George Bush drops out of the contest to be the Republican nominee for US President. But he had $100 million and the Bush family machine.

Boris Johnson comes out for the campaign to leave the EU. The anti-Europe Tories are split. Boris is the neoliberal, small state get out of big state side. I have no doubt that Britain will stay in the EU. Boris will have a burst and it will increase his popularity in the Tory party, but Britain has a lot to lose if they’re not in the EU.
