A controversial Tory activist who claimed Boris Johnson had become too ‘woke’ has been working on Penny Mordaunt’s leadership campaign.

Craig Dillon denounced the Prime Minister on US television, accusing him of being too heavily influenced by environmental campaigners such as Greta Thunberg.

Launch organiser: Craig Dillon

The digital campaigns expert, who used the pseudonym Thomas Corbett-Dillon, told Fox News: ‘It is chaos, it really is. We elected Boris to be the British Trump. He was going to shake up the system, deliver Brexit, he was going to stick it to the elite but he very quickly got sucked in by the globalist agenda…

‘He forgot he is a Conservative. He went very hard on lockdown, very hard on vaccines, he became woke. He fully signed up to this Greta Thunberg idea of “the world is ending” which is not what the Conservative people voted for.’

The Daily Mail understands that Mr Dillon’s work for Miss Mordaunt included organising her campaign launch in Westminster last week.

He continued: ‘Boris was elected by a very large group of working class voters, it is the first time they have voted for a Conservative politician and these people want simple things: more jobs, lower tax, tough on crime, tough on the border and tough on our enemy.

Thomas Corbett-Dillon told Fox News: ‘It is chaos, it really is. We elected Boris to be the British Trump. He was going to shake up the system, deliver Brexit, he was going to stick it to the elite but he very quickly got sucked in by the globalist agenda…

‘But he got sucked into this globalist agenda that just was not what the people wanted so eventually the MPs started listening to the people on the ground and realised this was not the leader for them any more.’

Miss Mordaunt has faced scrutiny over her record on trans rights.

Attorney General Suella Braverman, who is backing Liz Truss after being knocked out of the race herself, was asked in an interview at the weekend whether Miss Mordaunt was ‘too woke’ to lead the Conservative Party. She replied: ‘My view of Penny is that she is woke. Yes.’
