Boris and Dave - how different are they?

Jonny Clark

25th April 2016

I don't know about you, but I'm finding the whole EU referendum debate a really insightful examination of the behaviour of our politicians. I find it incredible that politicians from the same political party can be so vitriolic towards their close colleagues. I suppose politics really is a dirty game!

Here's a fun, interactive starter for your next Politics class which may aid a discussion about how different politicians and approaches may be. Presented with 10 quotations, could you work out which are from Boris Johnson and which are from David Cameron? Do the two men have different styles or can you spot a different take on things?
