According to reports Boris Johnson sees his job as Prime Minister “too much like hard work” and wants to get back to writing.
Johnson has allegedly likened his job as the Conservative leader and Prime Minister to “pulling a jumbo jet down the runway.”
This comes as Dominic Cummings gave fresh speculation over Johnson’s’ future and claimed he doesn’t want to “go on and on” and could quit even if he wins the next general election.
The Daily Mail reported that the Prime Minister already has his plans sketched out, but Downing Street dismissed this as “utter nonsense.”
A source told the Daily Mail that Johnson said, “This job is too much like hard work.
“It’s like pulling a giant 747 down the runway with a harness on your back. Every morning you get up and have to start pulling.
“I do not want to go on and on like Thatcher and Blair. I want to get through this Parliament, win again and then head off soon afterwards.
“I can’t wait till I can go back to writing, have fun and make money.”
Johnson’s’ former chief advisor wrote on his blog, “Unlike other PMs, this one has a clear plan to leave at the latest a couple of years after the next election, he wants to make money and have fun, not ‘go on and on’.”
Johnson’s’ press secretary said, “The PM has actually been asked this before and has said himself it’s utter nonsense, so that still stands.”
