Not for Johnson. According to Rory Stewart, Johnson promised him, only a few days ago, that he wouldn't campaign for no deal. What he promises or what he doesn't promise - it's all the same to him.

I'm convinced BoJo lives in an alternative reality that bears no resemblance to actual reality.....

BoJo has re-arranged reality as a new venture for The Bullingdon Klub. Now they break up the country and don't pay the bill for all the stuff they trash. Restaurant-smashing is too easy and no one likes to pay for their fun with cash! Well, not their own cash.
Actual reality is so old-hat now. Why bother with facts and all that when you can do what you want instead, supplying alternative facts (aka lies) as the fancy takes you? Facts are just a silly old raincoat coat that should be replaced by a T-shirt with a packet of fags up the sleeve!. (Oops - wrong socio-economic class metaphor).
