The plot that did for Boris, now threatens the future of Britain

Yes here is a conspiracy for you.   Theory it is not, according to inside sources with good contacts into Westminster and the House Of Commons.   This is what happened over the last few months, from this insider’s point of view.

Michael Gove had plotted against Boris Johnson with George Osborne right from the moment Boris declared for LEAVE.  Gove joined the LEAVE camp purely to create an opportunity to knife Boris, and then open the way for Theresa May by dividing any LEAVE supporting MPs, and then either losing to or dropping out in favour of Leadsom.

The plot has been stunningly successful so far, with Boris, trusting Gove, his erstwhile friend since Oxford days, crushed and bewildered, as are many LEAVE supporting MPs.

Could Boris sense something wasn’t quite right?  He often looked uncharacteristically worried during the campaign.

If Theresa May wins the leadership – the only substantial REMAIN candidate currently leading, the consequences for the Conservative Party will be terminal.  Many MPs were well aware of the Boris-killing plot and are readily jumping on her declared support list, now the execution had taken place.

Leadsom is also part of the plot.  The plotters want her to take the lead for the LEAVE camp, and so May and Leadsom would be the two that go the membership for the final selection.  As Leadsom has no previous experience in politics other than as a District Councillor, the idea is that Theresa May will walk the membership part of the leadership battle against her.  May would hope to have enough support to have enough post some of her supporters into the Leadsom camp, to block Liam Fox, the only genuine contender for LEAVE.

The only hope for LEAVE is, in fact, Liam Fox.  He’s in the frame but needs eurosceptic MPs to stop being bewildered by the Gove/Boris antics and realise they still have a chance if they move quickly.  Fox has only to come second in the Parliamentary round, as the membership will be almost certain to back him against Theresa May in the membership round.  At least there would be a very high probability.  So wake up,eurosceptic MPs.  Understand the plot, and back Liam Fox now.  Or Britain will not be free, despite the referendum win for LEAVE.

Liam Fox says Britain needs ‘Brexit for grown-ups’ in Tory leadership bid

Conservative leadership contender Liam Fox today demanded “Brexit for grown-ups” as he blasted colleagues Boris Johnson and Michael Gove for their “Oxford Union politics”.

The former defence secretary said the fallout from Justice Secretary Mr Gove’s last-minute decision to join the race is a distraction at a time when the country is facing huge change.

Mr Gove ended Mr Johnson’s hopes of entering Number 10 when he made the shock announcement he would challenge his Brexit ally in the contest, sparking accusations of treachery.

Dr Fox told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: “We are now 10 weeks away from having a new prime minister, we’re in the process of electing a prime minister who will actually take us out of the European Union, and yet we seem to be permanently distracted by what can only be described as the politics of the Oxford Union in recent days.”

He added: “I think it was a distraction, we need Brexit for grown-ups and we need to be talking about the big issues.

“We need to be talking about our aims, our trading positions, what our security relationship will be, also what domestic changes we will have to make. How will we have to restructure our Government?

“How will we have to change Whitehall? We’ll have to introduce for example a department of trade.”

Turning to his Brexit negotiation proposals, the Leave campaigner criticised the EU’s top trade official Cecilia Malmstrom after she told the BBC’s Newsnight programme the UK cannot begin trade talks with the bloc until after it has left.

Dr Fox warned that the EU Commission needs to take a “sensible approach”, describing Ms Malmstrom’s comments as the most “bizarre and stupid position” which would harm all EU countries.
