Boris right to pay £450M to Iran because we owe them the money

Some tweeters are moaning that Boris Johnson and Philip Hammond have agreed to pay a huge sum like £450 million which will help free Nazanin.  Those people should look at the actual facts and realise we might be in the wrong.

The Sun reports today:  An international court ordered the UK to reimburse Teheran after the MoD reneged on a deal to sell Chieftan tanks to Iran in 1979, but still kept Iran’s cash. Continue reading

Boris’s bravery in fighting off government Brexit sellout sees him bound to top of leadership polls

When Boris found out that the Remoaners in the government were planning a transition period until 2024, he hurled himself into the breach and fought it off like a tiger.  His stirring article bursting with enthusiasm for Brexit was like a hand grenade, hurled into appalling mess that Brexit has become.  That bravery has seen Boris bounce to the top of the ConHome leadership poll, from his worst rating ever, four weeks ago.

It duplicates the results of the YouGov poll, that had Boris first in line, with Jacob Rees Mogg second.  (Ruth Davidson isn’t eligible.)

Oddschecker shows Boris is now the top choice for Tory leader and also the top choice for next Tory PM.

Brexit is getting nowhere and the strategy of appeasement adopted by the PM and David Davis is manna to EU Chiefs, who recognise patsies when they see them.  They clearly have no intention of giving us a good deal. 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

Boris will resign before the weekend if May won’t accept his vision of Brexit

Breaking.  The Daily Express reported today that if May won’t accept Boris’s vision of Brexit, which is what we voted for, no EU control, Boris will resign by the weekend.

He told reporters in New York today he was not going to resign and said the Cabinet is a “nest of singing birds”.  Continue reading

Boris is fighting Brexit from within the Cabinet, to protect his party

When Boris was Mayor of London, the battles for the rights of Londoners, the black cab trade,  police numbers,  funding and economic decisions,  were always full bloodedly thrashed out in private,  away from the media.

So discreet was Boris, at one stage, he was getting it from both sides. Black cab drivers were abusing him on the roads as he rode his bike, while Osbo and Cameron were ganging up to force him to favour Uber, and push black cabs off the road. An immovable Boris wouldn’t shift.  He didn’t think it was right, so in the end, Osbo took the issue of Uber away from Boris and handled it himself. 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
