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

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

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

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

Hands off! Boris Johnson and David Davis are about to play hardball

As May starts her negotiations over Brexit, she might recall Thatcher’s reminiscences in 1993 about her own talks with Brussels, in which she said: “There’s not a strand of equity and fairness in Europe; they’re out to get as much as they can. So I tackled it on that basis.”  reported the Sunday Times.Boris Johnson and David Davis can both be exceptionally charming,  but when necessary,  that’s the front.  Underneath they are prepared to beat the crap out of any EU chief or Remoaner who pushes his luck. Continue reading

Independent thinking Boris will meet the President in Washington this week

Boris Johnson is travelling to Washington on Tuesday for a series of high level meetings when he will meet with some of President Trump’s closest aides, and likely the President.   Boris is emerging as a key channel for the Americans in recent weeks, reports Tim Shipman in the Sunday Times. His constructive relationship with Jared Kushner ensured that British people are exempt from the President’s attempted ban on some predominantly Muslim countries. Boris will meet with his opposite number, Rex Tillerson, and talk with US intelligence chiefs, soothing the recent hiccup over spy rumours.  He will meet with senior Congressional Republic readers , and is likely to meet the President.
