The Johnson Game

Whenever I hear one of Boris Johnson's rip-roaring speeches, I am reminded of the con man in David Mamet's House of Games:

Mike: It's called a confidence game. Why? Because you give me your confidence? No. Because I give you mine.

Bear that in mind when you listen to the prime minister tomorrow. Remember his previous confidence-giving speeches and what actually resulted.
