The Work and Pensions Secretary said she remains open to the idea of a “Bamber” joint leadership with the former Foreign Secretary in next month’s battle to take over from Theresa May. Ms Rudd also said she could become Mr Johnson’s Chancellor saying she "would like to lower taxes – we have to be the low tax party because people have certain expectations and they need to be able to look after their own money”. She also commented on the row over the UK’s new 5G network saying, “we should be able to do business with China and Huawei”.
Ms Rudd also said during the 2016 referendum that she would not like Mr Johnson to drive her home.
However, during an interview with The Daily Telegraph Ms Rudd said Mr Johnson was not offended and they get on well.
Ms Rudd added: “I have worked with him before. He was Foreign Secretary, I was Home Secretary. We were able to work together.”
She also said she has ruled herself out of standing for a spot in Number 10 after saying last month that the door was “slightly ajar” to her standing.
