Brexiteer MPs may be outnumbered but on the field of battle they are worth 10,000 men. Each

Brexiteers are heavily outnumbered in Parliament and in the government, but so principled and brave are the politicians fighting for us, with such outstanding fighting spirit, I believe there is no doubt that Brexit, as we voted for it, will prevail.

 

 

 

 

I have been deeply moved to see politicians whom I knew little about fight like tigers for democracy, social justice and the rights of ordinary people.  This is what politics is supposed to be about.  It is inspiring stuff and restores my faith in politicians. Continue reading

Truth about Boris Johnson’s comment on Libya

Boris Johnson wrote an article in the Daily Telegraph, warning against the danger of war with Libya.

Boris in lead to be next PM amidst fears of Gov Brexit sellout

A new YouGov poll puts Boris Johnson in the lead as the politician activists would most like to see lead the party when May steps down.  

May has said she would like to lead the party into the next election.  This doesn’t seem popular with the Tory faithful.   Because it was left to Boris Johnson in a last ditch stand, to fight off  the Rudd/Hammond attempt to extend the transition period to 2024.   Continue reading

He’s had enough – Boris hosts hard Brexit lobby group

Boris Johnson fought too hard to win Brexit to let it slip now.  The Rudd/Hammond stitchup to have a 2024 transition period was a step too far, and Remoaner mandarin Jeremy Heywood who tried to freeze Boris out of Brexit discussions needs to wind his neck in.  David Davis knew about the stitchup but did nothing.  This says everything we need to know about which side he is on.

In a last minute intervention, Boris hurled himself into the breach and wrestled the transition period down to 2 years. 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

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
