If Boris hadn’t fought May, risking everything, we would be controlled by EU until 2024

A front page article in today’s Sunday Times reveals exactly why Boris Johnson had to write his apocalyptic Brexit article, and how he battled so ferociously to defend the red lines of Brexit, he prevailed and May had to back down from a disastrous EU  deal.

The Sunday Times reported:  It emerged that Johnson wrote his bombshell Brexit article published last weekend after seeing a paper on Britain’s negotiating position signalling that May was on the verge of backing a deal that would have forced Britain to agree any changes in regulations with Brussels even after leaving the EU.  Continue reading

Boris has behaved nobly and honourably over Brexit

Only one politician has behaved nobly over Brexit, said Peter Oborne and that is Boris Johnson.Boris has shown an extraordinary sense of responsibility, he repeatedly warned voters of the difficulties of leaving the EU, to the extent that he wrote two articles, as lawyers do, presenting the pros and the cons. The minutiae of the pros and cons have been exhaustively discussed in a torrent of Daily Telegraph articles.  Continue reading

Too much time and energy wasted on Brussels negotiations, says Nigel Lawson

Nigel Lawson says he is not surprised Boris Johnson is frustrated. He is shocked at the negative approach of the Government to Brexit, and he completely understands why the Foreign Secretary finally spoke out.

The former chancellor said public finances would be boosted and regulations cut regardless of a trade deal – and Theresa May and Philip Hammond should have been highlighting the advantages of leaving the EU.

The Tory peer said: ‘It is bizarre that it has been left to a seemingly freelance operation by Boris Johnson, Foreign Secretary, to explain what these benefits are.  Continue reading

Overwhelming praise from journos and editors for Boris Johnson’s vision on Brexit

Journalists and editors are lining up to praise in glowing terms the fearless  power and imagination of Boris’s vision for Brexit.

As Andrew Gimson says in his article, Timid Tories need a warrior like Boris:   It is a rallying cry to the troops. Johnson steps forward like Henry V before Agincourt. Gimson says later on: Do we really want to show such an anxious attitude to Europe?  Continue reading

John Redwood said paying into the EU after Brexit is breaking the law

Continuing to pay into the EU budget after Brexit would break the law, ex-Cabinet minister John Redwood claimed today.   The senior Brexiteer publicly defended Boris Johnson’s revival of the discredited £350million a week claim today.

Mr Redwood played down the row and said the important issue was Britain currently sends a ‘lot of money’ to Brussels and will not in future’.

He told the Today programme: ‘Everybody knows that it is an awful lot of money so wouldn’t it be more productive about how we spend that money when we have come out and also to discuss the point that many of us don’t think there is any moral, political or legal reason to go on paying them, once we have left.  Continue reading

Truly inspirational, brimful of hope, Boris explains Brexit

Anyone who reads Boris Johnson’s article in today’s Daily Telegraph can be in no doubt we have to leave the EU.  We are not and never have been in sympathy with the fundamental concept of the EU.  As a trade arrangement, yes, but the EU interference in our political structure has always been a huge step too far.

Boris explains in some depth exactly what has always gone wrong with our EU membership – our fundamental belief that we cannot accept the core belief of ever closer union and an EU superstate.  And reform has never been possible.  The response has only been “more and more Europe!”  as EU chiefs endlessly complain about the moaning and groaning of the British.
