Do Bedford Independent readers believe Mr Johnson to be sincere when he promises generous support for public services and expresses opinions which seem to be tolerant and almost liberal?
He may be sincere, but if you vote the Conservatives in with an effective majority and if he then, sincerely, tries to keep those promises, his party will turn on him because they are not interested in the welfare of ordinary people.
So don’t waste your vote.
If you believe that Mr Johnson is not sincere – then don’t vote for him anyway.
I am not urging your readers of this letter to vote for any party in particular.
I am simply pointing out the fallacy in Mr Johnson’s adopted position.
Mrs V Kahn
