The Observer - Top Tories say Johnson return ‘would risk the party’s death’

Summary of the front page

The Observer says that senior Tories were last night engaged in a frantic campaign to stop Boris Johnson from staging a dramatic return to Downing Street, with claims he would cause further economic damage and risk “the end of the Conservative party”. The paper shows a photo of Johnson, which he released himself, lobbying an MP on the phone to muster backing for his leadership bid.

The front page uses an image of Boris Johnson on the phone to Lee Anderson, with his thumb up. The former PM is attempting to muster up support for him to return to No10.
