Rory Stewart: 'Boris and I are complete chalk and cheese. I’m suspicious of the whole show'
Rory Stewart has had a busy few months… He has gone from Tory Cabinet minister to running against Boris Johnson for party leader, then quitting to become an independent candidate for Mayor of London. So, what has he learnt from his ups and downs?
I last interviewed Rory Stewart a year ago at Wormwood Scrubs. He was Prisons Minister. He arrived in a suit, tie and official Jaguar. This time we meet in south London’s Brixton Market. He comes by Tube, shorn of his ministerial entourage, wearing jeans, open-necked shirt and raincoat.
