Just a little more about today's The World This Weekend...

The Boris segment, besides those overwhelmingly anti-Boris vox pops, featured interviews with four politicians (sitting and former MPs), all of whom supported Remain in the 2016 referendum.

(Ah but, as Rob Burley would say, 2016 is 2016. What are their positions now?) 

Alok Sharma, Conservative MP for Reading West, gave his reasons for backing Boris. He was the only pro-Boris one.

Matt Rodda, Labour MP for Reading West, criticised Boris - and (of course) the Tories, the Tories, the Tories.

Rob Wilson, former Conservative MP for Reading East, blamed Brexit.

And health minister Stephen Hammond talked of the need to appeal to the 48% and those who'd voted Lib Dems in the recent EU elections. 

Fair? Unfair?
