming together and working flat out together to close that opinion poll lead that Labour currently enjoy because every day we look at what a Labour government would consist of, we can see how weak and damaging it would be.”

Lord Hague, who had publicly referred to as for Mr Johnson to give up as PM, stated he “disapproved” of the best way he had performed his premiership.

“But of course he should be campaigning for the party,” he added. “He’s a unique and recognisable figure.”

He stated Mr Johnson is “probably still popular” in some elements of the nation.

“Are there people who still like Boris? Of course there are,” the peer added.
