Boris and Dave

You say that we claim in our biography of the Tory leader that David Cameron and Boris Johnson "share a mutual loathing" ( Boris's verdict on himself: six and a half out of ten, 30 April ). This is not quite right. To our understanding, they get on reasonably enough on the surface, but do not admire one another as they might. As we wrote: "Although Cameron is not consciously hostile to Johnson (nor vice versa - both are comparatively free of personal malice), he perplexedly - and without much expectation - seeks evidence that his old associate is not going to embarrass him." The relationship stops well short of loathing. Francis Elliott and James Hanning London
