    Boris may play up to his eccentric Professor image but he is intelligent under all that bluster. Of course he could make a case for Leave or Remain with equal passion. Most intelligent people could whether they agreed with the sentiment or not.

    Making a case in a debate is not necessarily about taking sides. That is the very real problem with the current divisive politics - the idea that it is about picking sides.

    I guess you think Cameron is not a typical politician then, since when he lost the referendum, he didn't switch sides to stay in power but promptly quit.

    Every man has a right to challenge his conscience,

    Boris made his choice and decided Leave,
    rightly or wrongly he has made his decision.
