Constant attacks on Boris Johnson are making his rivals look desperate

An excellent article by Peter Oborne discusses the vicious plot going on right now to get rid of Boris Johnson and many of the plotters are in the Tory party.  But unless you are on twitter all the time like me, you wouldn’t know that the Get Boris campaigns have been going on for yonks, even before Brexit.

Here are some of the rivals who have been trying to take down Boris,  one or two of them since before Theresa May became PM. They are waxing ever more desperate as they fail to achieve their goal. Continue reading

The Decepticons are trying to bring down our PM, Boris and Brexit

Journalist Peter Oborne has written repeatedly that the then PM Cameron and Osbo had done a deal with the Blairites.  He later wrote that Cam was planning to kick out the right wing Brexiteers in the party, in favour of Tristram Hunt and Rachel Reeves, forming a “new” Remainer Tory party.

That plan was foiled by the guts of one man – Boris Johnson, backed by a rock solid phalanx of Brexiteers.   All the advantages were on the side of Remain.  The money, the media, the manpower were Remain’s – but every Brexiteer was so fired up, they were prepared to prevail or die.  Continue reading

Brand May is like an Elvis impersonator – and not very good one at that

The Tories are the only party worth voting for and they are bound to win – but Theresa May is the weakest link.  She is a hard Remoaner but has nicked Brexit’s beliefs to persuade us she is caring and for the people.  I don’t believe a word of it.

Before she became Prime Minister, Peter Oborne described May as “an empty politician without beliefs.”  He said she always put politics before principle. 

The way she handled the child abuse inquiry proved he was right.  May delayed and delayed the child abuse inquiry, until it never happened – campaigners and child abuse councillors lost faith that it ever would happen. Two members of her  panel also sent bullying, abusive letters to some alleged victims, and were ordered to stand down. Continue reading

May outclassed by Boris so descends to undermining

Several articles in the Mail on Sunday and in the Sunday Times, including one by the normally accurate Adam Boulton, omit such fundamental. facts that they can only be regarded as stitch up/hatchet jobs.

The facts  ignored are these.  When Boris Johnson met various US top aides of Donald Trump, he was described as “brilliant” by one of these aides and his meetings were exceptionally successful. The independent thinking of our Foreign Secretay was well received. Continue reading

The Madness of King George

Osbo has accepted the job of Editor of the London Standard, but his editor role has not been approved by the advisory committee on business appointments (Acoba).  So  indignant are his constituents and others,  a petition on site 38 degrees gathered momentum over Saturday with over 100,000 signatures.The organisers of the petition wrote on the page: ‘It’s not appropriate for someone to be a member of the government and also control a huge amount of the media.” Continue reading

“Intellectually brilliant” Boris Johnson joins new “supertight” Brexit team

When Boris Johnson first became Foreign Secretary, the media jumped on him, trying to make the most of anything they saw as a “gaffe”.  That has now ended. Boris is a workaholic and a lightning quick study. He has been described as the most learned, gifted Foreign Secretary since Lord Curzon by journalist Peter Oborne. Continue reading

Sir Tim Barrow, the Kremlinologist who stood up to Putin, replaces Sir Snitch

Sir Tim Barrow, replacement for Sir Ivan Rogers,  is known as a fixer, who gets the job done.  He has worked with Boris Johnson on a daily basis, who described him as  brilliant, and they get on great. A Whitehall source says Sir Tim knows everyone and is an amazing diplomat. timbarrowHe has solid achievements to his credit.  While in Brussels, he defeated repeated attempts to create a European army.   He has proved his mettle by standing up for British businesses in Russia and held tough conversations on Ukraine and Syria.
