Boris Johnson is terrified Parliament might vote for a fresh referendum, which shows he is a Tory charlatan haunted by his lies.
The Prime Minister is spooked by increasing calls from MPs to put his Brexit plan to the people because the chancer fears that he’d lose that second vote.
Experts calculate his Brexit scam would cut incomes – 6.4% lower after a decade than if we stayed in Europe.
After his £350million-a-week for the NHS and juicy trade deal lies of 2016, the real choice is now clear...
Add the Conservative government’s own Operation Kingfisher contingency plan, detailing how working-class Leave areas such as Sunderland and Preston will be hit hardest – 29 of Brexit’s 33 worst victims conned into wanting to quit three years ago – and Johnson’s defeat is certain.
Surrendering his own red lines to get Brexit done is the desperation of an egomaniac, one who today forces a humiliated Queen to read in Parliament a Tory election manifesto.
Johnson is the arsonist lighting destructive fires and then evading responsibility.
He’s a gangster politician without principle who revived negotiations only by offering the potential customs border down the Irish Sea he foolishly claimed was “crazy” and would create an Ulster “semi-colony” of the EU when it was Theresa May’s idea.
This PM’s plan is worse than May’s bad scheme – squeezing the economy tighter, according to the authoritative UK in a Changing World think-tank, while exposing employment, consumer and environmental rights to assault from Brextremist Right-wing fanatics hell-bent on creating a deregulated Treasure Island off Europe’s coast for the world’s tax-dodging rich elite.
Jeremy Corbyn is facing intensifying pressure from comrades John McDonnell and Rebecca Long-Bailey to champion a fresh referendum before an election.
The Labour leader, a shadow cabinet Brexiteer told me, won’t budge and wants his shot at No 10 first. We’ll see.
Corbyn’s immediate quandary, I’m told, is whether to sack any Labour MPs voting for Johnson’s fraudulent offer.
Corbyn’s masterstroke would be to endorse Johnson’s Brexit – if it’s tied to approval in a confirmatory ballot.
Will he? Go on, Jezza, be brave and do the right thing.
That way you’d win the referendum and have a better chance in the election.
