Think tank urges Boris to up his game

‘Red Tory’ think tank ResPublica has challenged foreign secretary Boris Johnson to take more control of the UK’s diplomatic agenda.

ResPublica’s founder, Phillip Blond, is the architect of the Red Toryism concept, which has found a receptive audience in Downing Street.
