Boris Johnson's next move: Making millions or a comeback?


Just three years after leading the Conservatives to their biggest election victory in 30 years, Boris Johnson is stepping down as prime minister. The man who dreamed as a child of being "world king" is now planning his next career move.
The financial benefits of a speaking career will not be lost on the ex-PM, says Tim Bale, Professor of Politics at Queen Mary University of London. "By all accounts, Boris Johnson is obsessed with money and his lack thereof compared to so many of his friends. He will do whatever he can to put that situation right."

This was covered in BBC Online
Professor Bale was also quoted in the Guardian’s article: ‘The most controversial PM since Lloyd George: historians on Boris Johnson’.
